Soon to be living in Zurich

Hello

I've just found out today that I've got a job in Zurich and will be moving over in a couple of weeks or so. The logistical challenge is just sinking in but I'm really excited about it. I've been looking at this forum over the last few weeks to get an idea about life in Switzerland and now I know I'm moving over I thought I'd better join up and say hello. I'm looking forward to meeting and chatting with you in the future.

Time to start looking at the accommodation sites I guess.

Take it easy

Neal.

ps. if one was to earn the GDP of a small industrialised nation, would that be enough to have a reasonable life in Zurich?

a Newbie who knows how to use the "SEARCH FUNCTION" is not only welcome here........ but could potentially be worshiped as a God.




Welcome to Zurich and the EF, with such short notice to move here, I wish you the best of luck.


Let me answer a few quick questions for you before you ask:
1) Yes, the Swiss are like that,
2) Yes, it costs that much
3) Yes, Switzerland IS different to where you came from


P.S. Great intro, and looking forward to seeing you around.

Re: Soon to be living in Zurich

Hi
Welcome to the city...
We are living here for the last 2 yrs and I must say it is the most peaceful city I have ever been to... Life is cool..

Things are pretty costly compared to other citites..
If you want to stay in a well connnected place then house rent is high, and without half-price card / passes regular travel or holiday travels are very costly...
But the train service is so good and timely that you will not feel the absence of a metro-rail in the city... how far you go the train/bus will take you there.. I mean if you dont possess a car of your own you dont worry, public transport would give you that feeling....

Hope you enjoy your stay here as we are enjoying...

Welcome to Switzerland and the forum from me too.

Fully agree with @BillHardie. A great introduction and top marks on not only your ability but also your willingness to use the search function.

Take it easy and *see* you around on the forum.

Re: Soon to be living in Zurich

I think BFG has a confession to make he may have been forewarned.

FFS DO NOT POST..."Is X Salary enough to live off in CH!"

Great intro and welcome to CH mate!

Make sure you visit the Viaduckt /events you're in for a surprise....

Getting out there won't be an issue! I can guarantee that
