Moving to Zurich | Removal Company for Switzerland
Moving to Zurich Switzerland
Zurich is considered one of the top 3 best cities to live in globally. According to Mercer’s 21st Quality of Living ranking, Zurich, Vienna and Munich share the top spots. It also ranks second in the world for being a safe city to live in. Zurich has dominated these rankings for nearly a decade now, which makes it a highly attractive prospect for global companies looking for a great business location that will also prove attractive to its employees.
Schepens has been helping solo professionals and families move to Zurich for a good many decades now. It’s a hugely popular destination for expats, and so we get to travel to this beautiful city regularly. We asked some of our clients who’re now long-term residents what advice they’d give to people moving to Zurich, Switzerland.
1. Knock on Your Neighbours’ Door
It’s not the easiest thing to do, especially if you don’t speak German, but you’ll experience a warm welcome. Especially if you take cake with you! Living in a new city can feel very isolating, even if you have expat friends. Starting a conversation with people who know the city and can give you advice on where to shop, eat and explore will make you feel like you’re more at home.
2. Go for a Swim
Swimming is a great way to get to know the city. Sounds strange, until you start to look at the range of pools available. You can swim in lakes – large and small – indoor pools, outdoors pools. Every experience is different, and every one is available by public transport. Even if you’re not a keen swimmer, you’re likely to get the bug once you’ve taken a dip in a mountain lake on a glorious summer’s day!
3. Invest in a Travel Pass
The roads get clogged with traffic in Zurich, so why bother with them when public transport is superb? A travel pass allows you to travel across the city, but it also gives you the opportunity to explore the country. All the shops are shut on a Sunday in Zurich, and lots of families use the day to go for a hike. Use your travel pass to get to local hiking routes, and explore the glorious landscapes just minutes from the city.
4. Don’t Expect to Shop
One look at the prices in Zurich will persuade you to put your shopping list on hold. This is a truly expensive city, and there’s no getting around it. It’s tempting to moan about the prices, compare them with home, and count down to the day when you can splurge once more. Or you can put shopping from your mind, and look for activities to replace it. There’s loads of clubs to join in Zurich, and you’ll meet people from the city that way, too.
