The center of Switzerland is on a wonderful alp, 1650 meter above sea level. There is a triangle and a plate with the names of all the “Swiss of the year” which get elected by Swiss TV since many years.
How to go there:
You can go up there by car from Flüeli-Ranft or, even shorter, from Sachseln. It will take you between 25 and 40 minutes to drive up depending from where you start. This drive is only for drivers who are used to drive narrow and windy roads. On week-ends there are restrictions. You can drive up every even hour the first 40 minutes and down every uneven hour the first 40 minutes on Saturdays, Sundays and holydays.
It is also easy to walk to Aelggi Alp from the Hasliberg (takes 3 hours), or Giswil-Kaiserstuhl (takes 4 hours 30 minutes). There are great walks you can do from Aelggi Alp which take between 1h and 5H30.
