If I convert that to chf at today's rate 1 : 1.04 chf), to make it all one currency
Please completely disregard the current exchange rate; it is not the result of economic fundamentals but of animal psychology. Do not expect this to hold - I hear stories from the days where the exchange rate was 1:1.70.

Your better bet is to really drive matters from the perspective of what you want to buy with your money - i.e. your local cost of living. One approach could be to calculate for-like-living expenses. This would then include items like rent (very high), car insurance (ok), going out (very expensive), public transport, food (meat-happy? Pay up!).

It's all about your own lifestyle, which will leave you with more or less savings.
