    Route Description for Andermatt to Goschenen

    This walk is over easy terrain, you could probably even do it in flip flops if you wish, but comfortable trainers are best. Take note of the train schedule to be sure you can make the return trip from Goschenen by the time you finish the hike.

    From the train station, follow the GPS track and walk along Gotthardstrasse northward. Andermatt is surrounded by mountains, and as you start your walk you will see Meiggelenstock (2,416 m) guarding the village from the northwest.

    About 1km into the walk, you enter a steel structure through a door and pass through a tunnel to cross under the road. The footpath will take you adjacent to a waterfall where the Reuss River flows in a powerful cascade.

    1.4 km into the hike you will see the Suvorov monument, which honors the Russian soldiers who fought and defeated French soldiers under Napoleon at the Schollenen Gorge in 1799. Beside the Suvorov monument is the start of a via ferrata route.

    The footpath will pass a bridge over the Reuss River and pass under the Devil’s Bridge. The vertical cliffs around the Devil’s bridge have some rock climbing routes on offer.

    Follow the path as it winds its way down the valley. At various points you will be adjacent to or sometimes right over the Gotthardstrasse (Gotthard road). The steep walls of the gorge surround you for the rest of the hike.

    As you reach Goschenen, look for the train station and take the short train ride back to Andermatt.
