The Swiss franc is used as a reserve currency around the world, because of the perceived stability of the currency and the Swiss banking system and is currently ranked rarely 5th or 6th in value held as reserves after the United States dollar, the euro, the Japanese yen and the pound sterling.
However, the share of all foreign exchange reserves held in Swiss francs has historically been well below 0.5%. The daily trading market turnover of the franc however, ranked fifth, or about 3.4%, among all currencies.

   Gemmi Pass is the most famous of all high mountain passes across the Bernese Alps connecting Leukerbad (on the south) in the canton of Valais with Kandersteg (on the north) in the canton of Bern. The pass itself lies within the canton of Valais, at a height of 2,270 metres above sea level. The main trail reaches 2,322 metres.

  - The pass is mentioned in the Sherlock Holmes story The Final Problem. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson cross the pass on their way to Meiringen, where Sherlock Holmes has his famous meeting with Professor Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls.
  - The pass is described by Guy de Maupassant in his short-story L'Auberge.

  The pass lies between the Daubenhorn (2942 m.) in the west and the Rinderhorn (3448 m.) in the east.
Although the pass cannot be traversed by road, it is still directly accessible by cablecar from Leukerbad. Alternatively, the pass can be reached by a two-hour dramatic hike on foot.
It should take about two hours from Leukerbad to reach the pass area along this steep and winding hiking path.
From Kandersteg a cable car gives access to the Sunnbüel area (1,934 m), 10 km north of the pass, allowing hikers to cross the pass on a wide and easy trail.
The pass itself is also used as a vantage point, because of the view of some major peaks in the Pennine Alps, such as the Dom, Matterhorn, Weisshorn and Dent Blanche.

Swiss francs can be purchased outside Switzerland from foreign currency brokers, including some banks. Switzerland is outside the euro currency system, although euros are generally accepted there, and the Swiss franc has generally proved stronger and more secure than other currencies including the euro and the U.S. dollar in the first decade of the 21st century.
