A mutilation of nature or an impressive artificial construction. The Gotthard can be considered as you wish. Particularly imposing are the structures of the Alpe Pesciüm, the starting point of a three day mountain hiking experience between northern Tessin and Wallis.
Tradition-steeped hotel dating back to 1917 at the foot of the Gotthard. The family run hotel managed through the years by the Forni family comprises 20 refurbished rooms with minibar, telephone, safe and ADSL, some of which with balcony in addition. Breakfast buffet, possible half or full board, free parking and garage parking at a charge as well as a conference room and restaurant with local specialities. A great location for snowshoe tours, hikes and mountain biking.
Even the Romans avoided the immense mass of the Gotthard. The Pass only gained significance around the year 1200, when the Schöllenen Ravine between Göschenen and Andermatt was developed. Today the Gotthard Pass is the most important North-South connection.
