The place is surrounded by the Gotthard mountain range and the views are breathtaking indeed. Andermatt is highly popular with tourists thanks to the perfect quality of the air and water in the region as well as its magnificent views. There you can find several luxury hotels with adjacent cable cars taking skiers to the tops of the mountains.
Andermatt has convenient transportation links with many places in the world thanks to its close proximity to international airports in Zurich, Basel, and Milan. This makes the resort area easily accessible for tourists from different countries. You can also catch a charter flight from the neighboring small airport in Buochs located 45 minutes away from Andermatt by car. There is also a train station in the village and the trains leave once an hour. Getting from Andermatt to Zurich, for instance, will take you two hours but you will have to change trains.

Why should you choose Andermatt to live in Switzerland?
Many visitors call Andermatt ‘a place of power’. They say that they feel full of energy there because they are surrounded by magnificent natural objects, they breathe fresh mountain air, and they drink crystal clear Alpine water. This is one of the reason why foreigners buy apartments in Andermatt.
Everything is within walking distance in Andermatt. A five-minute walk will take you to the cable car station. In ten minutes, you can find yourself at the top of the ski slope. In addition, numerous boutiques are located nearby as well as business centers where offices are available for rent. You can work comfortably from Andermatt too.
Andermatt is a year-round resort. You will have a wide choice of both summer and winter activities there.
In comparison to large cities such as Zurich, for example, Andermatt is a quiet place with very little nightlife. Residents of Andermatt can enjoy solitude in nature’s lap, a good night’s sleep, and a tranquil lifestyle. If you would like to attend a nightclub, you can go to Milan for a day.

It would not be correct to claim that Andermatt is a resort for wealthy people only. Local people make 5,000 Swiss francs (or more) per month and this amount is enough for living comfortably there. On the other hand, if you want luxury, you can also find it in the Swiss Alps.
There are wide opportunities for evening entertainment in Andermatt too. There is a concert hall that seats 650 people as well as three Michelin restaurants there.
Families with children will also find living in Andermatt comfortable. There you can find several kindergartens and a state secondary school. In the neighboring towns, there are private schools for your children. It doesn’t take more than one hour to get there by train.
Even though Uri is a German-language canton, almost all local people are fluent in English. Thus, you will not have to learn German if you want to integrate with the local community.

Can foreigners purchase real property in Switzerland?
Switzerland passed a law in 1961 that limited the opportunities for foreign nationals to buy real property in the country. The territory of Switzerland is rather small and the authorities were afraid that foreign investors could buy too much land. Since that time, the rules have been altered several times and the conditions have been relaxed a bit. The last changes to the legislation were introduced in 1997 when the so-called Lex Koller (Koller’s Law) was passed.
In accordance with the Law, foreign nationals are allowed to purchase holiday estate in Switzerland. If they buy a house or an apartment, its area cannot exceed 200 square meters. If they buy a piece of land, it cannot be larger than 1,000 square meters. In most cases, the foreign investor needs to acquire an approval from the municipal authorities before he or she can buy real property in Switzerland. There are quotas in addition to that: not more than 1,500 pieces of real property (residential accommodations, land plots, and so on) can be sold to foreigners per year. Enforcement of Lex Koller is monitored by the cantonal authorities.
Andermatt does not fall under Lex Koller. This means that any foreign national who is not a Swiss resident is entitled to buy property in the area, including suites in Val Val Hotel.
Legal residence in Switzerland for buyers of real property
If you are a citizen of another country, the fastest and the easiest way of acquiring legal residence in Switzerland is registering a company in the country and employing yourself. Employees of Swiss companies and members of their families qualify for residence permits. If you establish a GmbH company (the local analogue of an LLC), the minimum charter capital has to be 20,000 Swiss francs.

The canton of Uri is the second most attractive Swiss canton as far as corporate taxes are concerned. The corporate tax rate is 15% there and this includes the federal and the cantonal tax. Chances are that the rate can go down to 13% in the near future as the tax reform continues in Switzerland.
There is one more way of acquiring legal residence in Switzerland and this is by making a tax agreement with the Swiss authorities. Pay a lump sum tax and you will qualify for a residence permit.
A foreign national can sign an agreement with the cantonal administration and acquire residence permits for him/ herself and the members of the family in exchange for paying an annual tax. The tax rates are as follows:
- For EU citizens — from 100,000 francs per year;
- For non-EU citizens — from 200,000 francs per year.
If the sum looks high to you, you should take into account the fact that this is a fixed sum and you would not have to pay any other income nor property taxes in Switzerland. For some foreign investors, the tax agreement can be a very attractive opportunity, as a matter of fact.
You have to permanently reside in Switzerland for 10 years before you can qualify for citizenship of the country. Residence Permit Type C is the official name of the permanent residence permit in Switzerland.
