InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Zurich

Hello to all Americans in Zurich! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Zurich? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Zurich 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: Zurich is one of the most livable cities worldwide. The financial center is a very international city known for its high costs but equally high quality of life, the striking mix of medieval and contemporary, the local banking and insurance industry, and much more! With the public transportation network consisting of suburban trains (S-Bahn), buses and trams, 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 outer districts, such as district 11 and 12, or even in one of the surrounding towns, which are a short commute away from Zurich’s center.

Although Zurich 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 Zurich, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
