Re: Urgent advice for making friends in switzerland

We've moved countries multiple times and only in Switzerland hit an actual road block finding friends. We're very sociable and like to have people over or go out, so it was a weird experience. However, we started joining different clubs, which really helped. My wife sometimes goes to meetings of professional women group, which is a good place to build your female network. There are also running clubs, walking clubs, etc. and they are often filled with expats who speak English. And finally there are also friends of friends, and the friends of friend's friends

Good luck!
