This theme path begins at the stop "Samnaun-Laret, village", at the house where Father Maurus Carnot was born. First it goes down the steep footpath to the Trua bridge and then along the Schergenbach to the Museum Chasa Retica in Samnaun-Plan. The field path from the Trua bridge to Plan invites in summer and in winter to walk and hike. A total of 17 informative panels present the life of the important Samnauner. The boards are attached to the light poles, thanks to the lighting you can also walk along this memorial path in the evening.

Author’s recommendation

Why not visit the museum Chasa Retica? A permanent exhibition showing the life and work of the poet-monk has been set up in the rooms of the Father-Marus-Carnot Foundation.
