Lausanne to Zug

Hi!
I'm an American who has lived and worked in Lausanne since 2005 (after a brief stint in Zurich). After a divorce, I decided to uproot and move to the Zug area where my bf and close friends live, and where I will start working in September.

Given the "Geneva-style" horror stories on the Zug and Zurich rental market (Soviet bread lines for open apartments, or so I have heard) I'm just going to save the headache and look somwhere along the S9 line for an apartment. At any rate, my taxes can only get better after Vaud, right?

Although I speak French fluently (Louisiana girl!) , my German is poor, so I'm a little apprehensive about moving and leaving my adopted city. As such I would love to meet people in the Zug area interested in speaking English or French with me over lunch or for drinks.

I'm also trying to sort through the assorted drama regarding my residence for tax and C permit purposes so will probably be trolling the forums looking for info on that.

Best,
Nicole

Hi Nicole,
Welcome from Canton Zug and your neighborly Texan. I grew up
on the border to Louisiana.

How large of an apartment do you need and when are you moving?

C Permit makes it much easier to move.

It isn't that difficult to find somewhere in Kanton Zug especially if you are flexible and consider Baar, Aegeri, Menzingen, rather than insisting on a prime central spot with lake views.

Yay! another southerner!

My C permit is through my marriage so I am a little nervous about changing cantons. There is such a backlog in Vaud that I haven't had problems. I start working in September but don't want to get an apartment until I know the job is what I want to do (it sounds perfect so far but you never know), so I am looking for around November-December. I don't really want to live in Zug, I'm willing to sacrifce commute for space, so I was ideally thinking Hedingen or even as far as Bonstetten or Birmensdorf because I would like a 3,5 (or a very spacious 2,5). Your thoughts?

I definitely wouldn't say no to Baar or Cham or Steinhausen (or even further out in ZH canton), I'm hoping to look around once I get there!

Hi Nicole,
We can get together and drink sweet tea, eat cornbread, and eat grits.
;-)

Anyways, welcome to Zug. I just knew someone that was getting rid
of his apartment there.

Check out the Zug International Women's club if you want to meet new
people.

Where's the red-eye gravy? No law-abiding southerner can do without this wit' 'dem grits.
