Known as Autobahns in Germany, AutoRoutes in France and Autostrades in Italy; however, all of these names in addition to Autostradas make up the names used nationally for freeways or motorways in Switzerland. Two of the most important and perhaps densely used freeways are the A1 which runs from St Margrethen in the north east of Switzerland through to Geneva in the south west as well as the A2, running from Basel in the north west part of Switzerland through to Chiasso in the very south of Switzerland which borders Italy.

Swiss motorways have a general speed limit of around 120km/h or 75mph and if your vehicle is unable to reach a minimum of 80km/h or 50mph then you’re banned from using them.

In total, the Swiss autobahn or AutoRoute as they’re sometimes known are made of a whopping 1,763 kilometres, that’s roughly 1,095 miles. Switzerland is also home of one of the highest motorway densities in the entire world, with a huge number of tunnels amongst it’s motorway network, totalling around 200 tunnels, of which make up roughly 220 kilometres, or 140 miles.

Despite its immense size, the Swiss Autobahn/AutoRoute network is yet to be completed which means they’ll soon be further freeways for us to travel upon, no doubt lowering travel time even further. In order to travel within the Swiss road network, we also require vignette, which is a toll sticker. Trucks such as our larger 18 tonne lorries however, have to pay a toll based on tonnage and distance also.
