With Richard Carapaz, the strongest mountaineer has won the 84th Tour de Suisse. The South American won with 17 seconds ahead of Rigoberto Uran (COL). The final stage in Andermatt was Gino Mäder’s prey.
Andermatt Holiday Region comprises six municipalities: Andermatt, Hospental, Realp, Göschenen, Wassen and Gurtnellen. Andermatt lies in the Ursern Valley at 1,444 metres above sea level and its population counts approximately the same. Mobility around the Gotthard Massif can be demonstrated excellently by the history of the Ursern Valley: The central location in the midst of Alpine passes has been well known and actively used since Roman times. Historically, north-south travel has always best managed via the Gotthard, with only one mountain pass to cross.
