The Swiss Embassy moved from the edge of the Financial District to Pier 17, next to the new Exploratorium at Pier 15. The Address is the Consulate General of Switzerland, Pier 17, The Embarcadero #600, San Francisco, CA 94111. Currently the embassy has over 33,000 Swiss citizens living on the west coast and also represents Switzerland’s interests in San Francisco and provides services to Swiss nationals in the States of California (CA), Alaska (AK), Arizona (AZ), Colorado (CO), Hawaii (HI), Idaho (ID), Montana (MT), Nevada (NV), New Mexico (NM), Oregon (OR), Utah (UT), Washington (WA), and Wyoming (WY).

The embassy also works with Swiss companies and the U.S. to enter into deals to sell and manufacture products. The embassy works with startup companies and has had good results over the years. They do not deal in vacation packages but do have travel brochures for air, land, lake and train trips all over the country.

One may become a member of the embassy and receive emails indicating the exhibits and talks that are scheduled in the future. I have attended meetings of interest to me including one on the latest robots and how they may be used in homes or hospitals with an actual demonstration of the robots in action. I also went to a presentation on the Hubble Telescope and the future in space exploration. So as far as I am concerned, this is a great source of knowledge and it is free!
