Andermatt is a famous holiday and winter sports resort in the middle of the Alpine region of the Swiss canton of Uri. The Andermatt holiday region at the foot of the Gotthard includes Andermatt with its approximately 1,500 inhabitants, as well as the villages of Hospental, Göschen, Gurtnellen, Realp and Wassen. All the communities in the region have historic centres and captivate with their typical alpine architecture. The name Andermatt means something like "at the mat" or "at the meadow". The village lies in the Urseren Valley on the Reuss River. The municipal area extends as far as the Oberalp Pass on the border with Canton Graubünden. Andermatt's settlement history dates back to the Stone Age.
