Find Tips and Advice on Switzerland from British Expats

Of course, expat living in Switzerland is not just about shipping your belongings and filing in some bureaucratic papers. Regular socializing with fellow Brits is an essential part of expat life and helps getting accustomed to the Swiss way of life and mentality. InterNations helps you connect and meet up with other Brits in Switzerland, residing in Zurich, Geneva, Bern and many other places throughout the country. Just take a look at our group of Brits in Zurich or Brits in Geneva.

If you ever wish to have a chat in your native language, discover where to shop for British food or discuss your favorite sports team's latest match, become a member of the Swiss InterNations Community:

  • Look up our top quality network to get to know open-minded expats from United Kingdom in Switzerland.
  • Obtain and share insider tips in our Switzerland Expat Forums – e.g. how to hire a babysitter fluent in your native tongue for your children or where to get roast beef in Geneva.
  • Search the InterNations Places database for Switzerland to get information on institutions from your home country, including the British embassy.

From the mountain resort of Zermatt to Interlaken, the outdoor and action sports capital of Switzerland, we’ll help you connect with supportive and friendly British expats in Switzerland.

Join Our Expat Activities and Mingle with Fellow Brits in Switzerland

Moreover, please feel free to attend our regular expat events and activities in Switzerland. Our get-togethers are very diverse and range from a cozy gathering to enjoy the traditional Swiss rösti, to big expat celebrations with hundreds of participants in Zurich’s best locations.

Our meet-ups and activities are a great opportunity to mingle with expats from United Kingdom and various other countries in a casual setting. Interested? Just sign up and you’ll soon be receiving a cordial Hello from our Brits living in Switzerland!
