Andreas (pronounced ANN-dreez) is a village in the southeast corner of Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, in West Penn Township on Route 895. A small part of Andreas is also in East Penn Township in Carbon County. The Lizard Creek flows eastward through the village to the Lehigh River. Andreas lies at the northern foot of Blue Mountain in ZIP code 18211.

The village takes its name from Andreas, Isle of Man.[citation needed]

The village and surrounds are geographically closer to Allentown and Bethlehem than to the Schuylkill County seat at Pottsville. Because of this, and its location on the Carbon County border, it is often seen as a suburb/exurb of the Lehigh Valley region.[citation needed]

Andreas is served by the Mantzville (386) exchange in area code 570, though residents in the eastern section of the village can be assigned a number in the Lehighton (377) exchange of area code 610.

Andreas is surrounded by slate quarries. Galen Glen Winery is located one mile north of the village and is included in the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail of the Lehigh Valley AVA.
