The mineral water trail «curas da baiver» starts at Scuol visitor information centre and follows the paths that visitors took over a hundred years ago when doing a water cure. Right at the beginning of the old spa route to Nairs you can see the first information boards about the Chalzina and Tulai springs. The path then goes down to the river Inn and crosses to the other side. Café Büvetta Sfondraz – once a drinking hall – can be found by the next upriver bridge. If the cafe is open, you can try the water from the Sfondraz spring. Going past the nearly 150-year-old drinking hall «Büvetta Tarasp» on the opposite side and crossing another bridge, you will come to Chasa Carola in Nairs and the Carola spring. Due to a risk of falling rocks on the slope behind the Büvetta, the Lucius and Emerita springs (both of which have strong mineral concentrations) are inaccessible until further notice. Next, you will go back to the turning that leads to Vulpera and up the hiking trail. There, you will be able to see some grand old hotels and the spa gardens of Hotel Waldhaus, which burnt down. Next to the cure park, there is a small museum to discover about the hotel and the former cure tourism. The route through the forest and over the river Clemgia to Gurlaina, then over the lower lying bridge will take you to the old village area of Scuol Sot. You can then drink the Sotsass mineral water at the Plaz and Bagnera fountains. Going via the Stradun road, you will then come to the Plazzetta fountain in the part of the village known as Scuol Sura, which has water from the Vi spring. The tour ends at Scuol visitor information centre.


We recommend that you bring a bottle or cup with you so you can taste the water from the tapped springs.


The tour was evaluated under favourable weather conditions. Before starting the tour, we strongly advise you to check the current weather conditions and the forecast.
