Hello Arno and Annika,
I was informed by a friend of mine about requirement of a separate visa to visit Swiss, even if we have Schengen visa. But according to my understanding this was the case a few years ago and now Swiss is also included in the Schengen area. Therefore no additional visa is required, even for tourist schengen visa. Please correct me if I am wrong.
