We've been using this Swiss-based registrar for many years with no problems. Suddenly their www site is unreachable and our domains are winking off the air.

I thought they were German, not Swiss, they're based in Duesseldorf.

Their Whois gives Germany, but the contact info on the site gives a Swiss address.

The contract you take out is to the Swiss address.

It was originally a German company but I think that it shifted tax domicile to Switzerland. Around the same time, the billing changed from Euros with German VAT to US Dollars.
