Exploring a Swiss Village
During our May trip to Switzerland, we stayed at the Chedi Andermatt, a glamorous ski chalet fit for James Bond. Just 90 minutes by train from Zurich, Andermatt is a quaint village in the Urseren Valley in the Swiss Alps. It was once declared by Goethe as the "most interesting and dear region" (in 1779). Not a whole lot has changed since then, as evidenced by the age of the local church and the historic homes. Using the town as a homebase, travelers can board the charming Glacier Express railway, which connects Zermatt to St. Moritz. Film buffs will recognize Andermatt from a cameo appearance in Goldfinger.
