Mountain hike in the most eastern part of Switzerland to the highest peak of the Samnaun Group (T4-).

The Muttler lies on the border between Graubünden and Tyrol in the mountain range between the Engadin and Samnaun valleys. For its impressive height of just under 3330 m, the Muttler is an astonishingly easy mountain; neither glaciers nor rocky climbing passages stand in the way of the trained mountaineer. The mountain consists of Bündnerschiefer and its conical shape is reminiscent of a volcano. The easiest way to reach the summit is from the Swiss customs exclusion area of Samnaun. From there, a marked mountain hiking trail (T3) leads to the summit via the north ridge. If you combine this trail with a descent via the south-west ridge (T4-), the result is a beautiful round tour. Worth knowing: Until 1912, Samnaun could only be reached from Austria, which is why Samnaun became a Swiss customs exclusion zone. Samnaun is also the only Swiss village where Tyrolean dialect is spoken.
