How safe is Switzerland?

Switzerland has always given me a sense of security and comfort. Growing up there, I have only encountered a few unusual situations over the past 20 years. On two or three occasions, men tried to flirt with me, but I was never touched or followed against my will. The public transportation system, particularly trains, is very safe. Major train stations are well-monitored, enhancing overall security. Additionally, there's a helpful app you can download. If you ever feel uneasy, you can use the app to call someone who will stay on the phone with you, tracking your location until you reach home safely. These measures and my personal experiences have always made me feel secure and comfortable in Switzerland.

Switzerland is a very safe country. I’m living in Basel and it’s a nice city where everybody is taking care of others in case you need it. There are also some telephone numbers you can call in case you feel in danger and the attention is super good.

This country is very calm, people nice open and friendly. Crime level is very low. I never had problems in this country with safety. I was living in different places before and I have enough experience to verify this.

Last year, which was 2023, I visited Switzerland more than once. I had short stays in the span of 2 to upto 3 months for couple of days since I'm a concert pianist and taking many  master classes across entire  Switzerland. As someone who also used to live in  Geneva for 5 years my experience is a vast one. Switzerland? What to say? If you are travelling solo or decide to  live solo there is no safer place. Whereveryou go, you feel free and  protected. However, that comes with a price. Yes, Switzerland is extremely  expensive but as well offers many  opportunities earn a decent living. As for the travel there are always  variants and ways to stash some  money and not spend as much as  commercial society dictates via local  cheap hostels or couch surfing. In Switzerland people are very polite  and still can transmit that long  forgotten European flare of life and  culture. Food? 😁 One has to be honest and  admit that national cuisine is not a  very rich or tasty one, but with so many international restaurants you will surely not suffer! Of course, common supermarkets offer everything and beyond. Nature is absolutely astonishing and traveling through Switzerland to see it, is worth every penny and every second! So, if you are respectful towards others, have good manners, are hard-working and on top of everything a polyglot (preferably German, French; but English is spoken everywhere 😉) then pack your things and book your next trip to the land of cheese, lakes, mountains and watches!

Solo travel experience

I felt really safe in all the places I visited here, even at night by myself. If you like nature and outdoors activities, there are many things to do, but if you like to party, this place might not be the best. About the food, it is okay. The traditional dishes are quite tasty, but other than that, there’s not much variety. It is a very expensive country, public transport, restaurants, accommodation, etc. I stayed mostly in airbnbs, they were nice, and the train here is the best. Quite expensive but it is very good and always on time.

Everything is extremely expensive, particularly the train tickets. Public transport is great and extremely punctual. I found the people to be nice. On Sundays, only the restaurants open; no stores or markets are open. So, you can only walk and take stroll. I liked Bern more than Zurich. I found it more beautiful and with fewer modern constructions.

Solo travel experience

I was in Switzerland in May for 6 days. I had a car and drove from Zurich to Zermatt, where I spent 2 days. Then I went to Lauterbrunnen for 2 days and to Lucerne for another 2. I took a one-day trip to Bern for about half a day. There was a lot of traveling, but I had a great time and it is incredibly beautiful there.
