Samnaun is a municipality in the district of Inn in the Swiss canton of Graubünden.HistoryThe valley was first used as a seasonal mountain pasture for the villages of Tschlin and Ramosch. By 1220 the first permanent farm houses are mentioned. These farm houses and fields were given as a gift to the Marienberg Abbey by the counts of Tarasp in the 12th century.GeographySamnaun has an area, as of 2006, of 56.2km2. Of this area, 46.1% is used for agricultural purposes, while 11.7% is forested. Of the rest of the land, 0.9% is settled (buildings or roads) and the remainder (41.2%) is non-productive (rivers, glaciers or mountains).The municipality is located in the Ramosch sub-district, of the Inn district. It is located in a left side valley of the Engadin valley, at an elevation of 1700-. It consists of five village sections; Compatsch, Laret, Plan (Plaun), Ravaisch and Samnaun.In the 19th century, Samnaun could only be reached by road from Spiss in Austria. Thus Samnaun was excluded from the Swiss customs territory, and retains a privileged 'duty-free' status, albeit not without controversy, in the twenty-first century. The exception was maintained even after a road was built in 1905 linking Samnaun to Martina in the Inn valley.
