Dungeons & Dragons near Baden?

Hi there, I'm new here and I hope this is the right place to ask about this.

Are there any groups playing Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition in the area around Baden?

A little bit about myself:

I'm 33, from Germany but now living in Switzerland (5 years). I'm married, have a son of 17 months and the second child is due in june (which doesn't mean I'm going to give up D&D again).
I've been playing a lot with friends back in school but haven't really gotten around to it afterwards. My last game of D&D was, I think, 10 years ago.
I've always wanted to return to the game but college and moving to Switzerland have made it difficult.
But I feel like it's finally time to return to the world of D&D.

Now, why do I want to play D&D in English? I've always preferred the original English language of movies, tv shows, books (both paper and audio) over the German translation.
(So much is lost if you translate something from English to German.....) Plus, with my friends we had the 3rd Edition of D&D in English and I'm accustomed to its formulations which are not too different from the current edition's.
(Also, I have a knack for the English language and speak it fluently.)

I actually have a few of the source books available on dndbeyond.com

Player's Handbook
Dungeon Master's Guide
Monster Manual
Curse of Strahd
Lost Mine of Phandelver
Princes of the Apocalypse
Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide
Volo's Guide to Monsters
Tomb of Annihilation
Xanathar's Guide to Everything
Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes
Guildmaster's Guide to Ravnica
Lost Laboratory of Kwalish
Concerning the question if I want to be player or DM. I like both roles, so I don't really have a preference. Although I'm working on a campaign and would be interested how it plays out.

I have already read the Player's Handbook and Dungeon Master's Guide to get up to speed with the 5th edition ruleset and I've looked into the other source books too just to get a feel for what it's like playing a pen&paper RPG again.

So, if anyone's interested to know a bit more about me to see if I fit in your group (or to form a new group altogether), just let me know.

Hi, I don't know specifically of groups in Baden but at a recent meetup for this group there was at least one person from Baden.

Check them out, Baden's not a long way from Zurich.

Hi folks.

I'm the organiser of SwissRPG (the meetup group that was mentioned by araqyl). We have players from around the Zürich region, but we're looking to expand further, so definitely come say hi, and join our Discord where you can openly ask who's from around. Hope to see you there.
