Re: Border crossing

The reason is some places retain their German names is that are or were in the Department of Alsace which historically is a Germanic region with its own recognised dialect.
Also of interest in this area of Switzerland is how other cantons have an enclave in other cantons. It must be a very difficult region to administrate and deal with officialdom!
