Whey Bath

After the previous post I couldn’t help but Google with the search term “Bath with a view” and find this Scuol Tarasp Warm Whey Bath.

Like Cleopatra’s usual practice:

An experiences you will one day tell your grandchildren about: Sitting in a wooden tub, high up in the mountains, while the soothing warmth of whey water with a temperature of 38° Celsius runs over your body? Relaxed and happy you will not only enjoy this bath under the sky but also the surrounding panoramic views. Isn’t this prospect truly heart warming? Don’t you agree?

The whole experience is salubrious, too: The whey water, rich in lactic acid, is a time-tested natural remedy. It softens the skin, regenerates and protects it. It also relieves allergies and certain skin conditions.

One or two persons can spend 30 minutes or longer in this unusual bath. But please note: Whey is a valuable by-product of cheese production. Because every day cheese is freshly produced on this Alp, only 1 whey bath per day can be offered. Early reservations are absolutely necessary.
The price per bath is CHF 40.–.
Plan on a 1 1/2 hour hike from Tarasp to the Alp.
