It sounds like you're looking for raclette: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raclette The dish originates from the Swiss canton of Valais, not far from Geneva, which means the dish is quite common there. For the locals it's a winter dish, but there are quite a few (somewhat touristy) restaurants that serve it all year round, like this: http://www....

It appears that information is in fact not listed in full on public websites. So I called them and asked about specifics at the Brig train station: Storage duration Generally, the maximum storage duration is 24h However, you can extend the storage duration via supplementary payments before the 24h runs out, up to a maximum of 72h total If a 24h period ...

Other answers have covered the options of buying a Swiss vignette, however there's one more option you can try. When you get to the rental agency, ask if they have a car with a Swiss vignette in their inventory. While this may seem far-fetched, I've actually seen rental cars in Czech Republic with a valid Swiss vignette. Since they're valid for 14 months ...

Everthing is clearly explained in the Swiss Autobahnen site . The vignette is required for most major highways, and costs 40 swiss francs. In can be bought at "post offices, petrol stations, garages, touring club offices (TCS) and Customs". The time I used it I had rented a car in Frankfurt. As far as I recall, I got it at the border.

In Germany there are no special vignettes - it's all free. But yes, as already written in the comments, in Switzerland you need a vignette. The vignette costs 40 Swiss Francs and will be valid for one year. There is only this one version. The vignette is only needed for motorways, not for the rest. You can buy them at gas stations, or - most often - ...

You do indeed need a yearly vignette to drive on Swiss motorways. It costs CHF 40 and needs to be affixed to the windshield to be valid (in principle, merely having one somewhere in the car isn't enough to avoid a fine). The vignette for a given year is valid from the beginning of December in the year before until the end of January in the year after. I don'...

I recommend going to Creux du Van, Canton of Neuchatel, Switzerland. It is not in the Alps, but in Jura. Tt is very close to 100% sure you see an Ibex there. They normally don't flee there, cause you are standing above them on the cliff and they are at least 15 meter below you. And they know you cannot get there And the best: you can drive by car to the ...
