The traditional mountain village in the heart of Switzerland. Andermatt is a place where you can breathe in the fresh alpine air and stay relaxed within a most fascinating setting.
Andermatt has become a year-round destination in recent years: apartment buildings, hotels and chalets, the seemingly Scottish 18-hole golf course, which offers golfers a welcome challenge, and the SkiArena, which is not just the most modern ski resort Switzerland but also the largest in Central Switzerland, with slopes from Andermatt to Sedrun and Disentis.
The Andermatt Concert Hall
The Andermatt Concert Hall is designed by Studio Seilern Architects led by Christina Seilern and realised by Andermatt Swiss Alps and BESIX, Belgium. Situated in a panoramic area of the village, the intimate 650-seat hall features an exceptionally flexible stage capable of incorporating a 75-piece orchestra. The acoustics and theatre design are respectively by Kahle Acoustics and dUCKS scéno – the same teams behind the Philharmonie de Paris. The London-based Studio Seilern Architects have just completed the Annenberg Centre for the Performing Arts at UK’s Wellington College. As the former Founding Director of Rafael Viñoly Architects’ London office, Seilern was the project lead for the Curve Theatre in Leicester and the Firstsite Contemporary Art Gallery in Colchester.

The hall is also available for hire as a unique location for your meeting, exhibition, conference, dinner event or even wedding. The multi-functional space is accessible by vehicles, fully designed in wood with top acoustics and with ultra-modern technical equipment. The events team would be delighted to organise your event.

Accommodation can be booked at The Chedi Andermatt and the Radisson Blu Hotel Reussen, Andermatt.
Radisson Blu Hotel Reussen, Andermatt
The 4-star conference hotel, the Radisson Blu Reussen, stands connected to the Gotthard Residences, making it directly accessible without having to step outdoors. The building is reminiscent of the grand hotels of the 19th century which were designed to protect their guests from the wind and snow of the mountains. The Radisson Blu Hotel Reussen, Andermatt comprises roughly 180 rooms and suites, a restaurant, an inviting hotel bar with open fireplace and direct access to the Andermatt Concert Hall.
The Chedi Andermatt
“Magical” – this word is often heard in descriptions of The Chedi Andermatt, perhaps because it succeeds in something very special: the 5-star deluxe hotel is one of the leading hotels in the world and is rich in contrast, never pandering to the common average but instead offering perfect harmony between extremes, between modernity and tradition, internationality and locality, alpine simplicity and urban sophistication.
