This is Monotropa hypopitys which is commonly known as pinesap, Dutchman's pipe or yellow bird's-nest. I had never seen this in Switzerland before and then, there it was, a few hundred metres from my house. This seems to be the summer flower which is yellow. and not so hairy The lifestyle of this parasitic plant is fascinating and worth reading about.
