The legal age for smoking is 16. Smoking in public buildings and transport as well as in restaurants and bars became illegal on 1 May, 2010. However, in the canton of Zurich, restaurants and bars are allowed to have a separate and served smoking room (fumoir). But only a few venues have installed one - we have marked them with the smoking sign in our restaurant and nightlife sections. So if you are a smoker, do as the others do and step outside for a puff - the perfect occasion to get in touch with complete strangers. Note that the law is different in every canton.
