How Switzerland is Seen by Foreigners

Ok, this one was fun: We tried to think of different ways in which Switzerland is perceived by foreigners. All stereotypes appearing in this post are fictitious, and any resemblance to reality is purely coincidential! So, enlarge each map by clicking on it and let us know your reactions in the comments...










And as a special tribute to all the Ohio State Buckeyes out there:

FYI: Interstate I-270 is actually exactly to size! In other words, Columbus is about the same size as the canton of Zurich where we live!

Are you offended by these maps? If you are, why not leave a comment below?
