Getting around

Dis­cov­er An­der­matt and the re­gion on foot or on wheels

It’s easy to discover Andermatt’s immediate surroundings on foot, by bicycle, or, during the winter, with good shoes or snow shoes. But you have other options, too.

By bus or coach

In winter, the free village bus will bring you to the valley stations of the Gütsch Express and the Gemsstock lift, the railway station, and outlying districts, as well as to Hospental.

In summer, PostBus operates several coaches that depart from the Andermatt railway station and travel across the various passes in the region.

By train

The Matterhorn Gotthard Railway operates year-round. From Andermatt, you can easily travel as far as the canton of Grisons or to Goms in Valais. Even Lucerne and Ticino are not far away and can be reached with just one change of trains.

By bike

You’ll need a bit of physical strength, but you’ll find a variety of routes around Andermatt, each with its own challenges. You can also explore the high valley by bike – it's mostly flat.

On foot

Distances in and around Andermatt are short. That means it’s very easy to explore the immediate surroundings on foot. Discover the trails along the banks of the Furkareuss or Unteralpreuss rivers or take a walk through the historic village quarter of Andermatt.

By car or mo­tor­cy­cle

In summer, take a journey over one of the numerous passes around Andermatt. You can quickly reach Ticino, Valais, Grisons, or Lucerne. If you’re looking for a less winding route, take the Gotthard Tunnel, and after just a 30-minute drive, you’ll be enjoying the italianità of the sunny south.
