Rhein-Reuss-Rhôneweg: Disentis - Oberalppass
Show all 8 images
The Rhine-Reuss-Rhône Way connects the Graubünden Surselva to the vicinity of Lake Geneva. From the beginning in Disentis over the passes Oberalp and Furka to the Valais Goms we are on the way in the mountains at over 1000 m.
At the end of the 17th century, Disentis Abbey was the first work of Caspar Moosbrugger, who later built Einsiedeln Abbey. A perfectly staged opulent Baroque with numerous altars, a large organ and Art Nouveau ceiling paintings set in stucco praise heaven on earth to the faithful.
Through well-kept hay meadows and small pretty hamlets with chapels, where the pilgrim saint James was commemorated again and again in details, it goes on the Way of St. James into the partly wooded narrow valley to Sedrun. Here the Graubünden Way of St. James turns north to Lake Lucerne. Gom's star carver Johann Ritz worked on the altars of the Vigilius Church. We change the Rhine side for a short time and walk through the middle of the golf course to Tschamut. Elevated on the sunny slope we reach the Oberalp Pass along the railway line. The lighthouse, at the nearby source of the Rhine, welcomes us to a well-deserved night's rest on the pass, e.g. in the Gasthof Piz Calmot
The Oberalp Pass is closed to hikers in winter! However, it can be reached with the Matterhorn-Gottthard-Bahn (MGB). We walk parallel to the railway. Every 3 km we can get on or off at a train station.
For the overnight stay on the Oberalp Pass we have suggested an accommodation, but there are also some others. However, it is important to make a reservation, otherwise it could be a cold night.
