The mineral water trail «bügl e funtana», which leads to springs with their own fountains, starts at the Scuol-Tarasp railway station, from which it heads towards the Trü sports facilities. Next, you come to the first typical Engadin houses – and just like that, you are in the old part of the village of Scuol above the Stradun. Here, you will find the village fountain Plazzetta, where you can taste your first mineral water of the tour. After tasting the water of the Vi spring, you will continue on the cobblestones to the Clozza stream. The mineral water trail then crosses the stream and goes up to and past the hospital. At a fork in the road, you take the path to Sent, and soon you come to another fork and then go right again. There, you will come across the Sotsass spring and its pretty little square. From there, the mineral water trail goes back to the hospital and then goes upwards. It leads into the Clozza Gorge and in between rocks, where the path is partly exposed. When you reach the stream below, you will find a fixture with a lid. The Clozza spring is under there. Feel free to open the lid and press the light switch. You can taste the water further down at the «Squirrel Fountain» (Bügl da Squilat). Once you have fortified yourself with the Clozza spring water, you will continue on past the retirement home to the Vi spring in the new part of the village of Scuol. This spring, whose water contains iron, is located near Quartierstrasse (the district road). The route then goes back to the train station. Just before the station, you can see the Chalzina Sura spring in its natural state.

Author’s recommendation

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