Andermatt has been a popular year-round holiday and wellness resort for the last 100 years, complete with a very friendly local population. In the summer months the destination is a paradise for hikers, bikers, nature lovers and those seeking relaxation. Classic car enthusiasts can be seen on the weekends driving on the famous passes around Andermatt. From the summer of 2014, avid golfers will find an 18-hole golf course, designed by Kurt Rossknecht, just minutes from The Chedi Andermatt. Embedded perfectly into the high alpine landscape, this course will offer stunning views and the added value of high altitude, making golf balls fly further naturally.
Then in the winter Andermatt becomes a snowy haven. It has two mountains around it which are used for ski slopes; Nätschen, which is on the north-east side of Andermatt, and Gemsstock, which is on the southern side of Andermatt. Andermatt's ski slopes are part of the Gotthard Oberalp Arena. Gemsstock Mountain welcomes all winter sports enthusiasts – from its Eldorado for freeriders to families enjoying the sunny slopes of Andermatt. The Sedrun Andermatt Sports AG is currently in development with renowned Swedish ski resort operators, AB Andermatt-Sedrun, to connect the Sedrun ski domain to the Andermatt resort. By 2016, 120 unique slopes will be available to visitors.
