It's Creux du Van ?
Thanks. I had no idea about this at all, but thanks to your hint, I found out that it is a canyon named Creux du Van near Noraigue in the Canton of Neuchâtel on the border to the Canton Vaud. It is a protected nature reservation.

I have seen that station, but don't know. My guess would be St. Gallen
No, but that's off by roughly the same distance as cannut's guess.

It's a very small picture, so not much to go on. Is it the town/village or the field that is important here?

That's closer to correct than Bern, but still not it.
