About Sasso San Gottardo
Are you lacking a unique idea for your next excursion? We do not only offer you group and team events on the mysterious Gotthard pass (located close to Andermatt and Airolo in the heart of Switzerland) but also visits and/or guided tours for individual guests and families.
We also do weddings! Why not celebrate the happiest day of your life in our exceptional and awesome location? In our crystal cavern.
Got stuck in the traffic jam in front of the tunnel? Why not take a detour over the pass and visit Sasso San Gottardo? Exit the dual carriageway in Amsteg, Wassen or Göschenen and follow the main road until you reach the pass, it is only 300 meters from the Restaurant Hospiz (Hospice) where you will find the entrance to our hidden world. We look forward to showing you the heart of Switzerland. Do not hesitate to give us a call so that we can make your visit unforgettable.
In addition to the former historical fortress, we have the Gotthard experience where we display the largest crystals ever found. Do not miss this great experience. Discover the heart of Switzerland – which you find on the Gotthard pass in the centre of Central Switzerland, between Airolo (Canton Ticino) and Andermatt (Canton Uri).
