Switzerland has always been politically neutral and does not

take sides in foreign wars.

Actually Hitler did have plans in his drawer for the attack on

Switzerland. But Hitler's attitude towards attacking Switzerland

was "we'll pick up Switzerland on our way back." Also, Switzerland

warned the Germans that if they were to attack them, they will blow

up the railway connecting Italy and Germany, making it harder for

them to communicate. In exchange, Switzerland granted Germany the

right to enter and leave Switzerland without being questioned.
