Update (June 2020) Edit

As of Jan 2020, there are 2202 municipalities in Switzerland (down from 2212 a year earlier). As of June 2020, there should be 4 less (5399 Verzasca) and the total should be 2198.

This means that there is a differential of 16 municipalities that are listed in Wikidata as current but are not actually current municipalities. There is a list of recent mutations of Swiss municipalities published by Amtliches Gemeindeverzeichnis der Schweiz (Q480253) here: hist. Gemeindeverzeichnis.

    • Update: the above mentioned errors are now fixed and the list has been checked against the official publication. For the final query that adds 3 territories that are not municipalities but have BSF numbers see
