Re: Renew US Passport and/or obtain Reisedokument für ausländische Personen

And... actually now I am wondering-- do people carry their passports when crossing into Germany for example? I'm not sure I actually brought mine when I went cross-border into Germany, so I might have actually been in violation (whoops)
Yes, you should. In fact you're required to carry it at all times within Switzerland.

You don't technically need it to cross the border either way, and I don't know whether you need to carry it in Germany - you may be fine with your Swiss residency permit - but if you're asked for it when returning you could technically be in trouble for not carrying it.
