In the Val Sinestra gushes the Ulrich spring, which used to be used for bathing and drinking cures.

Description

Still visible today is the impressive discoloration when it overflows into the stream.

The water cannot be tasted. On the one hand there is no appropriate access and on the other hand the mineral water contains such a high arsenic content that it exceeds the permitted maximum value many times over.

Potassium K+: 73 mg/l
Calcium Ca2+: 571 mg/l
