Informationstafel der Ulrichsquelle
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.


In the Sinestra valley, the Ulrich spring rises, which was formerly used for bathing and drinking cures. 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.


Most important components:

Sodium Na+: 1063 mg/l
Potassium K+: 73 mg/l
Calcium Ca2+: 571 mg/l
Magnesium Mg2+: 102 mg/l
Iron Fe2+: 10 mg/l
Arsenic As: 3.58 mg/l

Chloride Cl-: 858 mg/l
Hydrogen carbonate HCO3-: 3130 mg/l
Sulphate SO42-: 344 mg/l
