* A fairy tale called [[http://duress.tripod.com/hansi.htm "Hansi and the Nix"]] is about a young cowherd named Hansi, who likes yodelling. He encounters [[ElementalEmbodiment a water spirit]] [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent or freshwater mermaid]] he calls Nixie. The two fall in love over the course of the summer, but then fall comes and Nixie doesn't want to come up to the surface anymore because it's too cold for her. So Hansi agrees to live with her...and starts to miss all the classic aspects of YodelLand: his favorite dairy cow, the cheese he made from the cow's milk, mountain flowers, etc. To make him happy (and thus remove any motivation for leaving the lake), Nixie brings him one thing...and [[MovingTheGoalposts then he gets wistful for another]]. [[spoiler: So one night, to put an end to that, she brings down Hansi's entire village. And they lived HappilyEverAfter under the lake.]]

* Music/GustavMahler composed many of his symphonies in various Alpine retreats in between long walks on mountain paths, and it shows. In one famous anecdote, Bruno Walter, visiting Mahler in Steinbach am Attersee while he was working on his third symphony, expressed his admiration of the mountain scenery, and Mahler's reply ran something along the lines of, "No need looking at that--I've already composed it all."

* The SoBadItsGood British sci-fi movie from 1969 ''Film/MoonZeroTwo'' (later seen on [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]) had a scene where the villain's Bikini Girls were too busy playing with the whole-wall TV set to pay attention to the game of Monopoly they were supposed to be playing with their boss. One of them was setting the screens to show typical Swiss scenery, an alpine meadow filled with typically Swiss cows. The boss ordered them to turn the wall off...
--> Girl: But I've never been to Switzerland!
--> Boss: The only thing worth seeing there are the banks.

* ''Comicbook/{{Asterix}} in Switzerland'' anachronistically depicts "Helvetia" with many Swiss stereotypes: fondue, cheese with holes, [[SwissBankAccount secret banking]], a "United Tribes" building, yodeling over alphorns, the invention of the cuckoo clock, and a FlowerFromTheMountaintop. There is also a subverted attempt at WilliamTelling.
