“You remember the first time you arrived in Andermatt, you come up through the narrow Schöllenen Gorge and then the landscape unfolds in front of your eyes, like a pop-up book.”
The Ursern valley has long been a crossroads for travellers, but it wasn’t until the mid-19th century that it truly blossomed into the Alpine gem it is today. During this golden era, the region became a hot spot for sophisticated jet-setters seeking to bask in the beauty of the mountains.
By the mid-20th century Andermatt had solidified its position as a must-visit destination for Europe’s skiing elite, thanks to its long seasons, abundant powder and endless off-piste opportunities. This once-traditional Swiss village had transformed into a beacon of glamour and adventure, drawing in snow-sport enthusiasts from around the world.
Today, Andermatt is taking its rightful place at the top table of Europe’s leading Alpine destinations.
