Zug rent versus Swiss rents

Is Zug the most expensive rent in Switzerland?  Unfortunately the answer is YES!  Or fortunately for the ones that own property in our canton.  In the data released by BFS (Bundesamt für Statistik) or also know the National Office of Statistics, Zug came on top of the list with 1,818CHF per month.  This is average net monthly rent without charges and heating costs.  The average of the entire country is 1362CHF/month, which means that Zug is 33% more expensive than the National average.   Zug was found more expensive than Zurich and Geneva to my surprise.  I was also...

These are the questions we all have and that’s why I designed the survey so you can see the answers directly after you answer yourself. The survey is 100%...

Stay at home: why and how to have fun

So we have to stay at home. Or at least I will. With all the negative aspects that might have. I will lose money. I will distant myself from my loved ones physically. I will miss the nature, the clubbing, the restaurants, the social fun. And that is OK. Even if there is not a Saturday I have not gone out, even if there is not a day that I did not spend it with my friends, even if I need to earn my living financially. Like everybody. And that is OK. If other generations or parts of the...
