An Attractive Year-Round Destination
Andermatt is a charming village in the heart of the Swiss Alps that has been welcoming visitors for more than a century. This unspoilt locale embodies the essence and incomparable beauty of Switzerland, with flowering meadows in summer and snow-covered mountains in winter.
Nestled in Urserental, Andermatt is surrounded by untouched Alpine scenery. From high peaks and deep gorges, to wild waterfalls and quiet lakes, the diverse landscape of the Gotthard region is truly unique. Water plays a starring role here; four major rivers originate in the Gotthard region - the Rhine, the Rhone the Reuss and the Ticino. Guests to the resort will discover the finest air and water quality in the world - a gift from Mother Nature that has been appreciated for generations.
Adventurers can explore ice glaciers and some of the great Alpine passes. There are as many as seven mountain passes in Andermatt waiting to be conquered. These are easily accessible, close to the villas, apartments and hotels of Andermatt Swiss Alps.
Andermatt sits 1,444 meters above sea level, in the high Alpine valley of Urseren. It is home to around 1,300 residents. The destination has always been popular with international visitors, not least due to the charming, traditional village atmosphere, which appeals to young and old alike. The resort offers exciting activities, fabulous hotel accommodation and great weather in summer and winter. About 40 hotels, just as many restaurants and 16 SAC huts offer guests a warm welcome.

No Restrictions for International Property Buyers in Andermatt
By Swiss federal law, non-Swiss nationals are subject to restrictions when purchasing real estate in Switzerland. The aim of the regulations commonly known as Lex Koller is to limit the purchase of Swiss real estate by foreign investors. In particular, the acquisition of residential property is severely restricted by this legislation. International buyers must usually go through a lengthy, expensive and uncertain approval process at cantonal and municipal level in order to purchase properties.
In the case of Andermatt Swiss Alps, the situation is totally different. The entire project was given exemption from Lex Koller by a resolution agreed by the Swiss government on 21 December 2007. International investors thus are enjoying the same protection and privileges as Swiss buyers and are able to purchase and resell real estate from Andermatt Swiss Alps, with no restrictions. This exemption applies until at least 31 December 2030.
