Greina Plateau

The Greina Plateau (Plaun la Greina) is a unique, Alpine tundra located between the cantons of Graubünden and Ticino, at an elevation of 2200 meters. It can only be reached by foot from five different starting points in Graubünden and Ticino and has therefore remained an intact jewel.

The Greina Plateau lies between the cantons of Graubünden and Ticino. Even as early as the Roman era, important routes across the Alps led through this region. The plateau has remained an untouched jewel because it is still only reached on foot.

Brienzer Rothorn

The three and four thousand metre peaks cluster round the Brienzer Rothorn. Early risers may be rewarded by seeing the sunrise between the mountains. There is a cable-car from Sörenberg and, from Brienz, the only scheduled steam-powered rack railway service in Switzerland. Various different opportunities for walking, with varying degrees of difficulty, or you can go right over to the Brünig Pass, 4.5 hrs.

Guarda – The Schellenursli-Village

Guarda in the Lower Engadine is so beautiful a village that it was awarded the Wakker Prize. It also received the distinction "Of national importance". One of its stately houses inspired Alois Carigiet when he drew the home of Schellenursli.
