Oh, Slowpoke, you have failed to allow for the helipad in your calculations.

But seriously I had long since bowed to your superior analytical skills. I agree.

Incidentally I read the exaggerated number in an article in a then current magazine in our room at the Hotel Continental Park. The Swiss Tourism lady did not perpetrate the myth. Perhaps it originated back in 2013 in this article dia/179965/13_08_23_bh r_artikel_bilanz.pdf (see bottom left on page 4). My German is not sufficient to interpret the article but I recognise the 100 000 ;-) .

Looks like a good article.

Ich werde übersetzen. Mit einem Worterbuch in meinen Händen.

Ein BIsschen -

<<"mit jährlich 100000 Besuchern.">>

...with 100,000 visitors per year.

Fair dinkum? ;-)
