Inn Valley

The hamlet of Lafairs lies in the valley of the Inn ("En" in Romansh), a 517km long river which originates in Graubünden, Switzerland, and which gave its name to the Engadine (with an imaginary etymology of "Garden of the Inn"). Downstream, the Inn flows through the Tyrol and its capital Innsbruck (whose name means "Inn Bridge") before flowing into the Danube at Passau in Bavaria. Upstream, the Inn receives a tributary, the Stillebach, which has carved out the valley leading up to the Resia Pass (Reschenpass) and the Italian Tyrol.
