Home > FAQ > Our services > Other questions
We are a for-profit business. We are not an official Swiss information agency. Sorry, but we cannot be everything to everybody. Questions unrelated to our
business will not receive an answer*.
Here are a few typical requests we receive but don't answer:
The best source is the official Swiss train site, www.cff.ch. It gives you all schedules within, to, and from Switzerland in 4 languages, including English.
Sometimes people ask us the phone number of some person or company in Switzerland. We are not the phonebook company, but if you need them they do have a website. We use www.teldir.ch and www.pagesjaunes.ch
Information about Swiss ancestors
Many Swiss moved to South America during the 1850s. If you are the descendant of such Swiss, we congratulate you for your interest in your family roots. We do not, however, offer genealogical services. We don't know where you can find some either.
Swiss job search
We do not offer job search services in Switzerland. If you want to find a job in Switzerland, you need to look for it yourself. We don't know of any services that look for jobs. We do not handle work permits for individuals either.
Our site contains a lot of information about Switzerland but we are not the Swiss tourist
office. If you need tourist information please visit http://www.switzerlandtourism.ch, the official Swiss tourist office.
Information for school projects
You will find lots of information about
Switzerland on our site and on an official Swiss government
website, www.schweiz-in-sicht.ch. If you want to know more,
you can call the Swiss embassy in your country and ask to talk to the cultural
attaché whose job it is to make Switzerland better known.
