Yes it`s Switzerland and no it`s not the most expensive country in this world!
I have seen some YouTube videos who shows the world how expensive Switzerland is, but they just travelled to Zurich, the most expensive city in Switzerland.
We have very good chocolate, cheese, beers and sausages for good prices.
Chocolate hot/cold or as a bar
The cheapest and best chocolate you will find it in the supermarket "Coop" and it`s called "PrixGarantie" Chocolate for just 0.8 USD and in different tastes!
The popular chocolate powder for hot chocolate is "OVOMALTINE" or "CAOTINA". My favourite is "Ovomaltine".
We have different levels of cheese, from mild to "rezent" (spicy). Yes cheese is a little bit more expensive but it`s the best cheese in the world!
The mild one - Emmentaler (The original)
The rezent - Gruyere or Appenzeller Extra

In every part of Switzerland the sausages tastes different, because there are so many butchers.
Nr. 1 "Schüblig"
This sausage is my favourite. It has a rought structure, is made out of pork and tastes like heaven. It`s the largest sausage we have in Switzerland and the only one in this world!
That one in our part we call them "The original St.Gallner Schüblig".
We grill it and eat it with bread, but with the tradicional bread "Bürli", crosty and so tasty.
Nr. 2 "Servelatte" or in swiss Servela
This sausage is also one of my favourite, it`s one of the important sausage when we make Swiss-BBQ. This must be never be missing!
Nr. 3 "Bratwurst" in swiss "Brotwurscht"
Bratwurst is also a typical sausage of Switzerland, but it`s the only one whos made out of veal.
Röschti is made from potatoes. We cook them in a pan, like a Pizza, but we cook it on both sides. To make them tastier we put bacon, herbs and cheese to it.
How to make it:
1. Cook the potatoes in water, 20min
2. Grate the potatoes
3. Mix the potatoes with bacon, herbs and with your favourite cheese.
4. Put some butter or oil into a large, flat pan.
5. Cook the "Röschti" in the pan and sweep the "Röschti", it has to be crispy on both sides!
Fondue is a dish we eat in the wintertime. There are so many types of Fondue who exists in Switzerland, in different flavours and with dofferent ingedients. No fondue without alcohol, because that's original!
- Cheesfondue with white wine (The original)
- Cheesfondue with "Moscht" (The fruity one, Swiss apple cider)
- Cheesfondue with Cherry brandy
- Cheesfondue with beer
The original brands: Gerber, Appenzeller and Gruyere
Also a cheese meal. But not only, there is also meat in that game ;)
It's like an dobledecker hot plate, at the top different types of meat and vegetables and between, the piece of cheese on a shovel which melts.
Moscht is made from apple and you can have it with or without alcohol. In each part of Switzerland they have their own "Moscht" and all of them tastes different.
We drinkt "Moscht" when we eat Fondue, Raclette or at the bar.
Ringen is like wrestling of Switzerland, but in a different way.
Two guys in a circle made from sand which must bring the other to the ground.
The winner of this event will receive the best bull of Switzerland.
There are so many public-transportations in Switzerland, trains, buses, ships and cablecars.
At the airport of Zurich, the trainstation is in the underground of the airport and goes in every directions.
