A pretty hard quiz for non Swiss people, with some obscure trivia and some traps designed for people having a rather extensive knowledge about the country (especially in my opinion "Which famous village is situated on the foot of the Matterhorn?", with two places very close to each other that can create doubt even though the answer is obvious). Very nice quiz, kudos to you!
