Postbus drives up the Ofen Pass.
The Postbus travels through the Swiss National Park

The journey begins in Zernez and travels through the nature paradise at the Ofen Pass to cross the Swiss border in Müstair. From there, the journey takes you via Taufers to Mals, where a stop in Vinschgau is recommended. After changing bus and passing Lago di Résia over the long Reschen Pass, the driver from the local public transport company Südtiroler Automobildienst transports you up to Nauders and over the Norbertshöhe to Pfunds. There, you can change to the Postbus. After the journey through the romantic and wild Lower Engadin valley, you reach Scuol. You can easily end your trip here and take the Rhaetian Railway back to Zernez.

Of course, you also have the option of making a detour to Samnaun. Advertising for the region promises a duty-free shopping experience. But the real adventure is the Postbus journey. Try it yourself!

Vinschgau is a cultural and leisure region in South Tyrol that offers an enormous amount of diversity. There are historic items from the ancient world to be discovered, while food connoisseurs will be sure to get their money’s worth, and hikers and cyclists will also be rewarded with varied trails.

The tower in the lake

A prominent landmark in Vinschgau is the half-submerged tower in Lake Reschen. The deserted church tower is fascinating and fairytale-like, as well as a popular image on postcards. The Romanesque church was submerged when the lake was dammed shortly after the end of the Second World War.
