I don't think I've been to a major grocery store in Europe that didn't have soy milk. (And rice milk, and almond milk, and...) Kind of surprised me, actually.
In all the countries you have listed, soy milk is easy enough to find; most supermarkets will sell it. In France, you should be able to find it in Super U, Auchan, and Carrefour, and maybe in some Aldi and Lidl too if they're big enough. In Switzerland, I got many links to Reform Haus; you can find those in most of the northern part of the country. In ...
This is the survival vegan tip I learnt on my travels: whenever you arrive to a country where normal supermarkets don't have soy milk (which is rare, most of them do), go to an Asian supermarket or try to find an asian neighbourhood (chinese, vietnamese, etc) and you'll get those things there.

The supermarkets provide other plant based milk (e.g. milk from rice, oats or almonds), too.
Yes, I've seen it (and various other non-diary milks) in markets (even smallish ones) in the UK, the Netherlands, and France — coincidentally, because I don't actually drink soy milk. So I'm thinking if it's so common that I remember seeing it even though I don't look for it, it must be fairly common. It may be useful to take a list with you of ...
In the UK, there are a wide variety of non dairy "milks" for sale, and all chain coffee shops offer soy. There are also lactose free dairy milks in stores. Unsure about the other countries in the list, but would anticipate major supermarkets stocking it
