The Samnaun Valley is the lowest side valley of the Engadine and the border valley to Tyrol. Nestled in magnificent mountain scenery, the five villages Compatsch, Laret, Plan, Ravaisch and Samnaun village lie between 1'700 and 1'840 meters. In Samnaun, you will not only be in the only duty free area in Switzerland, but also in a unique mountain world.
Samnaun village is the tourist capital of the Samnaun Valley. Through the village is Europe's highest shopping mile at 1'840 m. The Piz Ot (2'759 m), which seems to protect the Samnaun village, stands majestically over Samnaun.
Winter - boundless winter sports fun
Samnaun is part of the unique Silvretta Arena Samnaun / Ischgl, the largest ski arena in the Eastern Alps, which means unlimited skiing on 250km of slopes. And thanks to the high position and the good snowmaking possibilities guaranteed snow safety from the end of November to the beginning of May.
In the summer of 2016 the existing four-seater chairlift Flimjoch was replaced by an ultra-modern 8-seater chairlift. The Flimjochbahn is the important and heavily frequented connecting cable on the axis Idalp / AT - Alp Trida / CH.
