Tradition and Culture
From its dramatically high peaks to its notoriously deep gorges, plus Zen calm mountain lakes and wildly cascading waterfalls, the Gotthard region offers enticing scenery for those who wish to soak it up from afar, trek through its dramatic terrain or board the famous Glacier-Express railway connecting Zermatt and St. Moritz that boards and disembarks in Andermatt. This full-service train ride offers panoramic views of the Alps and valleys as well as gourmet dining on board. Water too plays a starring role here with the Rhine, the Rhone, the Reuss and the Ticino Rivers originating around us at The Chedi Andermatt. Thrill seekers may traipse across our seven nearby mountain passes and Schöllenenschlucht – a gorge so notorious that according to legend, a bridge could only be built across with the devil’s help.
