The hiking trail along the UNESCO World Heritage section of the Rhaetian Railway runs as near as possible to the Albula and Bernina railway line, regularly affording enchanting open views of an over 100-year-old total artwork in stunning Alpine scenery.

The beauty of Graubünden is world-renowned. No matter in what corner of the canton one travels, unique landscapes can be found everywhere- every spot in the mountain region is a masterpiece. In order to match this spectacular nature, the official white-red-and-white trail markers have been newly painted by an artist, called Stefan Rüesch.

After the white glacier waters of Lago Bianco, the route leads up to the fantastic vantage point of Sassal Mason with views of Piz Palü, its glacier seeming almost close enough to touch, the heart-shaped Lagh da Palü, Alp Grüm and Val Poschiavo. The peaceful high valley of Cavaglia below offers an invitation to linger.

 

Newly designed trail markers

Everyone knows them: the white-red-and-white trail markers that show hikers that way. From September 2017, five of these look a little different on this trail. Artist Stefan Rüesch has set his hand, or rather his brush, to these and made these signs live up to the beauty of the surrounding nature. True to the motto: Every spot a masterpiece.

Find those newly designed trail markers by clicking on the map above.

Public transport

Rhätische Bahn

Vor über 100 Jahren ging sie in Betrieb: die Berninalinie. 1910 wurde der direkte Zugbetrieb zwischen St. Moritz und Tirano aufgenommen. 61 Kilometer höchste Baukunst vor der Kulisse des höchsten Bündner Bergs. Dieser besondere Hochgenuss, der am gewaltigen Palü- und Morteratschgletscher vorbeiführt, der südliche Lebenslust und alpine Schönheit vereint, ist im Bernina Express tagtäglich erlebbar. Doch zuweilen stockt einem der Atem ob den exponierten Kurven und dem überwältigenden Bergpanorama.
