RSS and Calendar Feeds
The Swiss National Bank currently offers RSS feeds in the following areas:
What is RSS?
RDF Site Summary (RSS) is an XML-based format for web content distribution. The Swiss National Bank website uses RSS 1.0.
RSS is a practical way to keep up to date with the publications on the SNB website. RSS feeds automatically alert you to new and changed content in the subject areas of interest to you.
What do I need to use RSS?
You need a 'feed reader' – a program which enables you to subscribe to RSS feeds and which formats the results. Many feed readers are desktop programs, others are web-based. Some are free of charge.
How can I subscribe to the SNB RSS feeds?
Click on the orange RSS button and follow the instructions provided by your feed reader.
What is RSS-CB?
RSS-CB is an extension to RSS which provides structured information that can be used by applications.

The Swiss National Bank currently offers calendar feeds for the following years:
Feeds are automatically updated. New feeds are available for subscription as soon as first calendar entry for a certain year is published.
What are calendar feeds?
Calendar feeds are based on iCalendar standard (also known as iCal or ICS), a computer file format for sharing and exchanging calendar information over the internet.
iCalendar is a practical way to keep up-to-date with the time schedule on the SNB website. iCalendar feeds automatically insert, update or delete calendar entries in your preferred calendar software.
What do I need to use iCalendar?
You need an application which enables you to subscribe to iCalendar feeds and which formats the results. There is an (incomplete) list of applications which support iCalendar here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_applications_with_iCalendar_support
