Switzerland of course. Las Vegas is so artificial and an eye sore pretty much.

Yes. Switzerland, for the scenery.

You only need a weekend in Vegas, not 7 days.

Switzerland easily. Las Vegas sucks all around aside from the weather. If I am going to spend lots of money, I want to have authentic experiences and not tacky and fake garbage that you get in Vegas.

Switzerland, easy.

Las Vegas is only one city, limited in geography and scope and pretty much designed as a resort, How can that compete with an entire country in the Alps with lakes, mountains, cities, cultural and historical attractions, etc.

A better comparison might be Las Vegas vs. Monaco. In which case I would choose the latter if for no other reason the sea. The only thing Las Vegas lies up against is bland cookie cutter suburbs.

My guess is the OP is trying to make a point to somebody? It's like comparing Atlantic City to Italy.
