Thanks for the pictures.. Swiss cities are extremely charming. Judging by the pictures maybe even too well-kept in some areas.

Beautiful country, but I agree with the above, can be almost 'sterile' in appearance. Still, not a bad thing.

Great pics

Beautiful pictures and country mate, I'm especially fond of the alpine areas - don't come more beautiful than that!

Great work mate!

I enjoyed my time in Switzerland a lot! Great little country indeed!

As for the cities themselves (being viewed as an entity apart from the country's natural beauty, of whcih it has bucketloads) I prefer Austrian and German cities I have to say, but Zürich is a bit special.

Maybe Zurich or Basel are grittier.
