Tips for sustainable travel in Switzerland

1. Climate-friendly travelling

Travel by public transport such as trains, buses and boats. Switzerland has the densest transport network in the world. You can reach any destination easily and conveniently by public transport. This not only reduces your ecological footprint, but also allows you to enjoy the scenic beauty of Switzerland while you are travelling. Find out more about sustainable mobility in Switzerland.

2. Save energy and resources

Observe energy and water-saving measures in your accommodation, such as switching off lights and electronic devices when not in use and limiting the washing of towels and bed linen.

3. Support local products and businesses

Choose accommodation, restaurants and shops that use local produce and are run by local businesses. This supports the local economy and helps to minimise the environmental impact of transporting products.

4. Respect nature

Make sure you respect the environment while travelling by disposing of rubbish properly, staying on hiking trails and protecting sensitive ecosystems such as mountain lakes and forests. Take nothing but photos and memories with you and leave nothing but footprints. Here you will find an overview of how recycling works in Switzerland (in German only).

5. Hiking and cycling

Explore Switzerland in a sustainable way by using hiking and cycling as a means of transport. There are numerous well-marked hiking and cycling trails that take you through breathtaking landscapes while protecting the environment.

6. Reduce plastic consumption

Avoid buying single-use plastic products such as water bottles and use reusable drinking bottles made from materials such as glass or stainless steel instead. Also carry a reusable shopping bag with you to avoid plastic bags.
