General Info / Cost of living

The Official Welcome to Switzerland.

www.credit-suisse.com/research > Swiss economy > regions - this shows cost of living comparison between cantons.

www.credit-suisse.com/research  Swiss Economy  Regions

An excellent thread with a lot of information for newcomers. Don't worry about the title! Much is relevant for other areas too.

Basic Information for Newcomers to Switzerland - several links to other Sites with useful facts and helpful hints

Family Information for New People to Switzerland - loads of links to other organisations.

Resources for those living in or moving to CH...

Lawyer explains various Legal Topics on World Radio Switzerland - links

Cost of living - help needed to get it right

Another Cost of Living Site - you can have a couple of looks, but after that you have to register to get more info. I think they hope for feed-back to be able to increase the amount of accurate information as well. http://www.numbeo.com/common/

Seven other Cost of Living Threads to Look at.

Sorting out a Budget - in German and French

The complete guide to bills and what happens if you don't pay them
