Vote for the most beautiful Swiss town.

I came across this while surfing -

http://www.schoenste-stadt.ch/voting.php

Unfortunately, it has a list of Swiss towns to select from which didn't include the two towns that are the most beautiful I have visited (so far) - Stein-am-Rhein and Scuol.

Some of the towns on the list are down right ugly, it's just the surrounding mountains that are beautiful.

So where would you vote for?

Re: Vote for the most beautiful Swiss town.

Perhaps Stein-am-Rhein and Scuol don't count as towns. It looks more like a list of most of the towns of a certain size to me. Or maybe they just asked round the office and made a list of all the towns which anyone came up with.

So where would you vote for?
Quite obviously, that list of towns to vote for is based on the number of inhabitants, a town, according to Swiss definition, being a settlement of 10,000 or more people. That's the reason why quite a few beautiful places are not listed. You can vote for Buchs SG, but Werdenberg, just around the corner, historically a genuine town and one of the cutest places in the country, is missing. Neuhausen, ha ha, but Diessenhofen is missing.

Just boycot that nonsense.
