WELCOME TO ANDERMATT!
WITH BLOSSOMING PASTURES, LOVELY FRESHNESS IN SUMMER AND SNOW-BLANKETED MOUNTAINS IN WINTER, ANDERMATT EMBODIES THE SOUL OF SWITZERLAND IN A UNIQUE WAY.
Nestled within the Urseren Valley, Andermatt is surrounded by an untouched alpine countryside like no other Swiss mountain village. The expansive high-mountain valley at the foot of the Gotthard Massif with its historic Alpine passes delights visitors with ample sun and excellent water and air quality. Water plays an especially central role here – the Rhine, Reuss, Ticino and Rhone, four of Europe’s major rivers, originate in the Gotthard region, where permanent ice and glaciers cling to the mountain peaks.
“Carpe diem” in Andermatt means enjoying high Alpine skiing in the morning and, in the afternoon, swinging your club on a green in an idyllic location …

Situated at an altitude of 1,444 metres a.s.l., Andermatt has long attracted guests from every corner of the world. The Alpine Ursern Valley offers a diversified range of sport and leisure activities throughout the year.
In addition to biking, hiking and mountain climbing, the new 18-hole par 72 championship golf course is definitely the centrepiece of summer activities. Designed to strict environmental standards, it promises golfers an unforgettable and spectacular experience with nature at the highest level.
In winter, the snow-sure region is enticing for skiing, freeriding, snowshoe trekking, sledging and much more. The SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun is being expanded into the largest ski area in Central Switzerland, with over 120 kilometers of slopes.
From classical concerts to rock or schlager music to spectacular open-air theatre performances, Andermatt abounds in cultural events.
ANDERMATT SWISS ALPS
ANDERMATT SWISS ALPS IS DEVELOPING THE CHARMING MOUNTAIN VILLAGE OF ANDERMATT INTO A UNIQUE FIRST-CLASS YEAR-ROUND DESTINATION.
The customised real estate offering from a single source is supplemented by a wide range of family-friendly sporting and recreational opportunities. The breath-taking 18-hole par 72 golf course is nestled perfectly into the surrounding mountainous terrain. When finished, the new Andermatt-Sedrun ski destination, with over 120 kilometres of pistes, will be the largest ski region in Central Switzerland – with slopes for demanding as well as recreational skiers. Numerous new infrastructure elements and public facilities such as an indoor pool and new restaurants complete the overall picture. Thanks to careful planning, Andermatt Swiss Alps is well integrated into tradition-rich Andermatt and displays a typical village character, enhanced by the new car-free central zone.
The attractive mix of hotels, apartment houses and chalets offers a wide range of residential choices, from one-bedroom holiday apartments to spacious apartments to exclusive penthouses. Once complete, the resort will boast six new 4- or 5-star hotels, 490 apartments in 42 buildings and about 28 chalets. The sustainable planning concept and an uncompromising focus on quality are the best prerequisites for long-term appreciation of value, promising an attractive real estate investment.
Careful management of resources runs through the Andermatt Swiss Alps project like a golden thread. All apartments and hotels meet the MINERGIE® standard, a recognized Swiss quality label for sustainable and ecologically designed buildings with greatly reduced energy consumption. Electricity and heat are produced exclusively from renewable sources, making for CO2-neutral energy supply to all the real estate properties.
Also the re-naturalisation of the Reuss, the car-free centre of the resort and the inclusion of environmental organisations in the planning and construction of the golf course and the ski destination are in line with the concept of environmental sustainability.
