We decided to break our journey on the Bernina express with an overnight break in Poschiavo. I cannot recommend this enough.
The area around Poschiavo is most beautiful stretch of the line, sandwiched between the White Lake at Ospizio Bernina, the lake at Poschiavo and circular viaduct of Brusio, towards the end of the line, which describes a 360 degree curve – just like a toy railway.
This lovely hotel is an excellent choice - set in a picturesque square, right in the middle of tiny and charming Poschiavo. Check in could not have been quicker. Good shower. the bathroom is basic but clean and the sheets and duvets smelled clean, which I love. Breakfast was somewhat lacking (no croissants?) but they served a good cappuccino. I find the closer to Italy you get, the nearer perfect the cappuccino gets.
We spent our afternoon in Poschiavo completing the beautiful walk via Le Prese to Miralago walking the length of Lake Poschiavo. About 7km if you get the train back from Miralago. Stunning views and highly recommended.More
