Removals to Switzerland – Getting to Know Your New Country of Residence

Switzerland is officially called the Swiss Confederation, Confoederatio Helvetica in Latin, hence its country code of CH, and is a landlocked country in Western Europe. Switzerland is bordered by five countries, which are Germany, France, Italy, Austria and Liechtenstein. The country is multilingual and has four national languages German, French, Italian and Romansh.

Switzerland is a Federal Republic consisting of 26 states called Cantons; it has approximately 7.5 million inhabitants and is one of the richest and safest countries in the world.

The first Swiss Confederation appears to date back to August 1st 1291 now celebrated as Switzerland’s National day. Switzerland has a long history of neutrality and did not take part in either World War I or World War II. The capital of Switzerland is Bern, with the largest city being Zurich.

Switzerland is the watch making capitol of the world. It is also well-known for Nestlé chocolate, the book ‘Heidi’, swiss bank accounts and skiing in the swiss alps.

Swiss employment law bans working on Sundays, so virtually all shops stay closed. An exception is any business in a railway station or if a business is a family one, as you aren't employing anybody so you can open, hence small shops can also open on Sundays.

Removals & Shipping to Geneva

Geneva lies at the source of the Rhone. For many years it has been known as the “capital of peace” since it is home to the Red Cross and the United Nations but Geneva is more than just the world’s conscience - it is a bright, lively and vibrant city of its own. Its famous watermark, the “Jet d’eau” regularly shoots a water jet 140 metres into the sky and all round the lake you’ll find grand hotels and swanky restaurants.

Basel is the oldest university city in Switzerland. Many landmark buildings surround the large market square in the centre of the city including the Town Hall and Cathedral. Shopping is a delight here, with small boutiques and bookshops alongside designer fashion and house wares. Basel’s very green too; you can visit the botanical gardens, wander the parks, relax for a while on the banks of the Rhine or visit  Switzerland’s largest zoo.

Removals & Shipping to Lausanne

Lausanne is a picturesque city on Lake Geneva, it doubles as a thriving commercial town and a holiday resort. Built on three hills and surrounded by vineyard-covered slopes, Lausanne looks out across the lake, toward the Savoy Alps. The town is mostly car-free, though not completely pedestrianised and small alleyways lined with cafés and boutiques, take the place of roads. Lausanne’s metro system links the city  and makes light work of travel around the hills.

Removals & Shipping to Bern 

Bern is the capital of Switzerland and like many capitals around the world it features some quite beautiful buildings but very few cities can boast quite such stunning architecture. There are 6 kilometres of arcades for you to explore, providing for an exciting shopping experience. Come summer there is swimming in the River Aare and at feeding time, the chance to see the Bern bears, which are immortalised, in the city’s coat of arms.

Removals & Shipping to Lucerne

The city of Lucerne boasts some of the most picturesque mountain scenery in Europe. Situated on a lake of the same name, it is a regular stop off for those on their way to and from the mountain treks of Rigi, Pilatus and Stanserhorn and as a result, there are plenty of souvenir shops around the place. The older part of Lucerne has been designated car free and it makes for great walking as it is lined with historic houses many of which are decorated with frescos.
