As with all GSGI links, we only add the ones we like, have used, or think could be useful. These recommended links for expats in Lucerne have been recommended by GSGI editors or readers. In some cases, the links take you to a website for which we provided some of the content (so naturally we think it's excellent!).
The books and films have been recommended by our readers and editors. Unless mentioned, most are available at booksellers or on line. If you have a recommendation we should add to this list, we'd love to hear it (contact us).

Useful Links and Information

AngloINFO Switzerland- Really excellent resource for expats heading for --or already living in -- Switzerland, with valuable no-frills listings of everything from dentists to plumbers, schools (basic info) to hair cuts, registering your car to tax problems as well as classifieds, discussions and details about what's on in your area. Useful directories, reliable information, intuitive site....goes exactly where it says it will, in exactly the country section where you'd expect to find it.


LookSeeCity- Elegantly filmed and thoroughly researched, this smart and wide-ranging online streamed video guide lets you see and hear what life is like in Switzerland from the comfort of your computer. Learn about neighbourhoods, accommodation, schools, entertainment and get the inside story from others who've already made the move. The school information was filmed on location at each school, with general educational advice given by our GSGI editor. Also available for London, Geneva, Hong Kong, Zurich, Dubai and New York.
