Nauders - "The Strong Village"/ Das starke dorf

Nauders is a Small "picture perfect" village located in the Tirolean alps, at 1400m of altitude. This makes it optimal as the ski area is guaranteed to have snow in winter.
The Village itself has been an Important crossroad point being situated on the VIA CLAUDIA AUGUSTA - a Road built at the time of the roman Empire, designed to cross the alps and link the Adriatic sea with the Danube river. You can still see remains of the road in The outskirts of Nauders. The village itself has 2 castles one in the center, watching over the village, and one built in the rocks, at the exit in a narrow pass, when head to Landeck.
When you arrive from the Austrian side (Italy is just 4 km away ) ,and u pass the previous village of Pfunds, the road suddenly climbs up on the side of a canyon wall, revealing a marvelous view to the upper Inn valley, dominated by the majestic 3000m peaks of Austria, Switzerland and Italy . You pass tunnel arches build in the rocks and climb higher and higher, starting to wonder where in these steeps could be a village....than after a few more turns you leave the valley of the upper Inn river and - Ohhh here it is, spreading in front of you a wide sunny terrace the village of Nauders is lazily resting!!!

or take a look at my adventures there...
I am putting my efforts into letting the World know about this beautiful place, as from my two winters experience I've seen very few english speaking tourists ( And you like to travel and discover new places,right? Otherwise you wouldn't be here ;). The place is mostly popular with German and Dutch tourists aswell as neighbouring Swiss and Lichtenstein guests. The number of French tourists is increasing from year to year aswell, because they come back and bring friends along next time. French find Austria cheaper for winter tourism compared to the french resorts.

And this is me and what I do in winter....being a snowboard instructor gives me the chance to spend the whole season in the places I love. To enjoy all weather conditions,ride the best places only known by the locals,and feel part of the family

    Good place. Pretty waiters, hit local music, nice atmosphere. But very expensive. I meant expensive if we shop around prices with Yeti Club, Billy's Bar and exactly Traktor RG ;)
