Once upon a time, Andermatt was the underdog of the Swiss Alps. Only ski enthusiasts, hikers and locals revelled in the knowledge of this hidden gem. Its spectacular views, towering peaks and tumbling waterfalls deep within the Urseren Valley were the Swiss secrets that just kept on giving. But then, like all things that are beautiful, it wasn’t long before it was spotted, enticed and eventually catapulted onto the international stage.

Beauty in its favour, Andermatt’s significant pull was perhaps due to the closure of the Swiss Federal Army barracks. In 2003 the land owned by the Army was sold and all conscripts were removed from the town, as a result reducing significantly the population and income of Andermatt in one fell swoop. Following the news of available land and potential, this once quiet part of the Swiss Alps underwent a significant makeover, including the construction of luxury properties and hotels. Today it is one of the most talked about ski destinations in Europe and on a par with Aspen in the US. Conveniently located and easily accessible by Stuttgart and Munich, Zurich, Lucerne and Milan, Andermatt was never going to stay quiet for long.
