The Bear Bath
and stories about the bear in Sulden am Ortler
Bears love to bath in the water, in the midst of nature. Very probably they know about the pleasant effects of the fresh spring and glacier water. In spring 2005 a brown bear crossed the Sulden valley for the first time after one hundred years. There are many small wild rivers which, thanks to the snow melting in spring, lead a lot of water.
A dream for every bear! So he took a nice bath surrounded by a magnificent mountain landscape. Because of the big hype around his presence, he finally settled down to Switzerland.
