Not that I'm disagreeing with you guys, but OP did specify Switzerland/Europe.
That's why I didn't suggest Caracas or Detroit. But it's a good idea to put those on your bucket list of ugly!

Re: When you have been everywhere nice you need some spice.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Detroit, nice place. But actually the first and only place where I really felt unsafe so far.

If we go over the pond: Erie, PA.

Staying in Europe: La Grande-Motte, but its an other league of quirky.

Staying in Switzerland: Any reasonable priced hotel in Bern.

Your next destination is Caracas then.

Well now! Quirky is a whole new kettle of fish!
I love quirky towns. Ugly. Not so much.

Re: When you have been everywhere nice you need some spice.

I often recently visited two Swiss retirement homes, both the people I visited have now died. The homes were depressing places anyway, and then there were the rules... No wonder Exit cannot keep up with the demand.

If one has seen all the nice place, only the bad and the ugly ones are the good ones left.

So which ones are the worst places in Switzerland/Europe? Those which you would recommend your MIL or your Swiss neighbor? The places not worth a blink of an eye nor a stop to take a piss?
CH: Wallisellen. Aarau. Olten.

Re: When you have been everywhere nice you need some spice.

A couple of UK towns which are often in the top 10 chaviest towns
Crawley, West Sussex - the locals call it "the Armpit of the universe".
Redhill, Surrey - where having a baby when you are over 16 is seriously uncool!

We like to pretend Geneva isn't part of Switzerland unless something brilliant happens there.
