Thinking of Moving to Switzerland?

Switzerland is a stunningly beautiful country with a tiny population that packs a powerful punch globally. There’s just 8 million Swiss, which averages out to around 195 people per square kilometre. And yet, despite there being less people in the whole country than the current headcount for London, Switzerland sits comfortably in the top 10 wealthiest countries in the world.

Switzerland is defined in our imaginations by its alpine peaks and glacial lakes but culturally it’s more complex. There are many different Switzerlands existing within its geographical boundaries, including the French-speaking Swiss, the Germanic Swiss and the Italian Swiss. There are 4 official languages (German, French, Romansh and Italian) and the country is governed by 26 autonomous cantons or member states.
