Looking to meet new people in Zurich

Hello there I've been living in Zurich for 8 months now. I love life here but it would be great to meet new people, so far I'm mainly going out with people from work but it would be great to meet new people outside of the office. I'm female, 33 from the UK.

Re: Looking to meet new people in Zurich

Welcome to EF, Vikkers - glad to hear you like it here in Zurich. You might want to check the Activities section for opportunities to get to know people. I would be happy to get together (send me a PM if you like) but I'm well past the age of clubbing. Have fun expanding your circle of friends!

Re: Looking to meet new people in Zurich

Welcome, vikkers!

Zurich is a great place, and you can meet people easily. You just must not expect people to come to you, as this will not happen. You have to take the initiative.

Just go on www.meetup.com, enter your interest and check out what activities are on. You will find activities in all areas: drinks, hiking, trying restaurant, movies, classical music, other concerts etc. There is something every day, all there is left is for you to actually go. People are welcoming and friendly, and it is your choice to stay in touch.

Have fun!

Re: Looking to meet new people in Zurich

Well, there's a pub quiz every other week at the St. Joseph's Pub out at the Quellenstrasse. I'm usually there with some friends. Seems like a great place to meet people, because, well, I have met quite some great people there.

Re: Looking to meet new people in Zurich

Hi

I am always up for going out if you wanted. I come from UK and work here, and just like you end up only going out with work colleagues!

Always free after work and a few weekends

Re: Looking to meet new people in Zurich

Hey everyone! Recently moved to Zurich and would like to meet new people as well! Have you guys figured out ways of meeting new people? If any of you love coffee, squash, tennis, hot chocolate or going to the cinema we'll be great friends! Haha

Re: Looking to meet new people in Zurich

Hi Guys, been here in Zurich for a while now. Aussie 29yo female. I have a good group of friends but need to expand my network as people tend to come and go quite a bit.

If anyone is keen for a drink in the new year, give me a shout and i hope the newbies are settling in well!

Re: Looking to meet new people in Zurich

Hello
Its the first time ive been on here. Did you manage to meet up? My husband is seconded over here and Im currently not working so wondered if anyone wanted to meet up as I dont yet know anyone and even though Im taking a German course, it would be good to meet some English speaking people for a chat and see how you are finding Zurich. Ive just turned 30 and happy to meet up whenever.

Re: Looking to meet new people in Zurich

Hi there,

I'm also relatively new to Switzerland and keen to make new friends but also need to improve my German. Just wondered if any 'newbies' go to the Zurich meet up on Wednesdays? Don't want to look too stupid turning up if everyone else there is an expert now!
