Where the Via Claudia Augusta climbs from the north to its peak, at the three-country corner of Switzerland-Italy-Austria, there lie the Tyrolean Oberland, Nauders at the Reschen Pass and the Kaunertal. The Upper Inn Valley and the Kaunertal Valley captivate with their originality. Nauders is a tourist stronghold. In between lies the customs station Altinfstermünz, founded in the Middle Ages. The villages along the Via Claudia Augusta are strung together like pearls. The many Rhaeto-Romanic houses give them a special flair.
