Switzerland Outline Map

Switzerland is a landlocked European country sharing borders with Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, Italy, and France. However, Switzerland is not a member of the European Union and thus not included in our labeled EU map.

The country’s population is roughly 9 million, with a high percentage of foreigners (approximately 26%). The largest groups of inhabitants without Swiss nationality are Italians (328,000), Germans (311,000), Portuguese (255,000), and French 151,000).

There are four official languages in Switzerland: German (65.6% of the population in 2021), French (22.8%), Italian (8.4%) and Romansh (0.6%).

Our first map is a Switzerland outline map showing only the outer boundary of the country.
