Hello! My husband and I will be visiting Switzerland as WWOOFers on a budget, and we are interested in exploring the beautiful country with a mix of staying at hostels and with camping. I've read mixed reports about whether "wild camping" is allowed. Is it legal? For example, if I arrive in Zurich and hike to the nearest "wild" area (Uetliberg?), could I simply find a place in the forest/field and pitch a small tent for one night? I would of course not make a fire or leave any trash, or in any way leave a trace that I was there. I am similarly wondering about whether this would be allowed in the Jungfrau and Luzern regions.
Your guidance and recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
