Rhine Spring - Tomasee

Rheinquelle - Tomasee


The wandering Benedictine monk of the monastery Of Disentis, Father Placidus A. Spescha (1752 - 1833), mentioned the place in his description of the Tavetschert al 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.
