The flying rubbish truck

The rubbish collection service at Bettmeralp – a car-free village in the mountains of upper canton Valais – must be unique in the world. In the absence of any road connection to the village, a 7.5-tonne lorry is carried up and down the mountain by cable-car.


The small «Berggasthaus» beneath the cliffs in canton Appenzell is one of the most famous destinations in Switzerland.
