Switzerland has the most "European" solution in that the two-pin Europlug fits perfectly into the three-pin Swiss sockets. So, you won't need an adaptor for these.are you sure? Last time I tried in the hotel to put in my regular German power plugs, it didn't work out. Either the socket was a bit too small, or the distance between both pins was different.
Sorry to dwell on this. The German two pin-plugs with female earth don't fit because the pins are thicker than the holes in the plastic shields, but the unearthed *Europlugs* and similar ones do fit.
See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europlug and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AC_power_plugs_and_sockets#Swiss_SEV_1011_.28Type_J.29Swiss pins are 4 mm diameter and 18.4 mm apart. You can thus also use insulated 4 mm banana plugs.
