The American International Club of Zurich (AICZ), formerly the American Club of Zurich is open to all who seek friendly contact with the Zurich community. The AICZ provides a forum for members who share an interest in American and Canadian culture and/or language but live in Switzerland, to meet individuals from the Swiss international community.
Over the years, expat North Americans as well as other internationals have been coming to Zurich for various reasons that include international assignments, relocation, marriage or, one might say, “destiny.”
The AICZ helps you make a smooth transition and integration into the Swiss community and gives our international community the opportunity to meet and get to know North Americans. In addition, the club, through its volunteers, organizes events that enable you to fully benefit from and enrich your experience over the years in our host country, our beautiful Switzerland.
The purpose of the AICZ is to promote ‘Fellowship, Friendship, and Service’ while bringing English-speaking people of all nations together. The club provides a platform for its members from many nations to foster fellowship and promote friendly relationships. We look forward to meeting you soon!
AICZ events cover a broad palette of activities to appeal to the wide spectrum of interests of our members.
Events have included:
...and much more!
In true American tradition, we organize:
annual Independence Day parties
traditional Thanksgiving dinners
informative events regarding issues such as taxation
All these events are organized by the Executive Committee and club members for the benefit and enjoyment of the other club members and guests.
When good people come together for a good cause, good things happen.

Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Switzerland & Liechtenstein
The AICZ Charity Committee expresses its sincere gratitude to those friends and members who participated in the fund-raising tombola during the October NMWR/TGIF on October 21! We look forward to making our club's 2016 donation to Make-A-Wish Foundation by mid-December and bringing happiness to many children. The spirit of the TGIF during the evening towards charitable giving was fun and a source of great pride. Thank you so much for your support! Sincerely, the AICZ Charity Committee.
