Luxury Chalets Andermatt

An expanding old fashioned chocolate-box resort in the Ursern Valley.

The largest of three villages in the Ursern Valley, Andermatt lies at the heart of Switzerland’s Alpine passes. Popular for weekend breaks, the resort has both charm and beauty as well as plenty of challenging skiing and ski-touring opportunities. Slow-paced and old-fashioned, Andermatt is currently in the midst of a huge redevelopment which will see the town doubling in size by 2018.

New lifts will link the resort with the high peak at Oberalp and the Sedrun ski area, making it the largest ski area in central Switzerland. In addition, a large number of luxury chalets, hotels and apartments are being built, reinventing Andermatt as an upmarket resort attracting an influx of well-heeled international visitors. Surrounded by a dramatic mountain landscape, the town runs from the central river bridge to the Gemsstock cable car with the new development built on the outskirts.

In winter Andermatt has a lively village atmosphere, brimming with activities for all ages.

Set amidst the 2,961 metre Gemsstock mountain, Andermatt is ideal for intermediate and off-piste skiers looking for serious black runs, knee-deep powder and steep terrain. The Bernhard Russi run from Gemsstock via the Gurschen Glacier to the Gerschnalp is a particular highlight for expert skiers. However, it is not all about accomplished skiers, as the expanding ski area now provides opportunities for those less experienced to improve their skills, particularly in Sedrun.

Away from the slopes, Andermatt has plenty of other activities to amuse visitors, both action-packed and relaxing. Snowshoe tours and winter hikes are a popular pastime here, taking in some of the most magnificent scenery in the Swiss Alps. Tobogganing, ice skating and romantic horse sleigh rides around the resort offer further ways to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the stunning surroundings. Andermatt also has a variety of excursions to enjoy from scenic train rides to fascinating and unique museums documenting the region's history.
