Duty-free paradise since 1892
Until 1912 Samnaun was only accessible via the only access road via Austria. This led to the fact that the Samnauner traded goods with the neighbouring Tyrol. This changed abruptly with the introduction of customs in 1848. Now all goods which were transported across the border had to be cleared through customs. The Samnauner defended themselves against this - with success. The Federal Council decided in 1892 that Samnaun would be duty-free. This status was also retained on Swiss territory in 1912 with the opening of the Samnaun road from Martina to Samnaun; the village in Graubünden still enjoys this status today - as the only region in Switzerland.
