"Skiing and Duty Free Shopping" Top 5 Page for this destination Samnaun by mabu

Samnaun Travel Guide: 46 reviews and 118 photos


Every year I go skiing for at least one week. My favorite place for skiing is the Ski Arena Samnaun-Ischgl.

This year I could enjoy two weeks skiing in one of the biggest ski resorts of the alps.

Duty Free Shopping

The whole valley up there is a tax free zone wich makes it a shopping paradise. Specialy for Tabacco, Alcohol, Parfumes and Fuel.

The Duty Free Zone is because earlier Samnaun could only be reached via Austria, wich would have made living up there very expensive having to pay import taxes for all goods.

Pros and Cons

    Very good and informative page. Too bad, Markus, we didn't check our holidays before, we stayed just behind Hotel Post!!
