Most Andermatt Swiss Alps businesses can be accessed by people with mobility limitations. All information about any hurdles and how to overcome them can be found in the respective entries on our website and on the Ginto app, the accessibility platform to join in.
Andermatt Swiss Alps
Andermatt Swiss Alps’ hotels and holiday apartments were built in accordance with the latest standards and have lifts and ramps where necessary. The Chedi Andermatt and Radisson Blu Reussen hotels have wheelchair-accessible rooms, and at The Chedi Andermatt, also the spa area is barrier-free. All restaurants of the Andermatt Swiss Alps Group that are located in the valley provide barrier-free access and have wheelchair-accessible bathrooms. Some of the restaurants on the mountains are not barrier-free. For accessibility data, please visit the detail pages under “Information” or look for the OK:GO logo.
The Gütsch-Express and Schneehüenerstock-Express gondolas are outfitted for people with mobility limitations. The chairlifts and the Gemsstock gondola do not provide barrier-free access.
People with disabilities ride at a discount, and the identity card for travellers with a disability is valid for single trips and day passes. Companions thus ride at no charge. Reduced-fare tickets must be purchased at a ticket booth.
Gütsch-Express gondola: Nätschen and Gütsch
The Gütsch-Express will bring you to the Nätschen mid-station at about 1,800 metres above sea level or to the Gütsch mountain station at 2,300 metres. At Nätschen, stop in at the Matti family restaurant for a break. On Gütsch, you’ll find exclusive gourmet dining with a view at the multiple award-winning restaurants The Japanese by The Chedi Andermatt and Gütsch by Markus Neff.
Schneehüenerstock-Express gondola: Platte and Schneehüenerstock
The Schneehüenerstock-Express will bring you to the Platte mid-station at 2,400 metres above sea level and to the Schneehüenerstock mountain station with the eponymous panorama restaurant at nearly 2,600 metres. A hiking trail leads from the mid-station to the Gütsch-Express mountain station. The hiking trail (gravel) is wide, about 3.5 kilometres long, and can be navigated with prams and wheelchairs. The trail descends about 170 metres in elevation over the first 500 metres and then is relatively flat.
The Andermatt Swiss Alps Golf Course is an alpine golf course with a wide range of soil types. For golfers in wheelchairs, the course is not completely accessible on their own due to the sometimes significant inclines and steep transitions from paths to fairways. The steepest gradient – about 14o – is at the 13th and 14th holes. The registration desk will be happy to advise golfers about the various options for playing at the course by email or calling +41 41 888 74 47.
Andermatt Swiss Alps puts on numerous events in Piazza Gottardo and at the Andermatt Concert Hall and The Chedi Andermatt, where concerts, comedy evenings, film screenings, conventions, etc. take place on a regular basis. All of these venues provide barrier-free access. If you would like to organise your own barrier-free event, the Andermatt Concert Hall, the Radisson Blu Hotel Reussen and The Chedi Andermatt offer the right infrastructure.
The Andermatt Swiss Alps Group supports the initiative OK:GO, which seeks to promote the availability of information about the accessibility of tourism offerings for all of Switzerland. Information should be uniform, up to date, and easily retrievable by all. You can find accessibility information for the businesses of the Andermatt Swiss Alps Group on the individual subpages under “Information” and where you see the OK:GO logo. The app for the Ginto accessibility platform provides an overview of all accessibility data for the region.
