In the summer months, the Oberalp Pass provides an important link between Central Switzerland and the Graubünden Oberland. In winter, on the other hand, the Oberalp Pass is closed to road traffic and the road itself used as a ski slope, toboggan run and hiking trail. The views it commands both down into the valley and up to the Gotthard mountains are likely to prove unforgettable. This winter hike takes you from Andermatt railway station up to Nätschen, both of whose restaurants have beautifully sunny terraces.
Andermatt - Nätschen - Andermatt
At the station, simply follow the trail signposted to the Oberalp Pass as far as Nätschen. You can return by the same route or rent a toboggan and toboggan down to Andermatt instead.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
