12 Most Important Traits of Swiss Women Rated 1-10 (+ Overall Score)
The very first thing we are going to do is break down the traits of Swiss women into categories. I will give an overall score of every category as well, so you can get the overall impression.
After reading this part you will know a lot more about their physical and personality traits, and make ground for action with Swiss girls!
An important thing to say before any of this is that all women are different, this is just what I have noticed during my experience with Swiss women.
Do not take anything for granted, and do not kill me if you don’t agree with everything I have said in the article.
What Physical Traits Distinguish Swiss Women from Other Women
1. Physical appearance
Trying to define a typical Swiss woman is not an easy task to do. When it comes to their looks, though, it is easy to notice that a large portion of the Swiss women have a very bright skin color.
This is due to a presence of German genes in this nationality. In accordance to this, most of them have beautiful blond hair and blue eyes. Brunettes really are a minority in Switzerland.
Women of Switzerland are unique because of their confidence in their beauty.
You’ll rarely see a Swiss woman wear a lot of make-up and have an unusual hair color.
They steer towards being natural and carry their delicate facial features with pride.
The majority of them have lean figures, too. Some of the world’s most popular models are actually from Switzerland. Swiss women body type is a piece of art!
It is known worldwide that Switzerland has some of the best health care systems in the world.
Due to this, Switzerland is second in the world in life expectancy rates for both men (81.2 years of age) and women (85.2 years of age).
That means that you can hardly find healthier woman than a Swiss woman.
Swiss people, generally speaking, easily get sunburnt, because of their bright skin. There are no other typical health problems for the Swiss.
However, lots of women are prone to mental and behavioural disorders and other chronic diseases, and, according to the World Health Organization, this is only going to increase in the future.
One of the main reasons for this is their hard-working attitude, and their orientation towards careers.
Even though you might think that there is no better place to live in than in Switzerland, the Swiss are above the European average in the suicide rate.
Being oriented to their professional life, Swiss women tend to forget to rest and relax, causing them to be stressed out, resulting in a high rate of mental diseases.
3. How stylish are they?
It would only be obvious to say that, to complement to their beauty, Swiss women are stylish by nature.
Switzerland is not really what you would call a fashion capital, but that doesn’t mean Swiss girls don’t care about fashion and style.
They dress pretty much like normal European girls, but, because of a unique climate, we will have to divide what girls in Switzerland wear in the winter and in the summer.
Summers in Switzerland tend to be very hot, and winters are usually cold and snowy.
Women in Switzerland, in general, dress appropriately, comfortably and efficiently. I will try to explain the way they dress in a few points:
First things first, one of the most important things about Swiss style is to dress in many layers. Women usually wear T-shirts, light-weight long sleeve shirts, sweatshirts, and coats.
Why is it like that? It’s not because it can get very cold in the winters, but because the weather can change multiple times throughout the day.
Swiss fashion is based on clean and simple, yet elegant dressing.
One of the Swiss women stereotypes is that Swiss women tend to lean more to the comfortable aspect of style, so they wear big coats and scarves, looking like walking sleeping bags, and this certainly is a thing you’ll see in Switzerland more than once.
4. Facial beauty
I have already mentioned that there are plenty of beautiful Swiss girls around, like models for example, but there are some exceptions in their beautiful facial looks.
Swiss girls are prettier than German, but still by far not the prettiest in Europe. However, if you absolutely love blondes, you will have a lot to choose from.
Pretty Swiss girls usually have adorable bright colored eyes.
Typical Swiss women have strong, sharp facial lines and thin and bright eyebrows.
Typical Swiss girls like to show off their natural beauty and don’t wear too much make-up.
One thing to keep in mind is that there are a lot of people of other nationalities living in Switzerland, so I can’t say that all of Swiss women have the same facial features, or that every single woman in Switzerland is beautiful in the same way.
Additional Rating – The Tinder 1000 Swipe Rating
On top of the four physical trait ratings for Swiss women, we have also created our own additional rating from the Swiss girls we see on Tinder. We call it the 1,000 Tinder swipe rating. It is extremely accurate and gives a very good overall picture of the single women and how attractive they are.
This is how it works.
We swiped through 1000 different profiles in all of the major cities of Switzerland and took note of how many beautiful women there are. We jotted down how many 8’s, 9’s and 10’s there are based on their profile pictures. Here is a quick breakdown.
- 0-100 is poor
- 100-200 is OK
- 200-300 is Good
- 300 – 400 Is Incredible
- 400 + is Mindblowing (There are only a few of these)
With a Tinder Plus subscription, you can teleport to anywhere in the world and swipe for yourself. Find out more below In the section about how to meet Swiss women. Also, make sure to check out my other country guides to see how their Tinder scores compare.
What Different Personality Traits Swiss Women Have from Other Women
Here we are! Now that you know how sexy Swiss women can be, it is time to talk about their personalities and what are Swiss girls like in relationships, from my experience in international dating.
I am repeating the same thing I said about their physical traits: there are no two identical women in the world, so do not take any of this for granted, okay?
