What and where is this?
Well, I've never been, but by total chance I just saw the same picture online. It's the Mountain Church in Mogno!

I now googled half a dozen train stations until landing on this one

Yes, I am impressed that so many do know their surroundings so well.

This may be a bit harder.
Hardbruecke station?

The question for me was where is the church? Until I realized that you had inserted such a HUGE photo and I just had to zoom out.

It is most probably where you went to school "Schulhaus Hans Asper"

Nope The display changes frequently and is a famous landmark for the city. I'm surprised nobody has got it yet
