    Michael, excellent overview about Switzerland, especially with all these special transportation deals. Although I have now seen quite a lot of Switzerland, there is still a lot left for new adventures. I haven't heard about these free birthday offers.

    Great and also funny page! Never heard the word Viehscheid before. Also never heard about the free birthday offers, they must be a well kept secret or else too many people would use them ;)

    Fundamental VT-job on this wonderful mountain country. Switzerland is still in my wish list... Thank you for the detailed transportation tips. I didn't know about a Highway-sticker.

    Useful information about where and when to visit the most famous mountain areas! So Axalp is where you started your hotel career! I also lived in Switzerland for one year = two semesters at the University of Bern, but that was quite a while ago, LOL.
