About Switzerland

Here are some useful and less useful facts about Switzerland.

Official languages are German, French, Italian and Romansh. In cities most people will understand and speak English.
We love money, we use Swiss Francs (CHF). Euro (EUR) may be accepted in some places. Cashless payment methods are widely accepted.
Tipping is not compulsory. Feel free to tip (5% - 10%) if you're happy with the service though.
We drive on the right side of the road.
Public transportation
We have one of the most efficient, extensive and probably expensive public transportation systems in the world.
We use the Type C and Type J outlets. Voltage is 230V and the electrical frequency is 50Hz.
Dial 112 for any kind of emergency.
Switzerland has high-quality tap water, there's no actual need to buy bottled water. You can also drink the water from all public fountains unless there is a sign not to (you won't find many of these).
Many shops in Switzerland remain closed on Sundays, except for some in railway stations and airports.
