Most beautiful staircases in Switzerland

Switzerland is not only home to the world's longest staircase (the Nielsen Railway staircase has 11674 steps), but also to some incredibly beautiful ones. From Aarau to Zürich, from spiral to zigzagging through space, here are 50 of my favourite staircases !
