In Switzerland psytrance scene is booming. There are many parties every weekend. The usually more quiet people of this small country like to party a lot.
During your journey through Switzerland you will find that travelling by day is much more attractive. The mountain peaks, green forests and fields, lakes and rivers are full of energy for your body, mind and soul.
It is very hard for organizers to find partylocations in Switzerland. Everything is very close to each other and open space is rare, except in the high mountains. A lot of the free space is protected by law and in bigger events the government is taking a lot of influence on how the infrastructure has to be, which surely is an advantage for the visitors. Swiss parties are usually good organised.

For clothes and nice small things: Niederdorf (the old city) or Longstreet in Zurich, Avarox in Berne...

Train and bus bring you nearly everywhere in Switzerland, hire a car with mobility or rent a bike. Switzerland is a safe country and hitch-hiking a cheap alternative.
Cheapest stay is in youth hostels, but not all of them are really cheap. Studying the tourist sites of your destination city and of coure trip advisor and similar sites will help you a lot.
Tibits or Hiltl restaurant for an excellent vegetarian buffet, or in winter time try Fondue (many restaurants)
