Addressing formats
Because Switzerland is a multi-lingual country different addressing formats are inevitable.

However, what are common are the four-digit postal codes that are always written on the same line as the town or city, to its left.

Numbers of buildings are written after the name of the street.

No punctuation is preferred.
