The Blenio Valley in northern Ticino extends from the Lukmanier Pass (1914 meters above sea level) down the valley to Biasca. In summer, hikers encounter well preserved old villages and art treasures on the valley trail from Biasca via Acquarossa to Olivone. The valley also offers a broad spectrum of cultural offerings, including a large number of museums and churches.
Whether by "Trenino Rosso" or "Bernina Express", the red train compositions of the Rhaetian Railway or by car: the journey from the Engadine to the Puschlav, the southernmost of the 150 Grisons valleys, all the way to the Italian border takes you through some of Switzerland's most varied countryside.
Eastern Switzerland stretches from the shimmering waters of Lake Constance across the hilly Appenzellerland to the Alpine landscapes of Toggenburg, the Heidiland holiday region and the Glarnerland. Far off in the Rhine Valley is Vaduz with its princes' castle.
