The holiday resort of Disentis, or Mustér as it is called in Rhaeto-Romanic, lies at around 1,130 metres above sea level. The most famous sight of Disentis is the Benedictine monastery, which was founded around the year 700. Thanks to its international orientation, young people from all over the world live in the mountain village. Nestling in the alpine landscape of the upper Surselva, the village lies on the young Rhine and at the foot of the Lukmanier Pass. Romansh culture shapes village life, and the official language is Romontsch Sursilvan, a Rhaeto-Romanic dialect. In the Ustarias (restaurants) you can listen to the locals at the regulars' table as they speak this fourth national language of Switzerland. The village includes countless hamlets, so that it has a huge area of over 90.75 square kilometres and a difference in altitude of 2,645 metres from the lowest to the highest point.
In summer there are countless opportunities for hiking, mountain and climbing tours or mountain bike excursions from Disentis. The surrounding passes are a challenge for racing cyclists. In winter, the well-developed Andermatt+Sedrun+Disentis ski area, the many freeride slopes and touring peaks as well as the region's well-prepared cross-country ski trails, among other things, attract snow sports enthusiasts to the mountain village.
