Shadowing the turquoise, swiftly flowing Inn River, the Inntal (Inn Valley) has few major sights but the scenery is beautiful, particularly around Pfunds with its jagged peaks and thickly forested slopes. Many of the ornately frescoed houses here are similar in design to those found in the Engadine in Graubünden, Switzerland, further up the Inntal.
South of Pfunds, you have a choice of routes. If you continue along the Inn you’ll end up in Switzerland (infrequent buses). Alternatively, if you bear south to castle-crowned Nauders you’ll soon reach South Tyrol (Italy) by way of the Reschen Pass (open year-round).
