I move to Zurich since three years ago. I really enjoy live in this city and love it. Of course it’s not a “cool” city, but it’s really comfortable, you can easily have a good life just with a basic job. The public traffic is super convenient, especially when you have a kid, everywhere it just so kid friendly.
The city is not big, and traffic is not annoying, you can walk around the lake and river, you can take train go for a weekend trip, the nature is always beautiful.
Here is difficult to make a friend, because most swiss people are not so open, and they are pretty shy. But people are still friendly and nice.

I was born in Zurich and currently live here. . Zurich is beautiful, butit is boring and depressing here. The city has no spirit.
Now in 2021, things have become worse here. It is hard to find a job here. Life is expensive, especially when you want to dine out.
If you are a single man, don't come here. No good bars, hard to meet woman. It is a very very lonely place and people are introverted making it hard to find love or people to socialize. I do have friends here but its just not the same as in cosmopolitan cities with all that energy and good vibes/ food and interesting people that make a city so amazing. Shame Zurich doesnt have that!
The weather is good and the system works. Nature is nice. Other than that nothing. Having lived in Cities like New York and UK , this place doesn't even come close. Bottom line: I don't recommend living here.

If you add "People index" on this website Zurich would be the last city on the list (planet). Also climate index of 85 for Zurich is way too much! Maybe 50-60 at best!
