Hi,

I have just moved over from London to Zug and looking for some pointers on getting accomodation sorted. Im staying in a serviced apartment untill the end of may. Im open to moving to Zurich which I think could be a better option and potentially easier. Thoughts welcome!!

Thanks

Care to elaborate a touch on what you need dawg? With the amount of information you supplied you make it hard on us - are you looking for a farm house? A house on the lake?

Also check out the related links at the bottom of this thread. www.homegate.ch is a good option.

Re: Zug

You should think about Luzern too, not as big as Zurich, but better, cheaper.

You should think about Lugano - it has the benefit of beginning with the same 2 letters. You could live in Zollikon or Zollikerberg - both of which start with the same letter as Zug - which might help.

Z is also the first letter of the word Zucker (sugar). You won't find brown sugar in Switzerland unless you earn more than 120k , go to lunch before midday and have designed your appartment according to the strict rules of Feng Shui.

That aside, it's 20 minutes from Zug, so same distance. Not as boring as Zug, not so full of smartasses as Zurich.

Thoughts welcome!!
You can tell by all the replies here that there are a lot of 'thoughtful' people around.

Maybe you should start over. Write a nice introduction. Then glance through the Stickies in the Housing Forum which have some of the information which you are looking for. Then do a search and see how many other people have asked similar questions to yours, and check what the answers were. Then, by all means have another go. When you have read the Announcement at the top of the Market Place area, you'll know what you have to do to write your own ad.

Welcome to the Forum.

Re: Zug

It really does depend on what your circumstances are and what is really important to you. We love living in Zug. And no we're not that old either.

We are close to Zurich if we want to go in and close to great countryside. Onlt one of us works in Zug, the other in Adliswil.

After experience of friends just make sure you pick the right place as its a pain in the bum to move!

Any questions please send me a pm.

Re: Zug

We love Zug and want to stay here as long as possible.

The Zuger Amtsblatt is a local newspaper/newletter that has
apartments listed which are not "mass listed" like on
www.homegate.ch

Here is the address:
http://www.amtsblatt.ch/marktblatt/95/9500

Unfortunately, it is in German, but you can probably work out
the translation.

Re: Zug

sorry for lack of detail!! Moved over on my own, im 27. I was looking at getting an apartment for about 2-2500 per month on my own but also would be open to sharing. I have been looking at all the web sites like homegate but there doesn’t seem to be many coming up within Zug for this kind of budget. I have submitted applications for a few but heard nothing back. I think I may have neen naive in thinking i could get this sorted quickly?

Re: Zug

Welcome to the area. Depends on where you look, you will find cheap apartments in the area. Look into Baar, Cham, or Steinhausen and not just focus on Zug.

Can highly recommend the Amtsblatt that HollidayG linked.

Will your company pay for a relocation agent? If so, these people
have pretty good connections to get an apartment.

Re: Zug

I moved to Zug (from the US) and had the help of a relocation assistant... she was of great help! If that's not available to you, I'd suggest you try immoscout24.ch or homegate.ch. If you know anyone in Zug, you should also ask them.. best way to get an apartment is word of mouth!

Re: Zug

Thats double the price this guy was looking for...

OP - if you're not finding much in Zug, try in Baar or Cham - both are very close to Zug (2 min by train with regular connections).

Based on my experience, finding an apartment in the Zug area was much, much easier than finding one in Zürich.

The Amtsblatt tip is a good one, but bear in mind it's printed on Friday mornings, so get it early and phone people early - the best places are "gone" by Monday.

Luzern is also a good shout - closer to Zug than Zürich, and again "easier" to find a place there.
