One thing that the other countries don't have are the mountaintop villages that are totally car-free (gas-powered cars). One can only get to them by train. The atmosphere is really relaxing, of course, as everyone will be strolling and enjoying the air and the sights. And of course, the air is really clean and pure.
However, it would really be best to actually stay in one of these villages rather than just taking a day-trip from a city.
You can research them at
Another great area is the Lucerne area. If you are looking for car free places then look for exemple at Rigi-Kaltbad where you only can go up by cablecar or cogwheel train. If you like it quiter there are more hotels in car free areas - see www.rigi.ch -.
For things to do look at the Top Questions about Lucerne (TA Lucerne forum) and at www.luzern.com
