Andermatt —
the Alpine paradise

In the heart of Europe’s Alpine region and surrounded by breathtaking mountains and valleys, Andermatt is perfectly situated in idyllic mountain scenery. Hardly any other location in Switzerland combines traditional Region values so uniquely with the vision of a luxury, state-of-the-art holiday destination. Welcome to Andermatt.

Central location

Europe and Switzerland

Switzerland is centrally located on Europe’s map and combines different cultures with nature’s diversity in a single country. Experience the historical cities, Mediterranean lakes and vistas, Alpine mountain regions and a flourishing economy with independent currency.

Switzerland

Fine chocolate and superior quality

Europe’s geographical centre is famous for fine chocolate and delicious cheese, and also for romantic mountains, superior quality and the stability of its economy.

Region

Gotthard and tradition

Andermatt is in the Canton of Uri, one of the founding cantons of the Swiss Confederation. Timeless values still count today in the Gotthard region. The locals feel the same affinity for nature and mountain traditions today as they did in the past.

Andermatt

Between two worlds

The Alpine oasis nestles in unspoiled mountain scenery. Its central north-south location puts Milan just two hours and Zurich an hour and a half away.

Back in time
from mountain valley to travel hub

Andermatt’s history is marked by myths and legends, as well as economic highs and lows. Since the construction of ‘Devil’s Bridge’ in Schöllenen Gorge, Andermatt has been a pivotal communications hub for travel on the north-south axis, as well as on the east-west axis.

Its first heyday followed the building of the Gotthard railway tunnel in 1882. Shortly afterwards, interest in Andermatt peaked for a whole century when the location was a strategically vital area for Swiss national defence. Andermatt’s third important era has already commenced – with the Andermatt Swiss Alps Project.

‘Devil’s Bridge’

Gateway to the south

The fast-flowing River Reuss was always a virtually insurmountable barrier on the journey over the Gotthard Pass. The first bridge in Schöllenen Gorge was built in 1200. According to local legend, this bridge was the devil’s work. Yet because the local people evaded their promise to pay a toll, the devil supposedly cast a giant stone towards the bridge. But he missed and the 220-tonne stone is still visible today near Göschenen.
‘Devil’s Bridge’

The spa resort

A decade of hotel hospitality

The accessible road over the Gotthard Pass and post stagecoaches made Andermatt a 19th-century travel hub between the Cantons of Uri and Ticino. The Hotel Bellevue opened for guests in 1872, heralding the rise of Andermatt as an Alpine tourist destination. For the next 10 years, visitors breathed healthy mountain air and relaxed in luxurious surroundings. This idyllic era was brief. The opening of the Gotthard tunnel in 1882 meant the town was bypassed and the tourists stayed away. The period of decline was short-lived, however. In 1885, the military training facility established the town as the focal point for national defences, influencing the Andermatt region for the next 100 years.
The spa resort

The ski location

Joining the pioneers

In 1937, Andermatt became one of the first Alpine regions in Switzerland to introduce a ski lift. The chairlift ascended from Nätschen to Stöckli Mountain. Local skier Bernhard Russi’s Olympic victory in 1972 in Sapporo made Andermatt an internationally famous skiing region. Expanding the SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun will open up new dimensions for snow sports enthusiasts.
The ski location

The dam

A flooded valley

The biggest threat to the Andermatt region was the idea of constructing a large dam to generate power in the Urseren Valley. The population rejected this idea twice (in 1920 and 1946), successfully blocking this major project. The valley would have been flooded on an immense scale – today, the entire Andermatt valley would be covered in water as far as the city of Realp. Marmorera Dam is an example of what the Gotthard region has been spared.
The dam

James Bond

Three minutes of fame

Andermatt achieved international fame as a film location in ‘Goldfinger’, probably the best-known James Bond movie starring Sean Connery. The scene lasted just three minutes – James Bond stops at a petrol station to let Bond girl Tania Mallet climb into his Aston Martin and drive over the Alpine Pass.

The Project

Samih Sawiris and Andermatt

After the Gotthard military site was closed, the search began for a new use for this unique area in and around Andermatt. It was a blessing to get the consultancy expertise of Egyptian businessman Samih Sawiris. His track record in developing sustainable year-round tourist destinations set things in motion. After the preliminary proposals and planning, the necessary changes to the resort’s location plans were firmly endorsed by the local municipal council in 2007.
The Project

The foundation stone

Andermatt Swiss Alps

The vision becomes a reality: on 31 August 2010, when the official ceremony was held laying the foundation stone of the 5-star superior luxury hotel The Chedi Andermatt. Building started on the first villa and various apartments. On 6 December 2013, the time arrived for a glittering reception to launch the landmark of the Andermatt Swiss Alps development – The Chedi Andermatt. Progress continues in leaps and bounds. The indoor swimming pool, more hotels, apartment buildings and villas, as well as the expansion of the SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun, are being planned or constructed. The 18-hole championship golf course completed in 2013 already attracts enthusiastic guests to the Urseren Valley.

