Schuls ("Scuol" in Romansh) is a small village located in the lower part of the valley Engadin (or "Engiadina" in Romansh) in the canton Graubünden at an elevation of 1244 meters above sea level (4081 feet). Along the always busy main street, there are new houses and modern stores and shops. However, below the main street - closer to the river - there is a more quiet old part of the village with beautifully renovated traditional houses, see pictures below.
Scuol is the terminal station of the "Rätische Bahn" (RhB) and is situated close to the Swiss national park.
