Renting car in Germany, driving to Switzerland?

Jump to last reply

We will be spending some time in the Baden-Wurttemberg area, and are planning on renting a car while there. While we are in the Black Forest, we would like to visit Sissach (a suburb of Basel), Switzerland, which is about 10 miles across the border (less than 20 miles from Lorrach), and accessible on a secondary road.

Our questions: Do we need to buy the special "road tax stamp/permit", or whatever it's called, for driving in Switzerland, or is it only for major highways? If we do, where would we purchase one, and how much does it cost? Are there any other compliance issues that we need to be aware of, driving in German and Switzerland.

Peace,
Robyn :)>-
