UK Safety and Travel Advice for Switzerland

Most visits to Switzerland are trouble-free. There is a generally low rate of serious crime in Switzerland compared with other European countries. However, crime does occur and you should be aware that petty theft has become a concern, especially in the Geneva area and larger cities. Be particularly alert to pickpockets, confidence tricksters and thieves in city centres, airports, railway stations, on trains and in other public places.
