Switzerland (German: Schweiz; French: Suisse; Italian: Svizzera) is a landlocked country in Western Europe featured in Euro Truck Simulator 2.

Summary

The country is bordered by Italy to the south, France to the west, Germany to the north, and Austria and Liechtenstein to the east. Switzerland is famous for its location in the Alps scenery, and hence curvy roads and tunnels. Switzerland, along with Norway, Russia, Turkey, United Kingdom, North Macedonia, Kosovo, Serbia, Albania, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina, is one of the eleven non-EU countries featured in ETS 2 (without the 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. Despite this, in-game, truckers must pass through border crossings in order to enter or exit Switzerland.

On September 6, 2022, SCS announced that they will plan to rework Switzerland, after rework of Austria.[1] Meet the team who's designing the Switzerland rework from the Switzerland Rework - Meet The Team blog post.

The country famous for its banks, chocolate and watches covers an area of 41,285 square km. Swiss capital city Bern is notable for its old town centre and a number of heritage sites. Switzerland has 71,345 km of roads, total length of the autobahn network is 1,638 km.

The Switzerland rework was officially released as part of 1.50 update, with all three cities completely reworked. Like Austria, Switzerland now has weigh stations, which also includes border crossings that connect between Germany, Austria, France and Italy (excluding certain parts that connect betwween Switzerland and France, and one part that connect between Switzerland and Italy, both of which do not have border crossings).

Roads

While there are 22 Motorways (DE: Autobahnen, FR: Autoroutes, IT: Autostrade) in Switzerland, only the first four were featured in the initial release of Euro Truck Simulator 2. Five more Autobahns (including three branch routes of the A1) were added in update 1.50 with the Switzerland rework.