Let’s jump right in!
1. Do they like going out and having fun?
I’ve had many different experiences with Swiss women in the past regarding this question.
Girls of Switzerland are really hard to get, keep that in mind. They can seem very ignorant sometimes.
As I have mentioned, Swiss chicks are very career-oriented and don’t really enjoy wasting time and money on crazy parties and drinking all night, because, you guessed it, “they have to work tomorrow”.
On the other hand, I’ve been surprised by how outgoing they can be if stimulated properly.
Every single person on Earth likes having fun and spending time with other people, because we are social beings.
Swiss girls need some talking into, though.
I’ve had multiple situations where I had to work really hard to talk a girl into going to a party with me and it turned out to be one of the best times of her life.
Don’t give up easily on trying to take your Swiss girl out if you end up being in a relationship with one eventually.
Swiss girls love staying inside with men and spending their time alone with you.
If you are an outgoing person and don’t really enjoy staying home, you will have some trouble with Swiss women.
Be very careful! Listen to her, do as she likes and keep her pleased. She will be grateful and pay you back in one way or another.
2. Chill factor
In this part, I am going to give you an answer to a very sensitive question: What are Swiss women like in relationships?
Well, to be honest, in my past experience, I have met a few Swiss chicks with extremely different behavior in relationships.
Mainly, they were quite calm and didn’t start fights for no reason. On some rare occasions, I found them to be a little bit boring with their calmness.
Dating Swiss girls could eventually become a routine if you don’t try to spice things up every once in a while with an exotic trip, or something similar.
Being very confident in themselves, they rarely get jealous of other girls, so you are free to have female friends when dating a Swiss girl.
Swiss women really are chill for the most part and will not cause you any unexpected stress in life.
Swiss women think they are the best and deserve only the best.
They are not famous for their loyalty in any way.
Generally, people in Switzerland are not considered to be happily married. Their divorce rate is one of the highest in the world.
We cannot blame it all on Swiss women, but they certainly play a crucial role in Switzerland’s high divorce rate.
Being oriented towards their careers and work life, they think that having a family is not going to help in achieving their career goals. That might be the reason why they are so ignoring men and think they can do it all by themselves.
Due to the fact that they are very hard to get, you might get the impression that they are not even into achieving something in their love life.
The lack of emotions is one of the main reasons Swiss women are not considered to be very loyal. There is nothing you can do to keep them with you when nothing binds them to your relationship.
Swiss women usually get into a midlife crisis in their 50s. They realize that they have only done something with their career and, as you would expect, start to feel lonely.
Of course, there is an exception for each rule (if you could call this a rule).
For example, my cousin married a Swiss girl and he has been happily married for 20 years.
So, to conclude, if you date a Swiss girl, there is just a little bit more of a chance she is not going to be very connected to you.
4. Good as Mothers
As I have mentioned multiple times, dating a Swiss woman might be hopeless if you are looking to build a strong family with her.
What are Swiss women like when it comes to parenthood? Well, there are divided opinions on this topic, but I will try to sum it up for you.
There are very few women who have children between the age of 24 and 35. They’ll usually use excuses like “I am still young to be a mother”, or “I don’t want anything to stand in the way of my career”.
Some Swiss women wait until they are 40+ years old to try to have a baby. We all know that this is very hard, and that might be one of the reasons for their generally poor mental health.
If they manage to find a partner who is somewhat similar to them, a lot of Swiss women will get into a relationship for the sole purpose of having a child.
This doesn’t really give an answer to what they are like as mothers.
Children born in Switzerland generally live a nice life, because of the high living standard in the country. However, there have been many cases where children feel neglected, due to their parents trying to compensate for their absence with money.
This is in no way extreme. Swiss women tend to give their children anything they want in life and spoil them, just as any parent would.
Like I said, my cousin is happily married to a Swiss woman and they have two adorable, very polite girls.
In conclusion, Swiss women are going to be satisfying mothers to your children.
5. Meeting and Talking to New People
When I was “on the hunt” for Swiss girls, I figured out that they do not like to be approached when they are out with their friends. This is also one of the more popular Swiss girl stereotypes.
People in Switzerland usually hang out with a tight group of people, so-called the inner circle. It is common in the Swiss dating culture to date people someone from your inner circle introduced you to.
Approaching a girl in a bar in Switzerland is characterized as inappropriate, so I don’t recommend doing such things.
The best way to meet hot Swiss girls is if you know somebody from their inner circle. Get somebody to introduce you to them.
When reading this you might get the impression that single Swiss girls don’t like meeting new people. This doesn’t turn out to be the truth, though.
After the initial contact with other people around you, if you make a good enough impression, I believe that most Swiss girls would like to get to know you better, because they can get very curious about men.
I will give you one tip that has worked for me multiple times. When you start talking, do not uncover every detail about one thing that she says seems interesting to her about you. Keep some of the story for later.
Out of curiosity, when you ask them out, you have a very good chance of actually going on a date and finishing that interesting story.
