Travel Tips for Poschiavo
Hiking in the Poschiavo Valley is very popular and there are lots of hiking paths. Just follow the yellow arrows. The signs usually indicate the approximate time to the destination. If there is a white/red/white tip of the yellow sign, then it is mountain path which needs more serious preparation like proper hiking boots, a map, snack, water bottle and preparation for weather changes and possibly a reservation for beds in a mountain hut.
Poschiavo - gateway to the south
The orignial settlers came from the south, the Roman empire and brought christianity. "Postclave" was first mentioned in 824. In the Middle Ages it made itself independent and started to orientate itself north and in 1803 joined the Confederatione Helvetica, today's Switzerland.
We came here on 29th December because we travelled the Bernina railway. On the way south we just passed through by train but decided to check it out on the way north. The small town with about 3500 inhabitants turned out to be a very pleasant surprise.
