Thinking of moving to switzerland!

My boyfriend and I are considering a move from Dublin to Swizerland (most likely to Basel). I am wondering what the social scene in Basel is like, and whether there is easy access to outdoors activities (hiking, horse-riding) from Basel. Also I have read some funny posts about restrictions on toilet flushing/ doing laundry in some of the apartments....is this the norm?? Also,how possible is it to rent a small house in the countryside (even over the border in France),, or am I completely dreaming?!

Thanks in advance!

Re: Thinking of moving to switzerland!

Integration and subsequent well-being, contentment etc depends on your professional skills and possibilities of employment, your capacity to adapt to a very different culture and your language skills.

Basel has an interesting anglo-saxon community due to employment in the pharma industry, nevertheless there is a very big difference with Dublin.

Why not come for a vacation for few weeks (at least 3) before deciding ?