6. Are they romantic
There is a stereotype that Swiss girls do not like to rush in relationships. It is quite the opposite actually. They like to take things slow. This is very common for girls in central Europe like in Germany, Austria, as well as Switzerland.
Personal space is something that Swiss women want to be respected. As I have mentioned, they are very independent of men, and tend to keep it that way.
Swiss girls value intimacy after some time you have spent together.
In general, it is common for both Swiss men and women to be reserved in relationships, and that might cause a couple to get distant.
I recommend being patient with expressing emotions to a Swiss girlfriend, because they can get a bit scared off with that. We’ll talk more about this and other tips for dating a Swiss woman.
Are Swiss girls romantic?
Well, I definitely wouldn’t say they are the most romantic girls on the planet, but if you are patient enough, and respect her personal space, they certainly have a lot to offer in this field.
So, take things slow, let everything settle, and make her feel independent.
This is a tough one for all of us men. If you are looking for a “hit and run” don’t get your hopes up with Swiss girls.
Just as I said before, they are mature, like to take things slow and want to be respected.
Getting a Swiss girl to let you sleep with her can get pretty tiring. You will have to be very patient and, do not by any means try to push things if you see that she is not interested in you.
Word spreads very quickly among Swiss women and you will not have a good reputation if they feel offended.
Now I guess you want to know what are Swiss women like in bed like and are thinking that they must be boring when they play so hard to get, right?
Well I’d say you would be wrong if you thought that.
So, what can we say about Swiss girls in bed?
I think it would be enough if I just say that the bad girl they have been hiding inside them all the time comes to life. They like to experiment, and enjoy satisfying the other person during intercourse.
Swiss women in bed are a thing you wouldn’t want to miss, and that’s one of the best things about them in my opinion.
8. Gringo Card – How Likely Are They to Date Foreigners
Most marriages in Switzerland are mixed so the only logical conclusion is that this is not going to be a problem for you, as a foreigner.
Swiss people are used to spending time with people of other nationalities, since there are so many of them I Switzerland.
If you think that you might be somewhat interesting to a Swiss girl just because you are a foreigner, don’t get your hopes up.
They are pretty used to foreign people, as I said, and you’ll have to win them over with some other qualities.
So the conclusion is: being a foreigner is in no means a barrier to dating Swiss women. But it is neither a thing they will fight over.
Swiss women are open to dating foreigners and they are strong willing, no wonder the country ranks high in the area of women’s rights.
If you are considering dating any of these gorgeous women, have it at the back of your mind that they are very independent.

Pros and Cons of Dating Swiss Women
Now you know how to meet a Swiss girl!
This is going to be an all-around conclusion of everything we have talked about so far, so go get your popcorn ready, and settle in. Swiss women dating tips in 3,2,1…and go!
1. She will not be too much of a headache
As I mentioned, Swiss girls are a bit passive and don’t cause too much trouble in the relationship.
She will not be jealous and demanding, and that means a lot less worries in life.
We could say that they are very confident in what they want and are not going to expect from you to read their minds.
2. She is going to be highly independent
You are not going to be her sugar daddy for sure. There is a better chance she might be your sugar mommy, my friend.
Swiss woman love being independent and pursuing their goals in professional life. And I believe that could be listed both as a pro and as a con, but I’ll explain this a little later.
You will not have to take care of her financially and professionally. In these fields, she can do it all by herself and that is good news for you.
3. They are beautiful
In my opinion, beauty passes after a certain amount of time and that is why I listed this pro as the last one.
However, this is a factor I could not exclude when talking about dating Swiss girls.
You will admire their beauty when you see them for yourself… Stay tuned for later, I have some surprises for you…
1. There is a good chance she might be reserved
Dating Swiss women takes time and patience. It might seem like a tunnel with no exit, but there is light waiting for you in the end.
Striking up a conversation with Swiss women is going to be challenging. Be careful and try to see if she is interested in actually talking to you. Never be pushy.
2. They are not the most loyal in the world
If you are after a bit older Swiss women then you have to take care if she only wants a child with you or she really loves you and wants to be with you.
I have already mentioned how older women in Switzerland want to meet someone for the sole purpose of having a baby, so be aware of that.
When it comes to younger women, they tend to be reserved and do not express emotions – in other words, they get distant from you and your relationship.
3. They can get obsessed with their professional life
There is a very strong chance you are not going to be the most important thing in her life, because of her work.
Striving to their independence, they focus way too much on their careers and forget to enjoy life and live it for what really matters.
This is something you’ll have to deal with when it comes to dating Swiss women.
How to Make a Swiss Girl Fall in Love with You

If you have already fallen for a Swiss girl, you will have to support her in this field, and she is going to be thankful for that.
3. Language barrier
There have been a lot of situations where speaking native language really helped with women.
This is very unique for Switzerland. People speak different languages (French, German, Italian) in different parts of the country. If you are an American man looking for Swiss women make sure to learn the basics, at least, this is going to help you a lot.
