The region first gained in importance with the construction of the Lukmanier and Oberalp passes. The Oberalp Pass which leads to Andermatt at the foot of the Gotthard is an ideal starting point for tours on foot or by bike – for example, to the idyllic Tomasee lake, which, among the various source tributaries, is considered as the official source of the Anterior Rhine. This is where the "Veloland Schweiz" Rhine Route begins.

As well as the source of the Rhine, the monastery in Disentis is of great importance. The monastery of St. Martin, founded in the 8th century, is one of the oldest Benedictine monasteries in Europe. The Baroque collegiate church, dating from 1712, with its two onion-domed towers and rich stucco work and painted ceilings is one of the most important sacred buildings in Grisons.

Summer

There are over 350 km of footpaths around the two resorts. As well as the walk to the source of the Rhine and the Alp Transit Tunnel path, the high alpine "Senda Sursilvana" path (about 100 km from the Oberalp Pass to Chur) is one of the highlights for hikers in the region. The 9-hole golf course in Sedrun is the only place in Switzerland where you can hit your ball over the Rhine. All over the region, sparkling treasures may come to light (search for minerals).
