saw it coming, when he more than 120 years ago coined the
term Limmat-Athen . He of course had a rather abstract and literary aspect in mind but would have been amused to see Greeks immigrating to Zürich

While I am sure that there ARE, I have to emphasisize that Herrliberg and Erlenbach are outer Suburbs of Zürich and well connected to downtown

Re: New Greeks in Zurich

Hi all,

I can see that the last post on this thread was a long time ago, but maybe i can keep it going.

I am Greek and my husband English/Scotish.

We will be moving to Switcherland, the job offer is in Zurich.
We are looking to move to Aargau, or somewhere near Zurich but closer to country side with good schools (state schools) for our children. Any advise?

Are there any GReeks in Aargau? Any families with young childrent to give us advice on choosing areas for schools?

Many thanks in advance, we really need your help!!!!

Re: New Greeks in Zurich

Ah, we looked in Zug! It looks really nice.


Is it a good place for children there? Are state schools good?
From what we've read so far, we figured we have to chose the place we'll live based on the schools of the area...

Re: New Greeks in Zurich

You should come check it out for yourselves, in short though: the smallest canton (35k people), high quality schools which include 2 International Schools and as safe as it gets.

Kids here walk to school from the age of 5, it's super safe and there's a abundance of schools to choose from.

Rents are expensive compared to ZH but taxes are the lowest in the country. Search the forum for all the details but in short it's a small, boring canton with great lakes/mountains and quality of life for families. Just expect to be bored to death if you want to have any sort of social life. Even on the weekends it's pretty quiet everywhere but ZH is only 25 minutes by train, same for Lucerne. Train connections are great.

We've lived in Scotland for years before coming here. If you guys happen to come by on a weekend we can meet for a coffee by the lake.

Thanks so much for all the information! Where did you live in Scotland?
Zug sounds nice, if Zurich is so close as you're saying, then social life shouldn't be a problem...
Can I ask a couple of things you might be able to help with?
How about health insurance and hospitals..Is there a hospital in Zug and is it good?
flat hunting: is the area of baar good, and if not where should we look?
thanks again for all your help...finding it so hard to decide whether, living near work in Zurich is best, or somewhere by the country side, when we've never been to the place and don't know what it looks like....it's just feels like i'm picking things blindfolded...
