Tell me about Cham

My wife and I just discovered that our temporary accomodation for 3 months is in Cham. Does anyone live there or can anyone tell us about it? I can't find much information in English or many pictures.

You might as well go to Scotland.

Re: Tell me about Cham

Cham, surrounded by green hills, pretty much on the lake of Zug. Only a few minutes out of *the city* of Zug.

Nice, quiet, comfortable, safe, convenient if you're working in Zug, lots of expats and American accents to be heard.

You're good, nothing to worry about there.

My wife is working for Roche in Rotkreuz which is just down the road, so it seems to be very convenient for her.

Convenient indeed. A few minutes on the train (0 or 1 change) or 15 minutes on the bus (0 changes).

Check out the SBB website for train and bus schedules.

The city trains go quite often to Rotkreuz and on to Luzern so you should be fine. Also, some of the InterRegios (Zug to Luzern) stop in Rotkreuz. Either way, its not something to worry about....and Cham is nice, swimming in the lake....while it's still warm.

Re: Tell me about Cham

Don't know any in Cham. I once walked past this one in Zug. Not far from railway station - straight down towards the lake.

There is a Pickwick's English style pub near the train station
in Zug. It is pretty nice.

I really don't believe that there is much to do in Cham, but Luzern, Zug,
and Zürich are all within 30 mins.

Re: Tell me about Cham

I don't know about Cham, ZG, but I can tell you all about The Great Cham: http://us.geocities.com/sschaeff/Sam...uctorypage.htm

(apropos nothing whatsoever, but I can't miss a plug for a fellow citizen of Lich when I can get one in)

Re: Tell me about Cham

You just wait, Argus will be along soon and tell you all about it. We can see it from our flat, I have visited too. It's a nice little place and very accessible from Zug etc.

Can't do much about infos in English, but since no-one else seems to have sent you any pics, here are a few to be going on with.

Re: Tell me about Cham

There's a great italian restaurant in Cham - it's called Rialto. It's slightly east of the main Cham train station and right in front of the Zythus station. Their pizza is delicious and so is the pasta. Maybe I'll see you in there one night

There are plenty of other restaurants in the area too. Best to explore once you get here. My husband and I also lived in a temporary accomodation in Cham when we first arrived a few months ago. A lot of families. A "beach" nearby. We liked Cham a lot. Good luck!
