Attraction Disentis Sedrun


Steinmänner halten Wache


In the middle age, the mules with their small cattle and pilgrims have already crossed this pass and some have died in the process.

The Disentis monk Placidus a Spescha (1752 - 1833) was a passionate alpinist and hiker. Like no other, he researched and described the Alpine world, collected plants and minerals and made sketches and maps. In 1812, a journey led him over the "Krüzli mountain through the Kärschela and Rheus valleys to Einsiedeln and back again". He was probably the only one far and wide who climbed over the Krüzli Pass at the beginning of October 1812. The mountain pass, Spescha later noted, had unfortunately remained unknown to the strangers "despite the many mountain travelers". It is worth the effort to "get to know this Alpthal better; because it is just as strange in its nature as any other Alpthal. Yes, the peculiar changes in the rocks, the high mountains, the large and varied splashes and the beautiful waterfalls that you will find in them still give some preference over others."


Since a rock fall in 2016, the pass has only been accessible from Sedrun via Alp Caschlé. (as of September 2021) The Camino de Santiago No. 43 is newly signposted and leads through the Val Milar.
