Spectacular Views

View in Graubünden
Parpan Rothorn, Piz Bernina, Alp Grüm: The only vantage points in Graubünden with unforgettable views have made it into the selection.

1. Alp Grüm, Valposchiavo

Mountains, glaciers and the Val Poschiavo – the Bernina Express stops on the southern side of the Bernina Pass at Alp Grüm before it goes downhill at a 70% decline to Val Poschiavo. A quick 20 minute stay is plenty of time to capture the magnificent alpine panorama with your camera.

2. Rhine Gorge, Flims Laax Falera

Water always finds a way: Over the course of 10,000 years the river Rhine has slowly dug through the landscape creating «Switzerland’s Grand Canyon». The Rhine Gorge, or named «Ruinaulta» in Romanic, is a playground for adventurers of all ages with its jagged rock bed and steep cliffs fringed by pines, rare birds, orchids and impressive views.

3. Albigna, Bregaglia Engadin

If the granite peaks reflect in the water, the fascination of the mountains is increased two fold. You can experience this on the dam of Lake Albigna that allows the viewer an incomparable panoramic view towards Val Bregaglia. The Swiss electricity company built the wall in the 1950s. It serves both energy production and protection against flooding.

4. Observation deck on the Piz Mundaun, Surselva

Hospitality means giving new perspectives. We prove this at the observation deck on the Piz Mundaun in the family-friendly Surselva district which was opened in 2006: At 2064m above sea level, it offers an unobstructed view of the Alpine panorama. The Digirama panels from Swisstopo provide eye-openers for young and old. Mountain peaks, valleys, villages and livestock Alps are all easy to discover.
