  • Paul Mura

    Glacier garden, Cavaglia (Poschiavo) / new building: opening July 1, 2021
    A natural gem, the pots of giants, shaped by the glaciers of the Ice Ages, located in the Cavaglia basin at the foot of the Bernina massif, towered over by Piz Palü!
    Access to the glacier mills is extremely easy: they are located near the train station, which you can get to with the legendary “trenino rosso”, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008.
    The glacier garden is open from May to October. Framed by rich flora and varied alpine vegetation, the glacier mills are one of the most impressive that Val Poschiavo has to offer!

    Incredibly impressive: For thousands of years, stones and glacier water have ground or washed smooth, round holes in the rock.

    Impressive natural spectacle ... lots of information about the formation of the glacier mills and the history of this place.The paths are well developed and secured. It's worth a visit. Reachable in 10 minutes from the train station Cavaglia.
