First of all, Scuol is a political municipality in the region of Engadin Bassa/Val Müstair, the Swiss canton of Graubünden. Until 1943 the village was officially called Schuls, 1943-1970 Scuol/Schuls, since then Scuol. Correspondingly, the name Scuol comes from the Latin scopulus “cliff” and refers to the location of the church of San Geer.
Moreover, the sunny region is nestled between the Silvretta peaks and the “Engadin Dolomites”. Seems like, the holiday region has preserved its cultural values and whole nature.
Coupled with the whitewater ravines of the Inn in the summer are without a doubt one of the most spectacular rafting stretches in the Alps.
With 172 square kilometres, the region has the largest nature reserve in Switzerland and with an 80 km long network of hiking trails and nature tours.
The “Bogn Engiadina” in Scuol offers recreation and relaxation – and this in the midst of the fantastic Lower Engadine mountains. Noteworthy, you bathe in pure mineral water.
Furthermore, Engadin houses with artistic sgraffito characterise the old parts of the village. The places Büglgrond and Plaz with the mineral water fountain are also worth a visit.
For that reason, it is a kind of “hide-away” – far from the hectic life in the city. Here we can slow down.
