Enter and stay in Switzerland for a few days

I may be required to see my future PhD supervisor in Switzerland within the next few months to have the discussion on my research and other agreement stuffs. I'm an Asian by nationality and currently live in Germany, so I have a German visa. My question is, can I enter and stay temporally in Switzerland without having Switzerland visa? I am not sure how long I will stay there for the above mentioned purpose but I would say it won't be any longer than 5 days.

Your German visa covers all of Europe except the UK and all of Ireland. Bring your passport and proof you live in Germany and you can stay for up to 90 days in any 6 month period, with no problems, see Schengen regulation.

Re: Enter and stay in Switzerland for a few days

I have heard about Schengen visa, however as I see in the above link, it appears that this type of visa has "Gultig fuer: Schengen Staaten" printed on top most field of it. When I see my own visa, it's "Gultig fuer: Deutschland". I wonder if this means this visa only applies in Germany? Or the Schengen validity is implicit?

Ask at your Ausländeramt, it is implied, as you live in the Schengen area.
