Engadin Scuol

The Engadin village with a difference


Tarasp is located on the other side of the valley, at the foot of Piz Pisoc. It consists of ten separate settlements, making it unlike any other village in Lower Engadin. Not only that, its architecture, landscape and religious confessions are also different to those of its neighbours. Built in 1040, the iconic Tarasp Castle dominates the image of Lower Engadin and the history of this former Austrian enclave just as much as the region’s most powerful healing mineral water springs. The immediate proximity to the distinctive 3,000-metre-high mountains, access to the national park, the picturesque Lake Nair, the Clemgia gorge or the impressive Val Plavna are other great reasons to visit the other side of the valley.

Tarasp Castle

As a landmark of the Lower Engadine, the Tarasp Castle, built in 1040, overlooks the region majestically. Since 30 March 2016 the world-famous Engadine artist Not Vital has been the new owner of Castle Tarasp. His vision is to develop Tarasp Castle into a cultural attraction of national and international importance with contemporary art, a sculpture park and rooms that are still open to the public.
