Just moved here..how do you meet people here??

HI,
I'm new to Zurich, I moved here from California three months ago. How does one go about meeting people here? I work for an ICT company, I'm here alone and enjoy doing most everything the area has to offer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Well darlin you've just found the answer to your own question check out the social thread there is always something going on. Put out your feelers with other people on here and if there is nothing to your taste already organized maybe you could suggest something different and see how people react. Good luck and welcome.

That would be great. Where are you living? I'm outside the city about 12 minutes and work in Dubendorf. What should we plan?

I'm in Thalwil, which is south on the west side of the lake about ten or fifteen minutes.

Lots of possibilities....There's a beer garden in Zurich right near Bellevue that I've been wanting to check out. Haven't been up the Uetliberg yet. Taking the Lake Zurich ships on a nice day can be fun. I'm sure there's more.

URL for the beer garden (click on "Sommergarten" for information). It is open from 11:00 to 23:00 daily. Half litre of Hürlimann is 6.50. Shall we try for that, if it's nice weather?

Re: Just moved here..how do you meet people here??

Hi guys,

I want to join you on May 19th! I didn't see your event on the calendar -- did you post it? I am another American looking to meet people. I'm from California, too. I moved here with my husband for his job. I will start a new job as soon as I get my permit!! Until then, I have plenty of time to meet up during the week. PM me if interested.

Simone

Re: Just moved here..how do you meet people here??

You guys cal always try the hash , its a good way to meet noth expats and locals in a relaxed setting, the hash is the Hash House Harriers founded origionally in Kuala Lumper over 60 myears ago and now to be found in all major cities around the world, no membership or joining just show up and join in the fun , its mainly about jogging and socialising but walking is always an option.

Here is the link for the Swiss groups,

http://www.harrier.eu.org/

www.schaffhausen-h3.com


It really is a great way to meet people.

Don't have enough time or posts under my belt to post in that forum yet, alas. Can someone else do it?
