For the first 300 meters you walk along the sidewalk along the valley road. After the small bridge, turn left down to the Schergenbach. Passing the sports field you reach Samnaun-Ravaisch and the valley station of the double-decker cable railway. To the left you will see the Schergenbach, to the right the mixed forest with larches and pines. In Samnaun-Plan there is also the valley museum Chasa Raetica, presumably the oldest building in the Samnaun valley dating from the 16th century. Immediately after leaving the village you walk past the approximately 50 bee colonies of the Samnaun beekeeper. You will reach your destination of Samnaun-Laret after about an hour.
