The Engadine–Meran Route offers a fascinating PostBus ride through the Swiss National Park, up and over the Ofen Pass, and through the picturesque Val Müstair valley to Mals/Malles in South Tirol.
Take a ride on the PostBus Engadine–Meran Route, through the untouched landscapes of Switzerland’s National Park – and witness the picturesque beauty of the Val Müstair valley on your way to Mals/Malles (you require an identity card or passport in order to cross the border into Italy). And from the end of June until mid October, you’re able to commence the scenic journey from Davos.
Traversing the Flüela Pass you reach Zernez: ideal starting point for excursionsand healthy hikes through the National Park or the Val Müstair. Shortly thereafter, the ascent begins over the lengthy Ofen Pass. Here, delightful views open up over the spectacular Val Müstair, the Vinschgau and imposing Ortler Massif (PostBus stop Süsom Givè – Passhöhe).
Following the sight of the beautifully kept little Münstertal villages, you finally reach the Müstair border village – home to the world-renowned Benedictine Convent of St. John, a UNESCO World Heritage Site (PostBus stop Müstair, Clostra Son Jon). And further attractions are presented with visit to the «Tessanda Val Müstair» hand-weaving establishment in Sta Maria or local «Chasa Jaura» museum in Valchava.
And the medieval little town of Glurns/Glorenza is reached soon after crossing the Italian border (PostBus stop Haltestelle Glurns/Glorenza, Stadtplatz). Discover stately castle homes inside an intact ring-wall, along with picturesque pergolas. From Mals/Malles the Vinschgerbahn takes you to Merano, in a good hour (PostBus stop Mals railway station /Malles station) – and if you’d like to enjoy this ride too, tickets for the Vinschgerbahn railway are available from members of the PostBus crew.
