The village of Scuol in the Engadine region of eastern Switzerland lives on water!

First mentioned in 1178, this village of 2,500 speaks the 4th Swiss national language, Rumansch. It’s just a stone’s throw from Italy and Austria.

Scuol’s life and existence revolves around water. There are 20 free fountains in the village, offering a variety of naturally-effervescent mineral waters.

This is a year-round, cheerful, tradition-minded family-friendly resort offering classic snow sports in the winter (80 km of downhill and 50 km of cross-country skiing), and walking, hiking, biking, and hang-gliding in the summer. The Swiss National Park is close by.

The centerpiece of Scuol and the neighboring villages is the Bogn Spa Center, a complex of various pools and related facilities – a perfect place to rid yourself of everyday stress. Wellness is the watchword. But there is also a medical facility, where those with rheumatic ailments, or accident victims, will find a full range of recognized therapies.

Scuol is a terminal station of the Rhaetian Railway, which is worth the trip in itself, just to see and enjoy the outstanding scenery.
