1964 introduced Swiss post office as the third country (after the Federal Post Office and the United States pos valley service) the postal zip codes.

In Switzerland the postal zip codes are four digit. As is the case for the new postal zip code system in Germany a municipality can receive several postal zip codes. The fact that a locality leads its own postal zip code does not mean thus that it concerns an independent political municipality. In addition it comes that a postal zip code can cover several political municipalities (ex.s: , Parts of the municipalities Berne and Ittigen cover 3048 Worblaufen), thus a clear allocation in both directions not 100% are possible. The addressing of individual post offices is additional in larger cities often not possible (3000 Berne 1, 3000 Berne of 2 etc.) for this reason with six-digit postal zip codes is internally worked (300001, 300002).

Into the Swiss postal zip code system also the Principality of Liechtenstein is included. The German enclave on the high Rhine as well as the Italian enclave Campione D' Italia have additionally to its national ever its own Swiss postal zip code.

Structure of the postal code

The postal zip codes are developed according to a logical principle. The four numbers state each individually something over the geographical situation of the place concerned:

  • 1. Number: Main circuit
  • 2. Number: Leitgebiet
  • 3. Number: Distance (today in practice no more meaning comes. This allocation of the postal code comes from in former times, as still the whole post office with the railway was distributed.)
  • 4. Number: Place
