Where on earth is THIS?

Stepdad Tony took this picture in the 60s while travelling through Europe, and has no memory of the location. He suspects it may be Alsace-Lorraine, but has no idea.

Anyone recognize it? Would welcome any comments...

It could be the Swiss-German part of Switzerland or Lichtenstein, the architecture is typical of these regions. You can also find this style in Germany, too.

I live in Switzerland and some of the old houses are still like that in my area.

In English, the architectural style is called "Old timber framed houses". The Spitalmühle [hospital mill] in Lucerne (Switzerland) is an example of that style (http://travelguide.all-about-switzerland.info/lucerne-wooden-houses.html)
or the Zug (Switzerland) castle (http://www.zug-tourismus.ch/en/navpage-CongressZT-SpecialRentLocalityZT-115625.html) .
