At various village fountains, Scuoler mineral water can be drunk free of charge directly from the tap. It is no coincidence that the saying used to go: "In the village of Scuol, every cow drinks sour water late and early.
From the village fountain with the wooden figure on the well stick flows the water of the Sotsass spring. The right well basin has an orange-reddish color of the minerals that the water carries.


Author's tip

The Sotsass spring can be visited with a walk of about half an hour from the village fountain.
