After we wanted to realize the idea of ​​holding a Classic Music Festival for many years, Andermatt has found an ideal location for developing this event. The idea of ​​holding a festival here is based on the fascination of Andermatt and the nature that surrounds this place and represents the attempt to combine the beauty and grandeur of nature with the beauty and grandeur of art.

The fortunate circumstance that we and Prof. Dr. Clemens Hellsberg was able to win one of the leading international experts as artistic director for this purpose, which made the development of the event possible in the first place. The Swiss Alps Classics is a new form of festival, which is particularly characterized by the intimate atmosphere and the proximity to the artists and, above all, the artist in residence.

As part of the "Swiss Alps Project", the region attracts investors from home and abroad and thus offers our event the perfect framework in front of the magnificent mountains of the canton of Uri. Staged for the first time in 2017, we can now look back on a multi-year success story. From June 15-17, 2023 the Swiss Alps Classics will take place for the seventh time. In June 2021 the festival celebrated its 5th anniversary. This festival of encounters on different levels aims to make people aware of the boundlessness of the art universe through an intense experience of music, which is reinforced by the impression of the nature surrounding the place. The program is rounded off by personal contact with the artists.
