Guided tour
Rhaetian Railway in the Albula / Bernina Landscapes

Cavaglia Glacier Garden

During the ice age around 11 000 years ago, the Palü glacier formed huge holes in the ground at the foot of the Bernina massif. Ten metres deep and five metres wide are the glacial mills at Cavaglia - also called "pots of the giants". The impressive natural phenomenon with the natural sculptures in the buffer zone of the UNESCO World Heritage RhB line fascinates adults and children alike. The glacier garden, which has been made easily accessible, is in short walking distance from Cavaglia railway station.


Opening hours

The Glacier Garden is open from May to October. Admission is free - donations are welcome.
