Switzerland is the place to go to avoid tourists

The Swiss mountain towns are full of tourists, but they are European tourists. We have seen other North Americans maybe twice in a week. Grindelwald and Zermatt are popular with Americans, but the rest of the mountain towns are touristed by other Swiss, Germans and Brits. Now I have nothing against North American tourists – I love running into other Americans in Europe and always strike up a conversation if I can – but it really is fun to be somewhere with no other Americans.
