The Scuol, Bad Tarasp-Vulpera, Sent and Ftan region is truly spoiled for sunshine. It lies cradled between the peaks of the Silvretta range and the “Engadin Dolomites”. This holiday area has retained its native cultural values and its natural surroundings intact – to the great pride of the Engadiners and the benefit of their guests.
Engadine houses with ornate sgraffito characterise the old parts of the village. The Büglgrond and Plaz squares with their mineral springs are also worth a visit. The late Gothic church of St. George with a Romanesque tower stands on a mighty rock, offering a rewarding view across Scuol and into the Swiss National Park.
14 cable railways whisk winter sports visitors up into the high Alpine ski area of Motta Naluns. Gentle pistes alternate with testing mogul fields and wide powder-covered slopes. Connoisseurs speak highly of the 12 km long “dream piste” down to Scuol or Sent, while the more daring rave about the Snow and Fun Park. With its Bogn Engiadina Scuol health and bathing centre, and the first Turkish bath in Switzerland, Scuol has developed into one of the major holiday, wellness and health destinations. Skiing and snowboarding in Engadin’s national park region Scuol Samnaun: the range of winter sport locations in Lower Engadin ranges from Minschuns (Val Müstair), which is small but special and something of an insider tip, to the family-friendly ski area of Motta Naluns (Engadin Scuol), right through to the international Silvretta Ski Arena (Samnaun/Ischgl) with over 200 kilometres of slopes.
Around the innovative holiday and spa resort of Scuol – where mineral water bubbles from the village fountain – stretches an unspoilt landscape of national-park quality. The authentic Engadin holiday villages have managed to retain their traditional identity, and are proud to show guests their rich Romansh culture. The valley may lie at the end of the railway line and far from day-tripper traffic, but it has also frequently been a pioneer of new ideas. The “Engadin Bad Scuol” health and activity baths, opened in 1993, will leave you wanting for nothing. A piece of paradise – a parcel of freedom and quality of life. Switzerland’s first Roman-Irish baths, with their bathing ritual of several hours duration and a stimulating soap-and-brush massage, constitute an attraction of a very special kind. The scenery in which the baths and sauna are set provides a magnificent view of the impressive mountains – bathing at its most enjoyable.
