I need a country near switzerland that doesn't have fireworks around 1.August. I am very sensitive to loud sudden noises. It is recommended that i try to go across the border. I am into architecture(churches), gardens, museums art galleries and as cheap as possible( couch surfing- convents, hostels) my french is pathetic ( partially due to hearing and speech issues).
Baden being the last stop in kanton aarau before entering kanton zurich boasts a great old town. Some great shops and really funky cafes to boot. - and for you anglicans out there there is actually a branch of the church congregating therer. ( i just went to catholilc cause it is easier to get to a church my my town)