On which the everlasting lakes repose
That from the streams of heaven itself are fed
There to the German soil you bid farewell
And thence, with rapid course, another stream
Leads you to Italy, your promised land»

Andermatt Swiss Alps Development
Reach for the stars

The Andermatt Vision is for six 4 to 5-star hotels in the years ahead, as well as several hundred holiday apartments and a wide selection of leisure facilities. In 2014, approval was obtained to expand the SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun, starting in 2015. The 18-hole championship golf course , finished in 2013 and due to open to the public in 2016, is another key to the success of this project.

The vision

Andermatt in future

A new world is being created in the traditional village centre and on the Podium (the former military site). Perfectly integrated into the existing village and the spectacular scenery, Andermatt embodies the traditional and the modern. In the future, this holiday resort will be a leading centre of Swiss Alpine tourism along with St. Moritz and Gstaad.

SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun

Out and about on the slopes

The SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun is undergoing modernization and expansion until winter 2017/2018. The target is to link the ski regions of Sedrun and Andermatt. The largest ski region in Central Switzerland will then have over 120 kilometres of ski slopes, 24 lifts and become one of the most attractive destinations in Switzerland thanks to its versatility and reliable snowfall.

Andermatt golf course

Golfing in the mountain range

The backdrop is spectacular. At the heart of the majestic natural landscape, a golf course conceived to international tournament standards has been developed. The 72-par championship course has grounds extending over six kilometres – golf pros and amateurs are captivated! The course is already open to hotel guests and owners of Residences.

The ASA project
– step by step

Andermatt, the dream destination, is being created in several phases and
partial projects in the village centre and at the new resort.

Village centre

Tradition meets luxury

Construction of the flagship for the ambitious project, the Chedi Andermatt, began in 2010 on the premises of the former luxury hotel Bellevue in the historic village centre. Thoughtful architectural designs ensure the hotel and its
integral Residences harmoniously integrate into the existing village street scene. Since the start of the project, several of the total 42 apartment buildings have been completed in the completely new part of the village.
Village centre Village centre

Podium

The Resort

The majority of planned buildings will be located on the former military training site. Step by step, the village of Andermatt will be expanded here, thus creating a carefully planned holiday quarter –
the Resort. More than 30 architects submitted designs based on the harmonious ‘Alpine chic’ scheme for this brand-new, pedestrian-only district.
Podium Podium

Hotels

The Chedi and more

Andermatt celebrated the opening of the first Alpine hotel, The Chedi Andermatt, in the first half of 2014. Five further 4 and 5-star hotels are planned. The next milestone
will be the opening of the prestigious 4-star Radisson Blu Hotel, which will also have a conference centre.

Andermatt Swiss Alps
The initiators

Following the initial concept design phase, the unique project was planned and realized with the expertise of Samih Sawiris of holiday resort specialist Orascom Development Holding AG and Andermatt Swiss Alps AG.

first-image first-image second-image second-image third-image third-image

Samih Sawiris

Innovative urban planner 

The owner of Orascom Hotels and Development is the creative innovator behind Andermatt as the tourist destination of the future. As a highly sought-after consultant, Sawiris assumed responsibility for planning and implementing Andermatt Swiss Alps.

Samih Sawiris was raised in Cairo and studied in Germany. After graduating in economic engineering from the Technical University, Berlin, he joined Orascom group, originally founded by his father. He specialised in building development and as CEO also founded Orascom Hotels and Development. He develops successful tourist centres and large-scale residential projects.

after completing his studies as an industrial engineer at the TU in Berlin, he founded his first company, the National Marine Boat Factory. Just a few years later, Samih Sawiris began the development of El Gouna, the first destination of what is now Orascom Development Holding AG. El Gouna, which was developed more than 20 years ago, has approx. 22,000 permanent residents and is therefore the oldest and largest destination of the Orascom Development Holding company.

Orascom

Business enterprise number one

Egyptian group Orascom – originally specializing in construction projects – is now a versatile company integrating building, telecommunications and the hotel and tourism sectors.

Onsi Sawiris founded Orascom as a construction company more than 40 years ago and later passed it on to his three sons. Orascom Hotels and Development AG (OHD) with head offices in Altdorf develops large-scale tourism projects and integrated holiday resorts.

OHD caused a sensation in Switzerland with the Andermatt Swiss Alps Project. An Alpine tourism project on this scale is unique, even for OHD owner Samih Sawiris. His largest project – El Gouna, a holiday resort on the Red Sea that now has more than 15,000 residents – was carried out in the early 1990s.

Andermatt Swiss Alps

Developer for Andermatt

The limited liability company set up exclusively for the project develops and realizes the Andermatt Swiss Alps Project in close cooperation with residents, environmental associations, the Swiss Heritage Society, tourism organisations and the authorities.

Andermatt Swiss Alps AG is responsible for the development, planning, realization and operation of the new integrated holiday destination in the Swiss mountain village of Andermatt.

 

Today, the company with head offices in Altdorf, Canton of Uri, employs approximately 50 employees. Together with Orascom Development Holding AG, the objective is to create new employment in cooperation with local and regional companies and to ensure sustainable value creation in the local area. The focus is the expansion of the mountain village.
