Moving to the Zurich area March 2011

Hello,

I have just been transferred to my firm's Zurich office (heading over in march). The plan is to live in Rapperswil and do the daily commute into Zurich. Anyway, I am keen to get involved in all the social events as much as possible as I know nobody in Switzerland at all! Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Mike.

Welcome - I'm sure that you'll have a fantastic time. Rapperswil is really nice too.

I've been living here in Meilen with my wife for 3.5 years. We're actually moving to the states in March so unlikely our paths will cross. Happy to share any tips!

All the best,
Matt

Mike - Rapperswil is very cute. I think there are some great restaurants and pizza places right on the lake and the walk across the lake on the little bridge is great. The city across the lake from Rapperswil is I believe the lowest tax region around Zurich so you may consider that as a place to live as well.

Have a great move. The first 6 months are a bit tough as an adjustment, but then it becomes wonderful and the summers are fab. Make sure to get a wake boarding card so you can go out on the boats in the lake in the summer!

all the best!
