Switzerland (German: Schweiz, French: Suisse, Italian: Svizzera) is a landlocked country first appearing in Euro Truck Simulator and subsequently Euro Truck Simulator 2. It borders France, Germany, Austria and Italy.

The country is famous for its location in the Alps scenery, and hence curvy roads and tunnels.

Switzerland, along with Norway, Russia, Turkey and United Kingdom are the five non-EU countries featured in ETS 2 (without the Scandinavia and Beyond the Baltic Sea DLCs, Switzerland is one of two Non-EU countries, the other being the United Kingdom.). Switzerland and Norway are members of the Schengen Area, meaning there is no border control when entering or leaving the country.

Accessible Cities[edit | edit source]

In ETS 1, only Bern, the de facto capital in real-life, is featured. Two more cities – Genève and Zürich – are included in Euro Truck Simulator 2.

ETS 2[edit | edit source]

While there are 22 Autobahns in Switzerland, only the first four are featured in Euro Truck Simultor 2.

A1 A2 A3 A4
Geneve - Zurich
A3 (Swiss) - A4 (Italy)
Zurich - A35
A81 (Germany) - A1

In particular, only one Autobahn crosses the Alps towards Italy, with the other two Alps-crossing roads being minor roads. There are also minor roads connecting France and Austria, while the only featured access into Germany is an Autobahn.

Switzerland imposes only two main speed limits for trucks. Excluding special speed restrictions at places such as road work sites, trucks are limited to 50 km/h (31 mph) in cities, and 80 km/h (50 mph) elsewhere.
