Wasserläufe der Chalzina Sura-Quelle mit roten Ablagerungen begrenzt durch schwarze Algen
Over a distance of only six kilometres, more than 20 mineral springs spring 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.
