This hike begins in the centre of Samnaun-Compatsch. The slightly ascending forest road takes you to the "Mottas Laretas" hill, where benches invite you to linger and enjoy the beautiful view of Samnaun-Compatsch. This is also where the quotation and aphorism path begins, which we will follow until we reach the national border. When crossing the Malfragbach stream you simultaneously cross the border between Switzerland and Austria. The path now continues over Zanderswiesen. After crossing the Zandersbach, keep right and walk toward Spiss. At the playground after about 300 metres turn right again and cross the Zandersbach once again. Now you are in Switzerland again. The trail follows the wild course of the stream as far as Spissermühle, where the PostBus takes hikers back to Samnaun.
