Mompé Medel

It is not Klaus or Claus who gives the lake its name. Claus means fenced meadow. Where until a few years ago there was a meadow, there is now a bathing lake. T2

At the train stop in Acla da Fontauna we start our hike towards the church Sontga Gada. We are on the historic pass route to Lukmanier, which used to lead via Mompé Medel. In Cuflons we cross the Rhine on a bridge whose foundations date back to Roman times. From the depths of the valley we hike up to Mompé Medel - it is rumored that from here you have the most beautiful view of the monastery village of Disentis.

After Mompé Medel follows a descent, again near the Rhine, past a pretty little lake in Mises las Cavorgias and through a shady forest to Cavorgia. The chapel Sogn Leci presents itself to us as a great photo motif and we sit down briefly on the wall before we reach our goal. The Lag da Claus is, so to speak, a "gift" or a "reward" for years of endurance during the turbulent construction period of the NEAT Base Tunnel. From a gravel landfill a wonderful landscape with a bathing lake has emerged, which delights guests and locals alike.

Now into the cool water! A swim, a nap on the wooden loungers and then on the terrace, where the nice landlady serves us a fine snack.

Sedrun train station is another 20 minutes away.


Four times a day there is a local bus in the summer, if you don't want to hike the last part to Sedrun


Everything you need for bathing. Umbrellas can be rented.


From the Acla da Fontauna train station, we follow the hiking trail to Mompé Medel. At the upper end of the village, the route leads a bit along a road, towards Cavorgia and Sedrun. Later, a hiking trail branches off to the right down to the Rhine. We reach a road, which we follow to the left until Cavorgia. At the crossroads in Cavorgia we turn right towards Sedrun. The lake is located directly on the access road to Sedrun.
