"The River House" – the boutique hotel in Andermatt

"The River House" is a small, inviting design and lifestyle hotel at the heart of Andermatt that dates back more than 280 years. The historical wood panelling, beams and original masonry were preserved when the building was renovated. Modern elements were added to create a small gem.

The hotel's philosophy: young@heart and ecological! The approach is young, easy-going and unconventional, with hosts who are open-minded and flexible in their attitude. Ecology is a key aspect, too. The heating system runs on geothermal energy, while the food is prepared using quality regional products fresh from the market.

Stay in one of the six rooms or two suites. The hotel was renovated from the basement to the roof based on ecological criteria using natural materials such as wood, stone and Vals granite.

Bar – "Die Alt Apothek"

Enjoy an aperitif, a piece of cake or tapas at the hotel bar. Whisky lovers will find a great selection here that goes well beyond the conventional range.
