What do you like about Zurich?
-The lake
-That it's the biggest city in the country and has everything you need, an airport, good traffic system, culture, concerts etc.

What do you dislike about Zurich?
-It's too expensive, the rent, the food, culture, you have everything here but you only need the money to get them!
-it's small, compared to other Swiss City's it's still the biggest, but I don't think it's really worth coming here as a tourist!
-People are very reserved and embittered. You live in the same house with people for 13 years and didn't get over "hi and Goodbye" at all!

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?
-Definitely around the lake, it's beautiful there , and sometimes you even get to see the alps :D
- Käferberg, you can overlook half the city from there!

How expensive is it?
- Expensive is an understatement!

Is it safe?
-Compared to the USA I'm sure it is, though I feel like it's getting worse the last 5-10 years!

How is the weather?
- Pretty mixed up the last years. you get from 38° in the summer to -16° celsius in winter. It mostly rains here, so not really snowy as some people might think!

What do you like about Zurich?
- clean, organized, safe. good food, helpful people, nice summer. the lake is wonderful. great nightlife, and at the same time it's so easy to get away from city life here. lots of art and alternative culture events. creative people. water quality is GOOD!
What do you dislike about Zurich?
- too expensive, like the whole of switzerland. sometimes it can rain for weeks on end, which can be depressing. it's hard to get close to people, although they are nice and helpful they remain detached.

How is the weather?
