The Samnaun Valley is the first side valley to the left of the Swiss Engadine. Samnaun borders with Tyrol in Austria.

The five villages of the valley are embedded in a high-alpine landscape: Samnaun-Compatsch, Samnaun-Laret, Samnaun-Plan, Samnaun-Ravaisch and Samnaun-Dorf at altitudes of between 1,700 and 1,840 m.

Travel to Samnaun by car …

  • ... via Switzerland:
    Engadin Road (turn-off Vinadi, mountain passes Flüela, Albula and Julier or Vereina-Autoverlad. In winter you should take the Vereina Tunnel; in summer you can travel over Flüele Pass.
  • ... via Tyrol:
    on the Inntal state road via Landeck to Pfunds; turn-off Kajetans Bridge and via Spiss to Samnaun. The access road in the border area Switzerland-Austria is broader and better than the access road via Switzerland (one-way traffic in the tunnels).
  • ... via Italy:
    direction Milan or Merano via Resia Pass / Nauders to the turn-off Kajetans Bridge and via  Spiss to Samnaun

Please note that winter equipment (tyres/chains) is needed from November to the end of April!

To Hotel Garni Aurora:

On the valley road drive in the direction of Samnaun and before the harbour of Ravaisch take the first road to the right (sign: Einfahrt F - opposite the valley station of the aerial cable car). After approx. 100 m take the sharp right turn with direct access to Garni Aurora.

You can reach Samnaun via Landeck (A) or Scuol (CH) by train or bus.
