Andeer is a municipality in the Viamala Region in the Swiss canton of Graubünden. In 2009 Clugin and Pignia merged into Andeer.HistoryRoman coins discovered near Andeer indicate that there was a Roman presence in the area during the time of the Roman province of Raetia (from 15 BC). The name of the settlement was presumably Lapidaria, and it would have already been an important stop on the road from Italy.Andeer is first mentioned in 1208 as Anders.Around 1820, roads were built over the Splügen Pass und the San Bernardino Pass. When the railroad tunnels through the Alps were completed near the end of the 19th century, they greatly reduced traffic through the region. Since the opening of the San Bernardino road tunnel (A 13) in 1967, Andeer has once again been on a major thoroughfare.GeographyAndeer has an area, of 30.5km2. Of this area, 28.9% is used for agricultural purposes, while 48.5% is forested. Of the rest of the land, 3% is settled (buildings or roads) and the remainder (19.6%) is non-productive (rivers, glaciers or mountains).Before 2017, the municipality was located in the Schams sub-district, of the Hinterrhein district, after 2017 it was part of the Viamala Region. It consists of the linear village of Andeer and the ruins of Bärenburg castle. Andeer lies in the Schams valley (in Romansch: Val Schons) on the Hinterrhein.Andeer is in Canton of Graubunden.
