Precious, clear water directly from the heart of the mountains: precious water flows directly from the rock into crystal-clear mountain lakes and thunderous torrents in Disentis Sedrun. It is so clean and pure that you can often drink it – whether on a walk to the source of the Rhine near Sedrun, on a mountain bike trail along a stream, or directly from a fountain in one of the charming mountain villages. The holiday region of Disentis Sedrun offers a whole host of activities relating to water and the Rhine – the source of many different adventures.
The source of the Rhine pours into the Tomasee ("Lai da Tuma") at the highest point of the Surselva (2,344 m above sea level), near the Oberalp Pass. From here, at the foot of Piz Badus, the Rhine winds its way 1,231 km to the confluence in Rotterdam. Down the Rhine from the source lies the monastic village of Disentis. Numerous pieces of gold have already been found here and visitors can still try their luck at gold panning today. The Rhine is made accessible by a good network of walking and cycling trails, while those who prefer a more sedate pace of life can cover the necessary distance with the Rhaetian Railway.
A refreshing treat for the body and soul. With its stone-faced Roman baths and relaxing sauna area, Bogn Sedrun offers a sense of well-being for both the body and soul. Unwind in the various baths, enjoy a spot of Kneipp therapy and visit the solarium, or simply relax in the sauna or treat yourself to a relaxing massage. The adventure pool is located on the lower floor and promises fun and adventure for the whole family.
Make your holiday a golden experience! According to unconfirmed information, there are more sources of gold below the holiday region of Disentis Sedrun than beneath the entire Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich. It takes the right technique, patience and plenty of luck to strike gold. The technique, at least, can be learnt from our professional gold panners.
