Arriving in Horgen in 2 weeks

Hi everyone, we are a British/Irish family relocating to Switzerland beginning of October. Really looking forward to it now and want to get the move over and done with! We have three kids going to the local primary school and kindergarten, and a dog (whippet). Dad is working IT in the city and Mum will be Hausfrau for now. Would love to meet other parents/expats in the area or anyone just starting out in Horgen. Have found the forum brilliant for answering our millions of questions. Looking forward to our Swiss adventure.

Re: Arriving in Horgen in 2 weeks

Hi Shem,

As you saw we have just moved to Horgen. It seems a great place to live so far! If you need any help give us shout, my wife speaking German helped us a lot with sorting the Health Insurance, Cable, Internet etc. etc. so if you need some assistance I'm sure she wouldn't mind!

It'd be nice to make some friends in the lcoal area so if you want to meet up once you're here just send us a message.

That sounds great, thank you, I'm sure we'll take you up on that! My wife speaks a little German having grown up in Munich but is by no means fluent - she can do the bare basics but that's it. In the meantime, hope you get time to continue to check out the restaurants and beer gardens and let us know. Catch up soon.

Re: Arriving in Horgen in 2 weeks

Hi! I am organizing an event this Sunday (Oct. 23) in order to bring together some people from around here and watch the Rugby final on big screen at 10am. There will be English Breakfast, bacon sarnie, tea and beer from 9am. The place is called Sale Bar and the address is Stockerstrasse 4 (only 100m from the train station in Horgen).

Hope to see you there!

Diego

Hi! I hope you are settling in well.

My husband, baby and I also just moved to Horgen only last week. My husband is working at DOW and I am staying home with the baby until I can find some work opportunities. We would love to meet some new friends!
