Pro Büvetta Association

Switzerland is the water source of Europe. Four important rivers originate in this area (Rhine, Rhône, Inn, Reuss) and that determines the river landscape of the continent. Switzerland uses water as a renewable energy source for a century. The use of water goes back further in time. Mineral-rich springs on the banks of the Inn and Limmat were exploited in Ftan, Sent, Tarasp, Scuol and Baden in the nineteenth century. This was crucial for the development of tourism. The Pro Büvetta association (Verein Pro Büvetta) is creating an international water center in the Büvetta in Tarasp. The most important themes are the sea, water sources, lakes and rivers. The Büvetta is the setting for a permanent exhibition and centre of a dialogue and exchange of knowledge and experience (More information: http://pro-büvetta-tarasp.ch).
