Living in Luzern‘s Insider‘s

ition

%CHSNQcR.

Dear Reader, I‘m so excited to share this information with you. As an expat who knew very little about Switzerland when I arrived, I know I would have appreciated this information. Living in Luzern has worked very hard to make sure that this booklet and the information in it is not only geared specifically at Expats but that it is different from any other Winter booklet around town. Our greatest challenge was figuring out how to make this booklet free. In the end, we were very fortunate that so many sponsors joined in on this project. On the following pages, you will find some sponsor ads; I would encourage you to support the sponsors because without them, this booklet would not exist. A very special thanks goes to Business Development Lucerne for making the printing possible. Lastly, I would like to acknowledge the hard work of Claudia Foertig, Susan Williamson and Angela Fischer. Claudia is almost entirely responsible for the content you see in this booklet. Susan was the key person in helping LiL connect with Claudia. Angela is the creative brain behind the incredible design. I‘m forever amazed at what comes from collaboration!
