Whether You’re “New in Zurich” or

Want To Know “What’s New in Zurich”

What's On In Zurich Late September 2019

Welcome to Zurich! Whether you’re visiting for the weekend or having been living here for years, hopefully you will find out about something “new in Zurich” that’s taking place and that captures your interest.

I’m Christina and together with a virtual team of writers, photographers, helpers and supporters (please see Team “tab” for more information) we aim to provide you with information about what is new and happening in and around Zurich and the key things you need to know if you are new in the city.

We aim to help you get the best out of living in Zurich and tell you all about the fun events and festivals that are running in town. We run talks for newcomers and expats so that you have the information you need to settle in quickly and get to grips with life in Zurich. We also offer a limited number of personalised guided tours of the city throughout the year.

How can NewInZurich help?

Zurich is a vibrant, exciting city offering an unrivaled range of attractions and activities. Whether you enjoy getting back to nature on the water or in the mountains; soaking up culture in museums and galleries or exploring trendy eateries and shops, you’ll be spoilt for choice here.  But, moving to a new city is always a challenge.  To get the best out of your time, you need to know where to go; where the best places are and, at a practical level, how things work in Switzerland.  This is where we come in.

If You Are A New Person In Zurich

We’ve spent the past twelve years in Zurich, exploring the city and its surroundings in detail.  We’ve researched just about every aspect of life here and have amassed a raft of  ‘inside information’ – information which will help you quickly start enjoying life here to the full. A great start is to read our article Top Tips for Newcomers To Zurich and More Tips For Newcomers to Zurich. We cover everything from learning to live in an appartment block with a Shared Laundry Room to Exchanging Your Driving Licence and advising you about Speeding Fines!

If you Want to Know What’s New & Happening In Zurich

As well as practical information for newbies we also provide you with a weekly newsletter packed full of information about “What’s New” in Zurich. Whether you’ve been here for a week, a year, or a lifetime, you can always find out about new exhibitions, new restaurants and hotels, new events and lots more. Subscribe to the website to receive this newsletter once a week outlining ideas on things to do for the weekend and the week ahead.

When You Leave Zurich

Sadly it’s often the case that all good things come to an end. If you find that you’re leaving Switzerland we also have a useful blogpost all about the important things you need to do to ensure a smooth departure. Take a look here for all things to do with leaving.

NewInZurich Tour of Zurich Switzerland

So if you fancy taking a Chocolate Tour or a Cheese and Chocolate Tour or indeed a “Zuri West” tour or a “Photo & Highlights of Zurich” and a “Zurich Photo Tour by Night” (both tours are run in conjunction with a professional photographer), please get in contact. The tours are all run in small groups and cost CHF 80 per person (or CHF 400 for a group of six) and last about 3 hours.

They are great as birthday presents, ideal for visitors – or simply a fun way to get on the insider track in Zurich.
