Hi, our plan of visiting Switzerland in October is taking shape nicely. We thought of bringing some meat/chicken ready-to-eat meals with us. Its like you just pour any water, not necessary hot, into the container and within minutes the food will be cooked, ready to be eaten.

We would like to know is there any restriction on bringing in such foods, or for that matter any other types of food, into Switzerland?

Thank you

Anna

Hi mrsoi,

Bringing in instant food in small number is fine.

You can also find ready meals here at the supermarkets. You can find more practical travel tips here: www.myswissalps.com/plantrip/doityourself/savemoney

On our trips to Switzerland, we ate least one meal per day out of the local market with take -away food. Where we stay in Murren, the only grocery (Coop) store always had a great selection of ready to eat food and beer/wine at reasonable prices. Unless you are camping in the wilderness, there is no need to bring food with you. One of the most memorable times we have had of our trips to Europe was eating bread, cheese, and cheap wine (from Migroes) on Pont Neuf in Paris (that was in 1981).
