Andiast is a municipality in the region of Surselva in the canton of Graubünden. The terraced village is located in the Romansh language area of ​​Surselva on a climatically favorable sunny slope of the Vorderrheintal. By the end of 1980 Andiast was a small farming village without trade or industry, tourism brought a certain upswing. Today Andiast is a small winter sports resort with good access to the skiing and hiking area of ​​Breil / Brigels and Waltensburg / Vuorz. Because of its exposed hillside location, most residential buildings in the village center were built along the main road. At the end of the village, a narrow, paved hiking and driving road leads to the dam and neighboring village of Panix. A transport connection with Postbus traffic is only guaranteed on the serpentine road from Waltensburg station over the high plateau of Waltensburg.
