The Inn is a river in Switzerland, Austria and Germany. It is a right tributary of the Danube and is 517 kilometres long. The highest point of its drainage basin is the summit of Piz Bernina, at 4,049 metres . The Engadine, the valley of the En, is the only Swiss valley from which its waters ends in the Black Sea .
The source is located in the Swiss Alps, west of St. Moritz in the Engadine region, which is named after the river . Shortly after it leaves its source, the Inn flows through the largest lakes on its course, Lake Sils and Lake Silvaplana. It runs north-eastwards, entering Austria, and from Landeck eastwards through the Austrian state of Tyrol and its capital, Innsbruck , and crosses the border into Bavaria near Kufstein.
