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

Besides the source of the Rhine, the monastery in Disentis is another important feature. The monastery of St. Martin, founded in the 8th century, is one of the oldest Benedictine monasteries in Europe. Built in 1712, the Baroque collegiate church with its two onion-domed towers, rich stucco work and painted ceilings is one of the most important sacred buildings in Graubünden.
