Can Wii U games be played on the Nintendo Switch?

Is it possible to play games from the Nintendo Wii U on the Switch?

No, the Wii U uses DVD discs for the games and the switch does not have a disc drive. I believe the online store used for both consoles is different preventing you from being able to access content bought from different consoles. This may change in the future if Nintendos networking team get their shit together.
