Fountain Scuol

Squirrel Fountain

At various village fountains the Scuol mineral water can be drunk free of charge directly from the tap.It is no coincidence that in the past it was said that in the village of Scuol every cow drinks sour water from morning to night.


How the fountain came to squirrel is unclear. But it gives the fountain its name, also in Romansh: Bügl da Squilat. At the fountain flows the mineral water of the Clozza spring, which rises a little further up in the Clozza gorge. A viewing window allows you to look directly into the spring.


Author's tip

The short walk from the village fountain to the Clozza spring allows you to be in the middle of nature in a very short time from the village.
