Re: American needs help from someone in Zurich or Hergiswil

The phone number is right: 011 gets you the international operator from the US, 41 is the Swiss country code, 79 is the prefix for Swisscom mobile numbers. The last 7 digits are the number proper.

The address is:

Bleicherweg 64
CH-8002 Zurich

Bleicherweg is the street name, 64 the street number, CH-8002 the zipcode. Plop the address into google maps and you can see what's there. Zurich is the name of the city and also of the canton that contains the eponymous city.

Re: American needs help from someone in Zurich or Hergiswil

Re Zürich city and Zürich Canton. The Cantons are, I suppose the equivalent of States in the US. Zürich is the 'capital' of the canton of the same name. A bit like the USA but it's all much, much smaller! We even have half-cantons!

How can you tell it's a mobile number?
The "79" as "area code".

Naten (barely) beat me to it

Thanks, I tried that too with the name, company name, city, and phone number in quotes.

The number I was given is 0114179xxxxxxx. To tell you the truth, I don't even really understand the number, because I've never had to dial international before. You guys would know better than me, but I think the break down is 011 41 79xxxxxxxx. I think 011 is the country code, I guess 41 is something like an American area code, and the rest is the actual phone number. Is 9 the correct amount of digits for a Swiss phone number?
- 011 is the US exit code
- 41 is the entrance code for Switzerland
- 79 is a kind of area-code, in fact a mobile phone of Swisscom
- xxx xx xx is the actual phone number

011 is the access code to make an international phone call in the US. You wouldn't give the 011 to anyone other than someone in the US.
41 is the country code & 79 is the mobile carrier code. The last 6 numbers are the phone number.

Have you dialed this number? What do you need this information for? What do you mean you are trying to "catch" someone?
Thanks for the info. I didn't realize mobile companies had their own number designations over there.

Sorry about the confusion, I meant I'm trying to catch, or contact, someone on this forum who lives in Zurich so they're familiar with the city.

I know nothing about Switzerland, so maybe you can help me out. Is a canton in Switzerland similar to a state in the U.S.? I thought Zurich was a city.
Yes, canton is equivalent to state. It is kind of like New York. I think many people in the world would be surprised to find out that there is a New York that is not just New York City.

Don't keep us in suspense. When do we have to start working on the Hergiswil one?

Hello, and thanks for reading this. I live in the United States, and I am trying to verify a business address for someone in Zurich, and a personal address for someone in Hergiswil. If anyone can help me out, or suggest another way I could do this, please let me know. Any help is much appreciated.
What bussiness are you looking for? By any chance you received a great offer to either be an Au pair or have a great job in such company? If so, be very careful because most of cases great (almost unbelieveble offers) turns to be from people from other country (not switzerland) and they promiss they will refound your trip expenses but first you need to pay to their travel agency... etc, if thats not the case, could you give us more information in order to help you better? I live in Zurich Kanton and city and google is my BFF so i might help you but need to release more info.

It's OK. We all know that people don't actually read the posts 'round here.

I'm glad you & Magnum did though. I'm feeling my less neglected.

Re: American needs help from someone in Zurich or Hergiswil

Wow, you guys are great. Thanks for all of the help.

The company I was looking for was Sigalus AG in Zurich. Short of someone actually going to that address and verifying that it's legitimate, I think there is enough info to confirm it's actually there. I just hope it's an office and not a PO Box.

I'm definitely not going to be an au pair, Mary Poppins I am not. But thanks for the warning.

I think the Hergiswil number will be tougher to find. I was looking for a reverse number lookup directory in Switzerland, but couldn't find one. The number down there is 41 41 632 4265.
