In the Smugglers' Tracks

Already centuries ago a lively trading developed between the Montafon and the Prättigau. The state border made trading illegal, thus essential goods had to be smuggled between the valleys. Today, the path across the border is freely accessible and offers unique nature experiences and exciting stories.
