From the PostAuto stop Posta, head west and turn left next to the guest information office, continue along the road and you will reach Scuol Brentsch. After about 300m along the road and with a view of the Cutüraplana plain, the winter hiking trail branches off to the left. On a slightly descending path, it goes through the forest and along the left bank of the Inn back onto the road to Nairs. Passing the small drinking hall, you catch a glimpse of the "Büvetta" on the right side of the Inn, the former drinking hall, which is now closed due to the danger of falling rocks. Shortly afterwards you are in front of the former bathhouse. The magnificent building bears witness to Scuol's centre as a spa and medicinal water tourist resort at the beginning of the 20th century. Today Nairs functions as a cultural centre for Swiss and international contemporary art. After crossing the subway, the path climbs slightly, leads through the forest and then along the railway track to Scuol station.  

Author’s recommendation

It is advisable to take a few minutes in Scuol and walk through the lower village with its traditional Engadine houses.
