“Geographic Center of Switzerland”
Reviewed 19 September 2011

The geographic Center of Switzerland is situated on the Aelggi Alp above Sachseln. You can walk or bike up from Flüeli-Ranft or Sachseln as well as from the Brünig area. There is no public transport to the Alp but there is a taxi which can bring you up there from Sachseln. You also can drive up by car on a very narrow windy road. On Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays the upper part of the road is restricted. You only can drive up there during even hours the first 40 minutes and down all uneven hours the first 40 minutes.
Where the Center is, there is a triangle with a plate where all the people get marked on who were elected “Swiss of the Year” by the Swiss TV for their special efforts. During summer time hundreds of cows come up there to spend the summer on the alp. There are a few houses around the alp. Some of them sell some alp cheese (hmm, very special).
Only five minutes from the geographic center of Switzerland there is a restaurant which offers rooms - http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g1096323-d2275985-r117935019-Berggasthaus_Aelggialp-Sachseln_Unterwalden.html -.
The Geographic Center of Switzerland and Aelggi Alp are worth the effort to visit.
