Online shop selling the fabulous LUXE City guides from the worlds coolest guidebook publisher. Small enough to fit in your pocket, but big enough to contain hundreds of hand selected entries of the very best each city has to offer. LUXE city guides are distilled from the recommendations of people who actually live in the city itself, and collated by a resident editor.

For six years LUXE City Guides has quietly changed the face of travel guides, starting from scratch we re-thought the whole concept of why and how we all travel, of what we need when we get there and most importantly, what we don't. LUXE is now famous for its super-svelte format, and its take no prisoners attitude, avoiding all the padding, photos, graphics and blah of other guides and getting straight to the meat. The result – ultra-smart travel companions stacked with priceless information for the discerning, value-conscious and busy traveller.

In the notoriously fickle worlds of fashion, food and entertainment other guides are hopelessly out of date even by the time they reach the bookstore shelf. LUXE City Guides are not only updated each year, but come with monthly online updates. So by the time you get to your destination, all you need do is relax, because if it’s not in LUXE, you’re not missing anything. Hyper-opinionated, irreverent, bright and fun to read, whether you have a few hours or a few days, LUXE really is all you need. Oh, and you’ll never hear us refer to our readers as tourists. With LUXE you’re a visitor. It’s a big difference.

"LUXE city guides have achieved near cult status" The NEW YORK TIMES. "So cutting edge, you could be lacerated if you are not up to its cool pace" VANITY FAIR

Grüezi Newcomer! Insider's guide around Lake Zürich 2009/2010.

This guide is a compilation of information for English speaking newcomers having recently settled or planning to relocate to Lake Zürich area (both sides of Lake Zürich including Obersee).

Grüezi Newcomer! Insider's guide around Lake Zürich 2009/2010 will be updated every 2 years and is based on facts and personal recommendations. It covers a broad range of subjects related to every day life and living such as managing administrative issues like finding a home and registering a car, searching for a job, organizing childcare, commuting, going out, and much more. Our aim is to facilitate newcomers' relocation to the area and their integration.

After surveying the market and talking with internationals and expatriates alike, we quickly realized the real need for a publication like this: up-to-date, finger tip recommendations in English, for a wider public and geographical area, and containing more concrete information than existing books available in the bookstore.

Where to find it? In Switzerland, available from:

  • Orell Füssli in Zürich
  • Lüthy & Stocker Buchhandlung in Zürich Sihlcity
  • BB 2000 Buchhandlung Seedamm Center, Pfäffikon SZ
