We’ve only just left, yet the mountain peaks already seem close enough to touch. The shop assistant was right, we’re in the heart of the Alps surrounded by a stunning mountain landscape as far as the eye can see. We make our way along the 250 km of well-signed hiking trails, taking in views of the valleys and summits of the Silvretta Alps and marvelling at the impressively diverse plant life (there are more than 900 types of plants here). Unsurprisingly, we’re already thinking about staying longer. We meet our friends at the panorama restaurant and spontaneously decide to extend our holiday. Then we take the cable car back to Samnaun. The trip is free thanks to our Guest Cards, as is the SamnaunBus, the visitor programme and entry to the Alpenquell Erlebnisbad swimming centre – the ideal place to rest our weary legs and plan the next day of our hike.
