In the Samnaun Alps there are a total of 140 named summits as well as several famous skiing areas such as Ischgl and Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis.
The Samnaun Alps, called Samaungruppe in German, stretch in North Tyrol in Austria and in the Swiss Canton of the Grisons. They are a sub-group of the Central Alps - name-giving is the village of Samnaun, located in the only inhabited valley in this mountain chain.
The Samnaun Alps are delimited by the Lechtal Alps in the north, the Oetztal Alps in the east, the Sesvenna Alps in the south, the Silvretta Alps in the west and the Verwall Alps in the north-west. The mountain range includes several three-thousanders as well as some famous skiing areas, such as the Merdigjoch at See in the Paznaun Valley, the Silvretta Arena in Ischgl and Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis.
