Opening Hours

Each Swiss canton currently decides how long shops and businesses can stay open. With the exception of convenience stores at 24-hour service stations and shops at airports and train stations, businesses shut completely on Sunday. High-season opening hours appear in listings for sights and attractions; hours are almost always shorter during low season.

Banks 8.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday

Museums 10am to 5pm, many close Monday and stay open late Thursday

Restaurants noon to 2.30pm and 6pm to 9.30pm; most close one or two days per week

Shops 10am to 6pm Monday to Friday, to 4pm Saturday
