It's from the German speaking part of Switzerland.

But then again, I've met swiss people who would deny that - who claim that swiss german is a language all on its own and not just a funny german dialect.

Isn't it called Romish or something like that? I know a little German and some French, and I couldn't understand a word of what anybody was saying in places like Berne or Schaffhausen.

You are thinking of romansch, one of the four official languages of Switzerland (the others being italian, french and swiss german). It's a romanic language and thus closer to italian and french than to german.

My german is decent, but I'm lost, when it comes to the swiss version. I think many native german speakers are as well.

So it goes.
