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.29

Swiss pins are 4 mm diameter and 18.4 mm apart. You can thus also use insulated 4 mm banana plugs.

Cheers, Theo
