The Swiss mountain village Andermatt is idyllically located in the Ursern Valley and can be easily reached in just 90 minutes from Zurich. The connection by train is also ideal, with hourly connections from Zurich that stop in Göschenen. There you have a direct connection to the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn, which will take you to Andermatt within 10 minutes.
Charming chalets and wonderful restaurants make the historic village centre an experience. Charming old houses line the main street, which runs from the central river bridge to the Gemsstock cable car. At the same time, with recent development Andermatt is one of the most modern tourist destinations in the Alps.
The gastronomy in Andermatt is diverse and ranges from a simple bar to Japanese star cuisine with Michelin awards. Some bars are waiting to be discovered by you.
The Andermatt holiday region is one of the most snow-sure ski resorts in Switzerland. Here, the diverse skiing areas of the Skiarena Andermatt-Sedrun-Disentis offer 180km of piste, a healthy mix with varying degrees of altitude and levels of difficulty. Freeriders and lovers of steep-slope descents fall for the Gemsstock, while recreational skiers and families find themselves in their element at the Nätschen and Sedrun resorts.
Andermatt+Sedrun+Disentis have taken the Swiss cross in the flag literally and turned it into a plus for the winter experience. In addition to skiing, guests can discover another plus for winter in every respect. Be it special piste highlights, a descent on the untracked freeride slopes or the wide range of culinary delights. These range from specially set up children's corners in the family restaurants to rustic pubs and sun terraces with a mountain panorama.
Board the train at every valley station. After a day of skiing, if you’re too tired to return on skis, you can comfortably board the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn - the train ticket is included in the ski ticket. If you're lucky, you can catch the Après-Ski-
Express and enjoy a drink or a tasty snack during the journey. The après-ski trains run twice a day in winter between Andermatt and Disentis.
In the Matti Kids Arena on Nätschen, the Druni Kids Arena in Sedrun and the Saxwiese in Disentis, snow rookies find their own playground. Magic carpets, practice slopes, a snow playground and the funny mascots make the first runs a pleasure. And because so much fresh winter air and romping around in the snow makes you hungry, the children's restaurant is very close by.
Especially the almost 3'000 m high Gemsstock and the Disentis area attract with great options for freeriders. From the Gemsstock, routes in all directions and numerous variants lead back into the valley. Untouched slopes with lots of powder, natural drops and jumps await experienced deep-snow fans.
A paradise for freestylers is the ACE Snowpark below the Gütsch. It is redesigned every year and offers kickers with 10 to 15 metres, boxes, special waves, rail downs, snowpark tubes and much more. There are no limits to the creativity of the freestylers on three lines with different levels of difficulty.
Two separate local ski areas serve Andermatt, both directly accessible via ski lifts from village-level base terminals at opposite ends of the resort.
The emblematic Gemsstock area is the main attraction for the resort's many expert-ability visitors: its glaciated steep upper slopes offer true black-grade pistes plus a plethora of rugged off-piste routes, together with a black-graded home-run to the village; yet it also has a novice-friendly mid-altitude sector of easy blue pistes plus a small snowpark, reached via the mid-station of the principal access cable car.
The second local ski area, Natschen, on the slopes of the Gutsch on the sunnier side of the valley, has a wider variety of pistes better suited to novices and intermediates; served by a chairlift from the village, the mid-altitude sector of the Natschen slopes is also accessible by train from Andermatt's railway station (ticket inclusive with the lift pass).
With 60 kilometres of slopes, the 3rd ski resort o the area - Disentis has enough space so that you do not lose sight of anyone. Thanks to the altitude of almost 3,000 meters, the ski season in Disentis can be enjoyed until spring.
