Gold Rush in Disentis

New Focus for the Holiday Village

Gold Rush in Disentis

We have enhanced our offer at the Reka Holiday Village in Disentis and have made it even more child-friendly from June 2013. The Village is staging the Gold Rush theme!

Gold was once actually mined in the Anterior Rhine region and this is why we are staging the gold prospecting scene in the the Disentis Holiday Village. We appointed the production company Steiner Sarnen to undertake various structural measures and come up with ideas on adapting the Rekalino Family Programme in the Holiday Village.

Emphasis was given to re-designing the play area and the resulting adventure playground is a small gold-mining town! Key attractions are a little town with a bank, police station and town hall. There is also a mine with a real hoist tower, a gold-panning sluice and an activity area with sand and water; small children’s area with sandpit features playground equipment such as an excavator. Old and young alike can enjoy a theatre stage.

Obstacle-free Playground
Thanks to the advisory and financial support of the ‘Think of Me’ (Denk an mich) Foundation, the playground was designed and built with the special needs of children and adults with disabilities in mind. One of the highlights is a wheelchair-accessible excavator. Furthermore, eight holiday homes in the village are accessible for wheelchairs.

Another highlight is the Glockenspiel carillon on the community building terrace. It chimes for all sorts of little rituals throughout the day and in the evening provides a background for the moment when everyone joins in with the “Good Night” song together at the family meeting place.

And in front of the guesthouse facing the car park a huge golden ass welcomes children and adults alike and is sure to enthral them from the moment they arrive. The Gold Rush theme is the live wire throughout the Rekalino Family Programme, including fairy-story time for small children.
