Le Temps

French-speaking Switzerland’s leading newspaper

«Le Temps» is the only french-language newspaper in Switzerland with a national reach. The editorial focus of this quality newspaper established in 1998 is on politics, business, finance, culture and lifestyle.

It is not without reason that «Le Temps» is considered to be the «NZZ» of French-speaking Switzerland: With its thoroughly researched and credible content, this Geneva-based newspaper, which also has a strong presence in the region, acts as an indispensable source of information for very many opinion-formers and decision-makers. The paper is also a force to be reckoned with in the Internet: Articles in letemps.ch are now read by over 7 million times on a considerable number of platforms.

In addition, «Le Temps Week-end» is published every Saturday. The first section of this Saturday publication deals with current events and also contains an «in-depth interview» with fascinating people. The second section «Entre-Temps» contains about 20 pages dedicated to topics surrounding society, psychology, philosophy, literature and gastronomy – examples of superb journalism aimed at a demanding and affluent readership.

«Le Temps» is an ideal medium for the targeted positioning and upgrading of brands in French-speaking Switzerland.
