History of the New Zealand Association of Switzerland

How it all began

The New Zealand Association of Switzerland was founded back in 1983 by a small group of New Zealanders living in Zurich. Their main motivation was simply to be able to get together with other New Zealanders and reminisce about home. Over the years the club has grown from strength to strength and presently there are over 100 member households in Switzerland.

Our Mission

The New Zealand Association of Switzerland aims to bring together New Zealanders living in all parts of Switzerland. We provide information of interest to New Zealanders through the club newsletter and this website. Social activities such as hiking and skiing weekends, bowling, picnics and pot luck dinners are organised by the committee on a regular basis. There’s a Christmas party and of course an Annual General Meeting once a year. We also seek to help newcomers with contact and information about living in Switzerland.

Where do we live?

All over Switzerland!
