The secluded village has been a popular travel destination for people who seek for a fascinating escape to nature, especially for those who love skiing. So, what does this Switzerland village have to offer?
Gorgeous Village Like No Other
Andermatt is located in Urseren Valley, Gotthard Pass, Switzerland. So, expect such beautiful view of mountains covering your horizon (Prepare to be refreshed!). Andermatt is one of the three villages located there and also the biggest one. Although it’s named as “The biggest one”, Andermatt isn’t really big or small at the same time. You can say that it’s a small village with wooden old-style European houses with enough crowds and facilities (Such as hotels, museum, and restaurants). Perfect!
Heaven for Skiing
Andermatt is an amazing travel destination for both summer and winter. But when it comes to winter, Andermatt offers an extraordinary skiing experience. Skiing down from 2,961 meters above the sea level in Gemsstock Mountain is surely unforgettable. The route may not be too comfortable if you’re a ski newbie.
