Moving to Lausanne

Hi All,

I am moving to Lausanne in mid-March. This forum has been a fantastic resource, and the wealth of information here played a massive part in my evaluation process, and in making the final decision to make the move to Switzerland. My massive thanks to all the forum members for sharing your experiences and invaluable advise. I hail from India, but have been living in Singapore for the past 6 years. I speak English, Hindi, Punjabi, and basic Mandarin. Looking to pickup French in the coming months, and hopefully years in Switzerland. I traveled to Lucerne area frequently for business trips around 7 years ago, so not completely new to Switzerland.

Music is a massive part of my life, and have been playing with different bands (as a hobby) for more than 11 years now. Would love to connect with like-minded folks and groups who are interested in jamming together (situation on covid permitting).

Hope to connect and meet with people here in future! Cheers!

Re: Moving to Lausanne

Welcome to the forum, I hope you settle in smoothly and, once we're allowed more social activities again, get into some fun things.

@akn - I used to play bass guitar many years ago (haven't touched it for a while though), some vocals, and have been learning/ playing drums over the past 2 years. I am very average though to be honest.. haha

@alfmale - I wish I can help, but I wasn't looking to move to Switzerland or Lausanne in specific. Fortunately, I was approached by the company, so I didn't have any specific tips/expertise on job hunting in Switzerland.

Re: Moving to Lausanne

Hello HeavyMetal,

Welcome to Lausanne. Its a beautiful town with everything in walking distance.
Please be prepared for excruciating task of renting the apartment. Not to scare you, but it usually takes more than 3 months, considering your job probation.

My one tip. If you have booked Airbnb or any temporary accommodation, make it at least for 2 months so that you have enough time to look for new apartment.

Wish you good luck. Looking forward to catching up with you to converse in Hindi.

Regards,
Mithun

Thanks for the tips! Its a company provided accommodation where I can stay for 2 months, and there's a local property agent who will help me with the house hunt, so hopefully that should be covered.
