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.
The Sotsass spring stands out due to a wall vault which was part of a former pavilion. The catchment of the mineral spring which emerges from the rock is located under the floor of the vault and is not open to the public. From a small fountain the water flows constantly.
