Quelltuff der Sfondraz-Quelle – Café Büvetta Sfondraz
The Sfondraz spring is located in the Büvetta Sfondraz drinking hall, where it is also captured.

Description

The Büvetta Sfondraz, which is much smaller and about 100 years younger than the Büvetta Tarasp drinking hall – is a simple building that blends beautifully into the forest landscape on the river bank. It was closed for a long time, but for some years now it has been used as a garden café in the summer. The sediments at the overflow of the Sfondraz spring stand out for their intense red colours.

In the Büvetta, the water from the Sfondraz spring can be drunk during opening hours.
