Softly Mobile Holiday in Disentis/Mustér (Switzerland)

The History of the Alps in the Heart of the Grisons Canton

A “cordial beinvegni” to our guests here in Disentis. This is a greeting in the Romansh language, which is woven tightly into our cultural identity and our ancient tradition. The Via Lucamagn to the east of the Gotthard Mountain has been a major road connecting north and south since ancient times. Disentis still remains an important junction for international train traffic as well as long-distance hiking and biking. Experience our fascinating culture, enjoy its cosy atmosphere and delight in the many activities this village has to offer! 

 

Winter days are dedicated to skiing, snowshoeing and ski touring through spectacular scenery. Hiking and mountain tours make up your summer adventures in this rugged terrain. The best way to start your trip is to board the Glacier Express and experience the Swiss mountains from inside the train. You’ll be rewarded with many breath-taking vistas of the great outdoors. At the source of the Rhine River, you will get a first-hand account of where this great river really starts. And after panning for gold for a while (maybe you’ll be lucky!!!), you can relax in one of our comfortable hotels and charming Alpine huts and delight in our culinary treats.

Premium Pearl for HIKING

Explore this beautiful pearl of the Disentis Sedrun region a step at a time. Discover the most important European watershed, which separates the rivers that empty into the North Sea from those that feed the Mediterranean Sea. This is where the Rhine is “born.” If you prefer a challenging hike or mountain tour, don’t be overwhelmed by the abundance of mountains that exceed an altitude of 3,000 m. You can also get yourself a bit of a head start by taking the cable car or Gotthard railway. This way, you’ll reach your goal slightly less sweaty, but no less excited.

Premium Pearl for MOUNTAIN BIKING

Use the mountain bike to conquer the most famous passes of the Alps. Frederick I, also known as Barbarossa, already appreciated the Lukmanier Pass as the fastest pass to connect the north with the south. All you have to do is trade in those horse hoofs for wheels and you got it. How about crossing several Alpine passes with your mountain bike? – Not a problem. Pedal as hard as you can; or let the e-bike give you a hand. And for the convenient, free way to get you, your luggage and your mountain bike back to your holiday resort, make sure you get the BikePass St. Gotthard.  Read more: Mountain Biking Disentis/Mustér
