In any case this topic has been hashed, re-hashed, discussed, re-discussed, over discussed, re-iterated, re-introduced to death!

Fixing a currency exchange CHF to Euros

Currency exchange - pips and exchange rates

Where to best change CHF to Euro? Airport or local bank?

Large FX transfers, all at once or average over months?

CHF/EUR exchange rate on goods on order

Change foreign currency in Bern

1. Open a swissquote account. Transfer the money into your EUR account with them. Make an exchange into CHF on their online platform. Transfer the money out into your reference account.
Cost: 0.45% spread (i.e EUR68) to trade and maybe small fee CHF2.- or so to transfer the money out.

2. Use one of the many online FX platforms, involves the same kind of mechanism. Names I am aware of include: transferwise, currencyfair and fairfx.
