Andermatt, Switzerland, June 2012. The Furka GLacier. The Glacier Express from Zermatt to St.Moritz also stops at Andermatt. There are roads in all four cardinal directions to Andermatt, and being a bit off the beaten track, driving there may be an alternative. The town is surrounded by mountain passes, and you need to cross at least one in order to get into the town. The highest of them, Furka to the west is situated at more than 2400 meters and he Andermatt itself more than 1400 meters (almost one mile) over the sea level. Driving through alpine passes is a great experience and the views are fantastic.By taking the train to reach the highest railway stations of Europe, we get the trailheads for some spectacular high alpine hikes.
