From the PostBus stop Posta, walk toward the west and turn left next to the visitor information desk, following the road further west until you arrive in 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. Follow a slightly downhill path through the forest and along the left bank of the Inn River back onto the road to Nairs. Passing the small drinking hall, you can 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 will find yourself standing in front of the former bathhouse. The splendid building with art nouveau elements bears witness to the centre of Scuol as a spa and mineral water tourism resort at the beginning of the 20th century. Today Nairs plays an important role as a cultural centre for Swiss and international contemporary art. After traversing the underpass, the path rises slightly, first through the forest and then along the train tracks to Scuol station.
