Switzerland is well-known for its extensive alpine landscapes, which invite you to go on excursions in winter as well as in summer. About 70 percent of Switzerland consists of mountains, some of them more than 4000 meters high. In addition to these wonderful natural wonders, Switzerland also offers a very promising labour market and is one of the most economically powerful countries in Europe.
As in other European countries, looking for accommodation in Switzerland can be difficult. In huge cities like Zurich, Basel or Bern, rental apartments are often expensive. The largest selection of apartments can be found on the Internet, but you can also get information through personal contacts, such as your future employer. Swiss rental contracts usually have a three months’ notice period with three fixed termination dates (March 31st, June 30th or September 30th ). For example, you can start your house-hunting here.
