Description

The wandering Benedictine monk from the monastery of Disentis, Father Placidus A. Spescha (1752 - 1833), mentioned the place in his description of the Tavetschertal as follows: «This 200 step wide and 400 step long lake is the basin from which the front Rhine originates. It is a beautiful area and therefore worthy to be the original source of such a river»

The source of the Rhine can be reached from the Oberalp Pass in 1.5 to 2 hours.

Four-Source Way

The first stage of the Four Springs Trail leads from the Oberalp Pass to the Vermigelhütte in the Unteralp Valley. The water that leaves the lake begins here as one of the largest rivers in Europe the 1232 km long journey to the North Sea.
