Meeting and making friends from London

Hi

I have been living in Zürich for a few months now and moved from South London area, I do not speak German and finding things a bit quiet over here aside from working .... I am looking to join a gym and perhaps find some social sporty groups to join near by like running etc... is anyone else in a similar situation?!

Hi

yeah Similar for me too. My social network has really varied from old uni connections, colleagues and through housemate connections.

I've been in Zurich for a few months, from Kent.

Re: Meeting and making friends from London

agreed with roegner, grumpy knows everyone (who is worth knowing) lol in ZH. also to OP start an event here - we used to do that back in the day..i'm not physically in CH so i would organise one if i was...also join the gym, join meet ups, go to events. also i met all my closest friends at language classes when i was first in ZH. i guess we all bonded by being in the same boat (new to CH etc) good luck!
