I've told you before but another warning can't hurt. Fraudsters are active on all housing platforms in Switzerland. Also on my pages. Unfortunately, I can't guarantee that all offers are genuine. I do my best to blacklist any i catch but I also want to show you how to recognise fake ads.
Location, location, location Be smart, if the price seems very low, be suspicious! If you’re new to Zurich compare this offer to others. Of course there are still some truly cheap and wonderful flats in Zurich. But just be aware! And check the address to make sure that it actually exists.
«Unfortunately, i live abroad…» Often a sure sign for a fraud, be suspicious and never, ever hand over money before you seen the flat and received an official contract.
Pictures Fake ads often just show photos from the inside. Just do a reverse picture search on Google to see if the displayed images were already used for other flats.
Air bnb Currently, many fraudster use Airbnb. Scenario A: They rent a flat via Airbnb and pretend that it‘s their own. Tricky to find that out. Just make sure you don’t transfer money to a personal account. Scenario B: They pretend that the deal is through Airbnb but they sent you to a fake website. In either case, if it feels weird – back off!
Tell me If you discover a fake ad on my page, let me know. Either send me an email to [email protected] and I’ll help you asap. Or let me know via the Spam-Button (see picture below), and i’ll have a closer look.

3. A Trip Up The Sihl
I love the Sihl valley. In spite of its close proximity to the city it still feels rugged and remote. Let’s face it, all there is is a river and a railway line. But nothing makes a good walk better than knowing there is cold drink and a

I've just been refused entry to a cafe in Zurich because their Vaccine app doesn't recognise my UK vaccination certificate.
The owners of the app tell me there are no plans to fix this.
Has anyone else had this problem?
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Uganda is one of the poorest countries in the world. The educational system is rather weak, especially on the level of the vocational training there aren't many possibilities. Most children leave primary or secondary school and start working somewhere without a solid or even without any training at all.
During Covid-19 the situation became even worse. Schools are/were closed for about 18 months. Many children started to work during this period and will not return to school. Without reasonable training it will be very difficult to find a job where they can earn for themselves or their families in the future.
