Useful information

The plugs in Switzerland are different from the plugs in the surrounding European countries. Swiss plugs (Type J) are compatible with Type C plugs (which are often used for phone chargers) but not compatible with Type E and F plugs (which are often used for computers).

Please remember that Switzerland is not part of the European union. The currency is Swiss francs (CHF). Many places (especially supermarkets and ticket machines) also accept euros, but the exchange rate is bad and you will get CHF in return.
