Swiss Post Office Box

I will be spending three months in Switzerland this coming Winter, but I will not have a permanent address to have my mail sent. Is there a way to get a Swiss P.O. box without actually living in the city? If not, does anyone know an alternative?

Thanks,
Robert

Re: Swiss Post Office Box

The Swiss PO Box facility was free but awfully difficult to obtain, even for B permit holders.

Post Box - for free?

They do however have this:

Re: Swiss Post Office Box

That looks to be exactly what I need. The chances of me actually receiving physical mail are very slim, but while I'm in Switzerland it is more convenient than having everything sent up to friends in Germany or back home to the US. The price is also right where I want/need it to be!

Re: Swiss Post Office Box

The Post Lagernd service works very well, I used it for 15 years as a business address, your post is available as soon as the PO doors open.

Address: Mr A. Smith, Post Lagernd or Post Restante, 1234 Swiss Town.
