  • We have far too many tourists in Switzerland. We locals feel foreign in our own country. Therefore, please, please, do not visit Switzerland. Tourism destroys also the environment and is bad for the climate. Also, Switzerland is not so beautiful and also very expensive. This video does not show reality.
