Zug indeed IS beautiful, as is Thun, but Interlaken, in spite of beautiful surroundings is rather ugly

Re: Vote for the most beautiful Swiss town.

Here are just a few of my faves:

Werdenberg SG (actually, it's more like a museum than a real town)
Solothurn SO (the city of elevens. It's worth a trip, then a hike up the Weissenstein. Gorgeous panorama of Bernese Alps).
Arlesheim BL(check out the Domplatz - and the Silbermann organ in the Dom)
Dornach SO (right next to Arlesheim, see above. Goetheanum and anthroposophic architecture)
Rheinfelden (charming old town, not the Augarten part. The saunas and brine packs are great too)

Olten (just kidding, this is definitely not on my list. Nothing charming about it, but it does have great train connections to Zurich, Basel, Berne and Lucerne)

Re: Vote for the most beautiful Swiss town.

Out of the few places I have been, I'd say Stein Am Rhine and Gruyere, was last weekend at Ascona, very nice too.

Re: Vote for the most beautiful Swiss town.

Luzern is the most beautifaul city for me. And among others: Thun, Stein-am-Rhein, Morcote. But here it is such a small difference between towns and villages...

Re: Vote for the most beautiful Swiss town.

Estavayer-le-Lac and Stein am Rhein in the lowlands and Paradiso, Ti.

Mountainwise there's a bunch of beautiful hamlets up in Graubünden towards S-chanf that I find particularly charming.

My favorite town used to be Ulrichen, VS, but since the Hunter airplanes left and they chopped up the runway, it's not worth a visit any longer.

Re: Vote for the most beautiful Swiss town.

Sent, Unterengadin. One of the last towns before the Austrian / Italian border. It's quaint, cosy, authentic and very much alive and thriving.

Ascona. Love the location, the town, the lakeside paths and the secret FKK beach where all the artsy folk gather.

Ciao st2lemans, what's your favorite Tessin town/village? I'm guessing it's somewhere less schmuddelig.
