Moving to Zurich in August from US

I will be moving to Zurich in mid-August with my husband who will spend a sabbatical year at the ETH. We are coming from Southern California where I am a music teacher (violin and viola), but I will enjoy having a year off from working. We plan on traveling quite a bit and also exploring Zurich and Switzerland as much as we can. We look forward to hiking, especially.

I have enjoyed reading the EF for all kinds of information and look forward to our exciting adventure.

You will find that the incredible integrated transportation system can get you anywhere in the country, and in most cases quite conveniently. The Alps are not too far away, but at some time during the year you must explore the closer Jura mountains.

Hi Carly.Reimold,

We are fortunate that the ETH has university housing, so we are all set, but thanks!

I will be sure to check out the girlfriend guide and the Jura mountains, too.

Yeah, maybe, though I honestly haven't found them to be any more rule bound than anywhere else. But I don't own a house.

(Almost) welcome to Zurich!

My partner's doing his PhD at the ETH, it's a beautiful area of town (well, it's more like a farm to be honest!). Lots of beautiful walks to be done around Zurich and beyond

Yes, welcome to hiking paradise! Check out this Swiss website: map.schweizmobil.ch. It's incredible how many trails there are and how easy they are to get to with public transport.
