"Of all the places I know, this is the dearest and most interesting to me", declared Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, when he travelled through the Ursern valley three times in 1779. The Ursern valley (canton Uri) at the foot of the Gotthard Pass is one of the most impressive upland valleys in Switzerland. Andermatt (1440 m), the largest of the three villages in the valley, is at the crossroads of the mountain passes from north to south and from east to west. 
The Gotthard area is Europe’s “moated castle”. Over 40 lakes, large and small, glisten like pearls around the Ursern valley – crystal clear, ice cold and rich in fish. The major rivers of the Rhine, Rhone, Reuss and Tessin (tributary of the Po) all rise in the Gotthard massif. There is a 60 km long themed footpath in the Göscheneralp valley, dedicated to the subject of “Worlds of Water”.

Andermatt is one of the best winter sports centres in Switzerland for guaranteed snow. A cable-car takes skiers and snowboarders in two stages up to the skiing area on the Gemsstock, at nearly 3000 m. The wide open slopes are ideal for experienced skiers, snowboarders and fans of deep snow. There are easier slopes near the Gurschenalp and in the skiing areas of Nätschen (Andermatt) and Realp. With the winter sports pass for the Gotthard-Oberalp region, you can also use the ski area of Sedrun. The "Urserntal" cross-country track (40 km) goes along the River Reuss through fantastic scenery from Andermatt via Hospental to Realp and back.
