Andermatt Celebrates The Chedi Andermatt and Apartment House Milestones

The time has finally arrived. We’ve been counting down to The Chedi Andermatt opening since the first foundation was laid, and now we’re pleased to announce that booking for winter season 2013/14 has now opened. Guests will be able to stay at this landmark hotel from 6th December 2013, definitely a date to put in the diary!

In addition to celebrating this milestone for The Chedi Andermatt we also recently hosted a number of guests over three days, as we held the topping out ceremonies for the first apartment houses Steinadler and Hirsch.

The packed three day itinerary involved welcoming villagers, the construction team and owners to Andermatt for speeches, BBQ’s, tours and celebrations.  Although the sky was a little cloudy, it could not detract from one of the most poignant moments on the second day as carpenter Remo Von Ah, following his speech, assisted in laying the topping-out wreath on the gabled roof of the building.

To mark these two momentus announcements we have collected some of our favourite images taken over the past years as we’ve watched The Chedi Andermatt and the apartments houses evolve.

A momentous day, the topping out ceremony at The Chedi Andermatt:
