Within sight of Zuoz lies S-chanf. It belongs with the fractions Chapella, Susauna, and Cinuos-chel to the last or first municipality in the Upper Engadin, depending on where you come from, and is located at the entrance to the National Park. The long village, situated on the Inn River, owes its charm, on the one hand, to its intact historic village center, and on the other hand, to the Rhaeto-Romanic language, which is still spoken here.
There are very few villages that comes up against so many borders as S-chanf. At the Scalettapass, it borders on Davos, at the Sertigpass, on Bergün. The village of S-chanf is bordered by Zuoz, down the valley by Zernez, and at the back of the Chaschaunapass, the crossing to Livigno, by Italy. It is worthwhile to explore the municipal boundaries and to discover the village of 700 souls. And if you don't know how to pronounce the village name, ask someone on the spot. You'll see, with a little practice, it soon won't feel like a slip of the tongue.
