Weather
In Switzerland, the weather in June can be very variable, even within hours. So please be prepared for any kind of weather and temperature: Cold 14 degrees Celcius to 35 degrees Celsius, heavy rain or sunshine. On average, the highest daily temperature is 24.1 degrees Celsius and the minimum is 13.5.
Water Quality
Tap water has the same quality as bottled water and thus is perfectly safe to drink.
Electricty
The voltage and frequency in Switzerland is 230V/50 Hz. Type C (2-pin, unearthed) and the rather uncommon Type J (3-pin, earthed) sockets are available. (Type C 2-pin Europlugs also fit into J sockets).
Currency
Switzerland uses Swiss francs (CHF). ATMs and banks to exchange money are widely available, but fees might be smaller in your home country.
