An Auto Route from Austria to Switzerland's Engadine

The preferred route to reach southwestern Switzerland from western Austria is to stay away from the Arlberg Tunnel and the heavy traffic at Bludenz and Feldkirch. If you are proceeding west on the highway from Innsbruck (E60), turn south at Landeck on highway #315. Just north of Nauders at the Italian border, veer right and a little west on highway #27, entering Switzerland at Schalkl. Then follow the signs to Zernez, staying on #27, passing through Scuol and Zernez. Just north of St Moritz turn left on road #29 to Pontresina near St. Moritz.

The route, only the first few miles of which is Autobahn, offers a variety of scenery, ranging from pretty to spectacular. Once you reach Pontresina it is no trick to find your hotel as they are all well identified on signs throughout the town.
