InterNations — A Community for American Expats in St. Gallen

Hello to all Americans in St. Gallen! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in St. Gallen? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in St. Gallen which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: St. Gallen is the major hub of northeastern Switzerland. The compact metropolis is a university city known for its traditional old town, successful business school, embroidered textiles industry, and much more! With the VBSG bus services and a very walkable city center, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the surrounding rural areas, which are an easy commute away from St. Gallen’s center.

Although St. Gallen has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in St. Gallen, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
