New to Zurich

Hi, I've recently moved to Zurich from the UK for a 12 month contract, I'm staying in an aparthotel in Altstetten as it's close to the office, which wasn't really necessary as the company I'm working for has now said everyone must work from home anyway. Oh well.

I have just this week finished my 10 day quarantine period. I didn't sneak out to the Aldi, Thai, Curry Cafe or Getrankemarkt at all during this enforced captivity.

Re: New to Zurich

Heya, I moved just up the road to Dietikon in 11/20.
Also from the UK
Let me know if you fancy a beer and a chat sometime, corona time is not the easiest for meeting people to my experience! What with working from home, and all the pubs being closed, I seem to be turning into a hermit.

Re: New to Zurich

Good idea, when I came over in December I found a nice bar called Kibar opposite Alstetten train Station, I thought this will do me, only half a mile from my aparthotel with a kebab hut on the way home.

Since I started work in Jan it's been shut because of lockdown.

Welcome to Zurich!


To echo the others, happy to meet up for a beer or whatever. It's a tough time here at the moment. Like a ghost town!

Re: New to Zurich

Welcome to Switzerland and the EF, Yossarian & Jens.

I hope you get to enjoy your time here more soon, as numbers drop down low enough for things to open again.
