Route: Ardez

Ardez (1,467 m above sea level) is a municipality in the canton of Graubünden and belongs to the Sur Tasna sub-district of the Inn district. It is located on the left side of the Lower Engadin valley above the Inn river. The Ardez landscape is nestled between the crystalline bulk of the Silvretta range and the Lower Engadin Dolomites. The municipal area extends from the Austrian border to the outskirts of the National Park, with the Piz Plavna Dadaint (3,166 m above sea level) as the highest point. Neighboring municipalities include Ftan, Tarasp, Zernez, Lavin, Guarda, and Galtür (Austria). The townscape of Ardez has remained virtually unaltered since 1622, with many Engadin buildings.
