- 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.
- 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).
- Switzerland uses Swiss francs (CHF). ATMs and banks to exchange money are widely available, but fees might be smaller in your home country.
