The fire crackles and it smells delicious.
About half a kilometre outside of Andermatt is the Flies fireplace. The inviting picnic area by the brook can be reached on foot from the station in about 20 minutes.
The path leads along the village circuit and the moorland nature trail from Andermatt in the direction of Unteralp. Families with prams can also easily reach the picnic area.
The brook offers space for playing and relaxing: whether it's damming up the water with self-built stone walls or Kneipp baths - both young and old feel at home here. While the parents take care of the fire and food, the children play happily at the brook and on the mountain meadow opposite.
