Andermatt Overview

Andermatt is a small resort located at the junction where four alpine passes the St. Gotthard, Grimsel, Susten, and Oberalp meet at a height of 1500m. It is easily accessible from both Lucerne and Zurich, by rail or road.

The resort doesn't have the real estate of other much larger resorts, with most of the groomed pistes suited to good intermediate and expert skiers and boarders. The resort is popular with hard-core winter sports enthusiasts more interested in conditions than the apre-ski.

There are a number of cross-country trails running down the valley and some quality off-piste available for those who possess the skill to tackle the challenging terrain. Non-skiers will have little to keep them amused in winter, apart from sledding and an outdoor rink for skating.

There is a reasonable choice of accommodation, bars and coffee shops for a town of this size, and with a reaonable bit of planning most people will find somewhere to stay and a favourite place to relax or party in the evening.

skiing is on the Gemstock with spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding alpine peaks and passes. It is also a fine place for hiking in the summer.

It is the home of the Swiss Army School of Mountaineering. It is located on the outskirts of the town and runs courses for their own personel and for other armed forces from around the world.

There is also Ursern Valley Museum which is located in the town centre and has display about the local geology and minerals.
