To add a couple of comments about ATM's...
In the larger cities, especially at the main stations, the set of ATM's for a big bank may offer machines which give mixed denomination bills, including small and large.
And, in the main stations, the "Kiosks" and "Apertos" -convenience stores do so much business that they can change a 200 CHF bill with no problem. Buy a newspaper or a bottle of water.
They also give Euro's in many cases.
Euros are more easily accepted as cash in the larger cities, but you'll sometimes see menus with CHF and Euros pricing at all sorts of places around Switzerland.
In the countryside, and inn keeper might well take euros but the exchange rate would be less certain. And, as noted, you'll get your change in CHF.
There are still many establishments in Switzerland which are "cash only."
