Andermatt is an ultra-exclusive and low profile resort in the heart of the Swiss Alps. The town’s plans include the construction of 42 buildings, with wooden chalets and luxury accomodations, before 2020. Skiing the two mountains, 75 miles of slopes, 18 lifts, and the town’s cobblestone streets is what makes Andermatt so special. It’s a quaint and luxurious destination for those in the know.
