What benefits does my swiss passport give me while traveling europe?

Hi, I am planning on traveling through Europe (and Switzerland) next year. I have a New Zealand passport, and a Swiss passport. I am wondering if the Swiss passport will make my travels thoughout Europe easier, with perhaps extended visas, working visas, or anything else along those lines.
thanks

I heard because switzerland didn't sign the EU, we were not entitled to the benefits they get. So I will be able to travel and work throughout Europe with no issues? and stay longer than a visitirs visa?

With your Swiss passport you have the freedom of Europe !

Switzerland joined Schengen so you can move freely without border checks amongst most mainland Europe. They also have a bilateral agreement on residency and working, so you are pretty free to go anywhere/do anything.

I'm sure there are some rules, but certainly much easier than with just your Kiwi pass.
