In addition to low-price shopping, the village of Samnaun and the Samnaun Valley offer unspoilt nature and a fantastic region for winter sports. Thanks to its situation, the area is ideal for excursions to the Lower Engadine and across the nearby borders.

Summer

With a network of over 250 kilometres of marked and groomed hiking trails the holiday region covers a broad spectrum of options ranging from sophisticated tours for experienced mountaineers to hikes along former smugglers’ trails through to relaxed walks along leisure trails.
Over 900 types of flowers – some of which grow exclusively in the region - thrive in the charming countryside of the Samnaun Valley. Along theme trails, such as the Animal Trail, Quotation and Aphorism Trail, Mountain Forest Trail and Plant Trail, information boards provide added interest. Two marmots, Murmina and Murmin, accompany walkers on the Fairytale Trail designed by the Grisons artist Rudolf Mirer. Bike riders benefit from 80 kilometres of well-documented mountain bike trails.
