Destination Guide: Andermatt

Blessed with an austere mountain beauty, Andermatt blends the elegance of the low-key village with the great wilderness. Located in the heart of the magnificent Swiss Alps, Andermatt is the ideal place for nature lovers and outdoor sports enthusiasts, whatever be the season it is. Andermatt is a ski resort town in the canton of Uri, Switzerland. It is situated at a crossroads in the Alps of considerable historical significance.

Before the Gotthard car and rail tunnels were completed, a major portion of the north-south traffic had to travel through this village and it’s been a very sleepy town. The town is surrounded by mountain passes and the Andermatt itself is more than 1,400 meters (almost a mile) above sea level. Driving across the Alpine Pass is a wonderful ride, and the views are spectacular. Currently, the town of Andermatt has become gloriously extravagant as a travel destination in the mainstream.

The Swiss army which previously had its base in the village has retreated and the sleepy town, as it was before had suddenly become a leading contender for one of the best holiday destinations in the world. Thanks to its high ridges and crisscrossing mountain slopes, the village of Andermatt is attracting the eyes of the hard-core Skiers all over the world.
