A particularly fascinating section of the Cultural Trail of the Alps is situated in Switzerland's heartland, at the historic pass road leading to Mt. Gotthard.
The Binn Valley is Switzerland's treasure chest, where most mountain crystals are found. The area therefore attracts guests from everywhere in the world eager to hunt glittering crystals. Mt Eggerhorn is the best vantage point in the area. From here, see the Bernese Alps, the Goms Valley and even the Aletsch glacier.
A short hike from the southern shore of Lago di Poschiavo via the now densely forested and steep descent to Brusio - but a multitude of impressions.
