May overlap with {{Oktoberfest}}, given the German influence in the region (Switzerland officially was part of the HolyRomanEmpire until the Thirty Years War, Austria belonged to Germany before 1866 and from 1938 to 1945), or with NorseByNorsewest due to [[CriticalResearchFailure confusing Switzerland with Sweden]]. The Spanish-speaking people make the latter confusion because in the language both countries names ("Suiza" and "Suecia" respectively) are way more similar. Same goes for Russians ("Shveytsariya" and "Shvetsiya").

* WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} as Literature/WilhelmTell. It was set in Yodel Land, and there were lederhosen, cheese, hats with feathers, an alpenhorn, and fondue.

* 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."
