Should I learn Swiss German or German for Switzerland trip?

Jump to last reply

Taking a trip to Paris, Wengen Switzerland, and Munich this July. I speak French but not German. I realize people will say that most Swiss and Germans speak English, but I would like to try and learn the basics. I will be staying a week in Wengen and 3 days in Munich. If I learn German, will that suffice in Switzerland? Or should I try to learn Swiss German since I will have a longer stay in Wengen?
