    A natural reservoir. There actually is. A prehistoric landslide has cut off the Valley in present-day Miralago and dammed the water. in 1904, the electricity company, Kraftwerke Brusio AG received regulatory approval to tap into the Lake and lower the lake level if necessary up to 5.50 m. We are already at the single negative point, which denied the maximum number of points the otherwise attractive mountain lake. So E.g. the wonderful lakeside terrace of the beautifully renovated former bath hotels loses Hotel Le prese on the north shore of the Lake through the often industrially produced low tide a little of its appeal, and the same applies to many other shore areas. But the Lake is still nice to scramble. Especially the footpath along the Eastern Shore is extraordinarily beautiful. The route of the road and railway line follows on the opposite side. Also on this page, the views are beautiful, but it will be not too confining. Otherwise, it is better the train also stops at the South end at Miralago as at the northern end at Le prese, which already represents an attraction not to be missed is the Valley.

    It is certainly the most interesting Lake you'll find around here, considering the wonderful Engadine Lakes a few kilometers from Poschiavo, but it's a nice setting for a walk. Maybe waiting for the Bernina red train that runs right along the lago di Poschiavo.

    Quick tour of an hour. But always nice to stop by the Lake. On foot or by bike. With little explorers even with the stroller. Not to be missed.
