Our village wells have always had a central importance for life in the Engadine villages - be it as a water supplier, cattle watering place or meeting point. In addition to clear spring water, many of these wells also carry one of the region's various natural mineral waters. So it's high time to get to know them from a different perspective during a well bath.

Also for those who prefer to shower hot.

Autumn bathing fun

Autumn is bath time – but not only in the bathtub at home, but also in the mineral water fountain in the historic village of Scuol Sot. With a mulled wine in one hand and a glass of natural mineral water in the other, it's wonderful to relax with like-minded people. For all those who like it a little warmer than 4°C, we heat part of the fountain to a pleasant bathing temperature. Naturally, this is done with renewable resources. 

Where: Plaz village fountain, Scuol sot

When: 27 October 2023, from 4 p.m. to approx. 8 p.m.

What to bring:  Bath towel, good mood, something to talk about.

Price: Free participation. Drinks and food at Cafè Ajüz are not included.

Your offer

Brunnenbad Herbst
Recharge your batteries in natural mineral water

Start with a relaxing bath in the warm water pool and get to know your fellow bathers. You can end the alternating bath by jumping into the cold unheated part of the fountain. In addition to clear spring water, the fountain also carries one of the region's various natural mineral waters: Sotsass mineral spring water.

Mulled wine and harmonious music

Enjoy the fountain bath with a glass of mulled wine or a fruit punch, from Cafè Ajüz and an outdoor concert with local musicians.

Brunnenbad Herbst
For the sake of health

The change in temperature leads to a widening and narrowing of our blood vessels: as a result, a large amount of blood is suddenly pumped towards the heart, blood pressure rises and circulation is stimulated. Alternating baths also train our vascular muscles and have a positive effect on the immune system.

The water bubbles refreshingly cool from the village wells. But where does this precious commodity come from and what are the tasks of a well master?
