Switzerland Tourist Traps: 31 reviews and 18 photos


Switzerland is not a member of European Union and has its own currency : the Swiss Franc (CHF).

Euro is accepted in main touristic places, but you will get a quite unfavourable exchange rate if you pay in this currency.

Unique Suggestions: Avoid to pay in Euro. Try to change your Euro in a bank to get better exchange rate.

Fun Alternatives: I recommend you to pay with credit card which are widely accepted in Switzerland.

Have a look to our National Bank website to learn more about the Swiss money $wi$$ National Bank
