ANDERMATT

ANDERMATT - ACROSS 8 PASSES IN THE HEARTH OF SWISS ALPS

 

This peaceful town at the foot of the Gottard Massiv boasts an idyllic strategic position, at the crossroads of the biggest major Alpine artery and has eight mountain passes nearby.

 

 

Its central position makes it easily accessible both in winter and summer. In winter, the various ski resorts in the Ski Arena Andermatt-Sedrun have an extensive choice of pistes for all levels and heights.

 

The Gemsstok is a mountain for free riders and those who love steep slopes. The Natschen and Sedrun are ideal for those who love a relaxing ride with family. With over 100km of runs and well signposted trails for snowshoeing or other winter trails there is plenty to do to outdoors.

Whoever is searching for a speedy sled ride, has three slopes available. Cross-country skiers with find 28 km of pistes for the classic style and skating style in Ursental and 12km in Sedrun. 

 

In the heart of the Swiss Alps excursions, tranquillity, nature and guaranteed snowfall.

 

A multi coloured summer is offered in Andermatt. Thanks to being in the vicinity of 8 epic Alpine passes (San Gottardo, Novena, Oberalp, Furka, Grimsel, Susten, Klausen e Lucomagno), becoming the perfect starting point for a paradise of excursions, cyclists, motorbikes, families and mountain bikers.

 

We strongly recommend a visit to the Sasso San Gottardo museum where up until a few years ago, a secret Swiss army artillery was concealed here, right in the belly of the mountain.

Andermatt is a tranquil friendly town, central hub for the panoramic Swiss railway and Glacier express, still well conserved with typical buildings, perfect for those looking for peace and contact with nature.
