DRINKING WATER

Water from the tap is safe, high-quality and drinkable everywhere in Switzerland. It is therefore not necessary to buy bottled water to have access to safe and affordable drinking water.

CURRENCY

The Swiss official currency is Swiss Francs (CHF). Please make sure to always bring some cash with you as some places might not accept credit cards.
