You'll need to find somewhere at or above 3000m to guaranty cool weather.

Yep, Switzerland is fortunate enough to be surrounded by mountains. So anywhere up is good.

We went to melchsee fruit today. It was bearable as there was a strong breeze. It's at 1900m. You could go to engelberg and up the titlis side. Someone else said and it's true you need to be well over 3000m at the moment for it to be significantly cool which is a little tricky. You could try the forest and river of the sihltal behind you. It's not high but shaded all the time and a little cooler.

Near (better in) running water - like shady brooks and so. Under trees ...
Mountains no big use really, heat goes way up, shady trees rare.
Cinemas, shopping centres, shady bars... lukewarm or cold showers...
Must be winter in Australia, Argentina and Brazil now ...
