A Warm Welcome! Grüezi!

The American International Club of Zurich (AICZ) is open to all American and Canadian citizens, as well as others having association with the USA or Canada (upon approval by two existing Full members). The AICZ is a Member of the Association of American Clubs (AAC).

Over the years, expat North Americans have been coming to Zurich for various reasons that include international assignments, relocation, marriage or, one might say, “destiny.”

The AICZ helps you to make a smooth transition and integration into the community.  In addition, the club, through its volunteers, organizes events that enable you to fully benefit from and enrich your experience over the years in your host country, our beautiful Switzerland.

In the process our members establish a camaraderie and spirit of fun as they profit from creative ideas of both new and more established members.

The purpose of the AICZ is to promote ‘Fellowship, Friendship, and Service’ while bringing English-speaking people of all nations together. We look forward to meeting you soon!
