The culture trail is a well-maintained forest trail that begins with a leisurely ascent at the end of Samnaun-Compatsch. Along the exhibitions and quotations, you hike in the direction of Zanderstal. A beautiful view of neighbouring Spiss and the Muttakopf opens up. At the end of the culture trail, at the Malfragbach stream, you cross the national border. After about one kilometre, you cross the Zandersbach stream and leave Austrian territory again. Along the Zandersbach you reach the bus stop Spissermühle, where a PostBus leaves for Samnaun every hour.
