Quelltuff San Jon Dadaint

Show all 3 images

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.


From the mineral water trail signpost, which is located on the hiking trail towards the Lischana hut, the trail continues a bit into the forest. The main source is about 15 meters above the Lischana stream in a small area. There are other pools around it. The highlight is the brownish spring tufa a little below, which with its stair-like appearance makes the San Jon Dadaint spring something very special.

Since there is no catchment, the water cannot be tasted.


Most important components:

Hydrogen carbonate HCO3-: 325 mg/l
