The very middle of Switzerland

Where is the middle of Switzerland? The Federal Office for National Topography, swisstopo, used the digitised Swiss national boundaries to calculate the centre of gravity (mid point) of the country. It is near to the Alp Älggi in the Kleine Melchtal in Obwalden.

Do you know exactly where the very middle of Switzerland is? Near to a pretty little alp in the Kleine Melchtal, Obwalden canton.


Short, fast and with fantastic sweeping views.

Paradiesli Piste

There is a little paradise in Melchsee-Frutt just waiting for demanding skiers – the "Paradiesli " is the black-marked downhill run from the Bonistock to the Bettenalp. There is plenty of room on this wonderfully wide piste for carvers and snowboarders to enjoy.
