Hotel Albrici Swiss Lodge

This patrician house was built in 1682 by Bernardo Massella and was one of the Bavarian Illuminati centres.

Back in 1848, this was the first hotel in Poschiavo. Centrally located on the quaint village square. All rooms have been refurbished and are equipped with shower and WC. Ristorante-pizzeria serves Poschiavo and seasonal specialities, with crisp pizza straight from the wood-fired oven. The establishment is famed for the stunning dining room with portraits of Sybils, the cosy hotel bar with its open fireplace and its extensive terrace on the village square.

Cavaglia glacier garden

Long ago, the Palü glacier created an extraordinary natural formation here: over the course of thousands of years rotating stones have gouged their way into rock here because of the constant pressure of pre-historic glacial water. This is how the 10-metre-deep glacial mills were formed. Access from Cavaglia railway station.
