Over the past few years, Andermatt has developed once again into a year-round destination, with apartment buildings, hotels and chalets, the Scottish-flavoured 18-hole golf course, which presents golfers with a welcome challenge, and the SkiArena, which is not only the most modern ski resort in Switzerland but also the largest in Central Switzerland, with slopes from Andermatt to Sedrun and Disentis. The 5-star deluxe hotel The Chedi Andermatt exudes special magic with its perfect combination of alpine simplicity and urban sophistication. More apartment buildings and hotels will be built during the next few years.
However, the Swiss federal government ruled to exempt Andermatt Swiss Alps from this law and to allow foreign buyers to purchase apartments and houses from Andermatt Swiss Alps without special permission or restrictions and to sell them again without any minimum holding periods.
In addition, all holiday apartments of Andermatt Swiss Alps are exempt from the Swiss Second Home Law, which restricts the construction of second homes to 20 per cent of the number of residences in a village.
