Daily newspapers with the highest circulation in Switzerland in 2017

This statistic shows a ranking of daily newspapers with the highest average circulation in Switzerland in 2017. That year, 20 Minuten (20 Minutes in German), based in the German-speaking part of Switzerland, sold roughly 451,176 copies. The daily newspaper was launched on the Swiss print media market at the end of 1999. The target audience was defined by the publishers as young, urban and living in the Zurich region. Besides Zurich, 20 Minuten also has editions published in Bern, Basel, Luzern and St. Gallen. Second in the ranking is Blick am Abend (Evening View in German) with 253,635 copies sold. The tabloid paper has been on the market since 2008 and is distributed in the same regions as 20 Minuten, as well as in Zug and its agglomerations. Third in the ranking is 20 Minuten in West Switzerland with 174,248 copies sold. The Swiss print media market shows constant competition between the paid newspaper and free daily newspapers. Total circulation of paid newspapers, for example, has been declining since the mid-1990s.
