Umgebung der Funtana da Suolper mit Informationstafel
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

The Funtana da Suolper hides in the Vallatscha valley just above Tarasp. A simple spring right next to the stream brings the mineral water to the surface, which is best tasted with a cup you have brought along. The drained water forms an orange-reddish spring tufa in the stream.

Near the spring it can smell of sulphur, as the translated name "sulphur spring" also suggests.
