Electricity and Power Outlets
In Switzerland the power sockets are of type J. The standard voltage is 230 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz (continental European standard). However, note that wall outlets are unique to Switzerland:
· The standard continental type hexagonal plugs with two round pins may be used without problems (type C – commonly used in Europe).
· German/French/Austrian/Italian plugs are not compatible with Swiss wall outlets.
Participants are advised to use an appropriate transformer. Adaptors for other plugs are available in most hotels.
