Andermatt!

February 2015


Andermatt has been a popular year-round holiday and wellness resort for the last 100 years, complete with a very friendly local population. In the summer months the destination is a paradise for hikers, bikers, nature lovers and those seeking relaxation. Classic car enthusiasts can be seen on the weekends driving on the famous passes around Andermatt.

From the summer 2014, avid golfers will find an 18-hole par 72 golf course, designed by Kurt Rossknecht, just minutes from The Chedi Andermatt. Embedded perfectly into the high alpine landscape, this course will offer stunning views and the added value of high altitude, making golf balls fly further naturally.

Andermatt is surrounded by the Swiss Alps, sporting the ideal snowy conditions for wintersports enthusiasts. The valley is perfect for sports such as downhill skiing, cross country skiing, curlingand ice-skating, as the cable car in Andermatt takes skiers and snowboarders up Gemsstock Mountain to nearly 3,000 metres, a real paradise for free riders while families can enjoy skiing on the sunny slopes of Nätschen.

The Sedrun Andermatt Sports AG and renowned Swedish ski star resort operators AG Andermatt are developing the Andermatt-Sedrun ski area to openup over 120 new slopes. The new Andermatt-Sedrun ski area will include 24 constructions, two aerial tramways, a combined lift, four gondolas, eleven chair lifts and six ski lifts. Thus, the skiing will become the most extensive of its kind in central Switzerland.

In the summer months, Andermatt is a paradise for hikers, bikers, nature lovers and relaxation. Those seeking classic car adventures are spotted on the weekends driving on the famous passes around Andermatt in their shiny vintage cars. The 25 sparkling alpine lakes provide the perfect escape from the heat.
