    Drink the tab-water & from the wells !

    by globetrott Updated Apr 19, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    NO need to buy bottled water :
    All over Switzerland the tabwater is drinkable
    & from most wells as well !
    Dont hesitate to drink the fresh mountain-water directely from wells and fountains and from the tab, unless stated there not to do so ! In so many other parts of the world it will be dangerous to drink the water out of the faucet, but all over Switzerland you will be able to taste the best drinkable water at all of the small wells that you will see all over Switzerland !
    Just bring one of these light PET-bottles and fill them up when-ever you see one of these wells, the water comes freshly out of the mountains and tastes really great. Of course you may buy bottled water also in the supermarkets and in machines at all of the stations, but the price is at least 2 sfr / 1,50 euros for half a liter and the taste is not really special compared to the fresh mountain-water you may get at many fountains and tabs for free.
    b.t.w. the water is also always quite cool, like it would come out of the fridge.
