Quaestor Vexatius Sinusitus, who is about to expose the Roman governor's creative accountancy, has been poisoned. Can Getafix brew an antidote?

Only is Asterix and Obelix find a certain flower for the druid's potion in Helvetia. What with bank safes, cuckoo hourglasses, yodeling and holes in the cheese, they're soon on a real Helvetian roll.

What the druids have to say about Asterix in Switzerland

Following a suggestion by Georges Pompidou, who was then Prime Minister of France, Asterix goes off in this album to explore Switzerland. In the meantime, the man who had suggested the destination to René had become President. Once the authors had become institutions, they did not, however, lose their talent.

In the English translation, the French Antar man (Antar being a garage company) in the ancient petrol station on page 20 is replaced by the Michelin man. Petrol or tyres, it's all a choice of trademarks.
