Where can I use Swiss Franc?

The Swiss franc is legal tender in Switzerland and Lichtenstein. Capture a photo moment at the Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps, or relax at Lake Geneva. If you’re crossing the border into Lichtenstein, explore hiking trails and stop off at the 13th Century Gutenberg Castle.
