Stron spring

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 water of the Stron spring was tapped and flowed into a separate basin at the fountain of the same name. Unfortunately there is no mineral water flowing in the village of Sent for some time. In all probability it has found a new way (underground) and is therefore considered to have dried up.

The Stron spring is a good example to see how sensitive the springs react and how well known springs can disappear. Conversely, it is also possible that a new spring may suddenly emerge.
