Customer Travel Tip: If you like scenery stay for a few days in order to get in many of the different railways, and viewing points in the area.

Liked: it's in the middle of the fricking alps! beautiful

Disliked: Very touristy place, not in an off putting way necessarily, but I thought the way that high-end fashion brands have overtaken a good chunk of the town was a bit too on the nose. Still heaps of locals to be found and a good genuine experience to be had.
