What should I pack when moving to Olten?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Olten to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"No particular things for myself - as I have a Swiss wife, she could very well prepare me for moving to and living in Switzerland. - There are no real needs to bring to Switzerland. Anything you need is available here as well. - Don't bring washing machines, tumblers, kitchen appliances, as they usually belong to / come with the house or apartment that you buy or rent. Moving these things is very unusual in Switzerland. - When you bring electrical equipment: check plugs and voltage. Swiss electricity comes at 230V/50Hz and plugs and sockets are of type "J", which means that any plug of type "C" or "J" will fit into a Swiss socket, and any other plug won't. - Switzerland is expensive. In particular, medicins, health care and body care products are very expensive. Many Swiss buy them abroad (in Germany) whenever possible. - Switzerland has the best public transport system of Europe, and one of the best of the world. Living without car may be very well possible for you in Switzerland - consider this when you plan to import a car," said another expat in Olten, Switzerland.

"Clothes, toiletries, kitchenware, linens, furniture, electronics, books, artwork, tools, cleaning supplies, pet supplies, important documents such as birth certificate and passport, bank statements and insurance policies, enough cash for the first few days until you get access to banking," wrote a member who made the move to Olten, Switzerland.
