Sedrun

The municipality of Tujetsch/Sedrun near Disentis is situated at an altitude of 1,450 metres in the upper Surselva. Snow sport began here earlier than in the monastery village. The Tomasee lake close to the Oberalp Pass is the source of the Rhine.
The region of Tujetsch was settled in the 8th century after the founding of the Disentis Monastery. The heavily forested area was subjected to massive clearances, partly on steep slopes and this resulted in repeated avalanches. The worst disaster happened in 1749 when an avalanche buried Rueras and killed 64 people.

Tujetsch was first documented with the consecration of Sedrun Parish Church. The development of the village was closely linked to the monastery, which reigned over the municipal district. The population lived mainly in farmsteads. until the 18th century when relocation towards the valley floor began. Farming dominated the way of life until WWII: in 1939 there were still 144 farms in existence, today only around 35 remain. The water taxes accumulated by the municipality after the construction of the power station meant that infrastructure could be improved and winter tourism promoted.

Tujetsch now has over 2000 inhabitants and 5250 guest beds. Winter sport was already practiced here at the beginning of the 20th century. The ski club was founded in 1914 followed by the ski school in 1929 and the first mountain railway opened in 1956.

The Surselva region is rich in minerals, a fact which attracts mountain crystal seekers. A collection of the most beautiful and spectacular finds can be seen in the La Truaisch Museum. In addition, a dwelling from bygone days shows how a family’s daily life looked back then.

The Surselva is a superb hiking and touring region. Its attractions are enhanced by educational trails such as a flower and herb trail (Oberalp Pass to Tschamut), an ecology trail (Oberalp Pass to Canagieri) and a planet path Planetenweg (Sedrun to Disentis). The source of the Rhine lies close to the Oberalp Pass, in the scenically situated Tomasee.

Highlights

  • Snow-sport region with developed infrastructure
  • Network of hiking (200 km) and biking trails with theme trails: flower and herbs trail, ecology trail and planet path
  • Ski and mountain tours
  • Alpine transit building site (advance reservation required for visits)
