All about Living in Zurich

Welcome to Zurich! Whether you’re visiting for the weekend or having been living her 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 when you are new in the city.  If you would like to know a little more here is a related article from the Zurich Paper Tagblatt which appeared in June 2013, telling you about www.NewInZurich.com – please note though this article is in German!

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 regular 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 personalised welcome talks as well as bespoke guided tours of the city. See here for some of our Tours.

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.

We’ve spent the past seven 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.

As well as giving you the information you need, a tailored service in your home or office we also offer regular group talks, providing all the essential information you need to make yourself at home – from practical ‘nuts and bolts’ to hints and tips on the best places to go at different times of the year.  Zurich offers so much to those of us lucky enough to be living here and we can give you the knowledge to exploit it to its full potential. Whether you’ve been here for a week, a year, or a lifetime,you can always something new.
