Over a distance of only six kilometres, over 20 mineral springs are located up on both sides of the Inn in Scuol and the surrounding area. The mineral springs are open to the public and most mineral waters can be tasted.

Description

This spring is located on the right side of the Inn between Ardez and Scuol and can be reached on foot over a bridge from the Engadinerstrasse. The overflow, over which the mineral water flows into the Inn, is clearly visible. Over time, a large tufa of a remarkable reddish colour has formed from the sediments.
