Some examples of costs in Switzerland

Switzerland is a beautiful country, but it’s important to know that living here is quite expensive. Prices can vary considerably from region to region.

Rents in Switzerland are high, particularly in the big cities.

If you're looking for a one- to three-bedroom flat, you can expect to pay between CHF 1,000 and CHF 2,500 a month. However, shared flats or student accommodation can bring rents down considerably.

Food is more expensive in Switzerland than in other European countries.

If you want to eat out, be prepared to pay between CHF 20 and CHF 50 for a meal per person. Food in shopping centres is also more expensive than in many other European countries. However, you can find some chain shops that have very affordable prices.

Public transport is good, but prices can be high.

If you take a public transport ticket, the cost can be around 3 CHF to 5 CHF for a one-way bus journey. For train journeys, on the other hand, tickets vary according to the distance travelled. The CFF (Swiss Federal Railways) will give you the price directly on their website.

Leisure activities can also be quite expensive

If you want to go to the cinema, a concert or a museum, expect to pay between CHF 15 and CHF 30 for admission.





Don't forget to plan a realistic budget based on your needs and financial means to avoid financial surprises when living in Switzerland.
