Did you recently move here from Switzerland?
Are you in Los Angeles for vacation or here on business?

Either way, Welcome to Los Angeles, our “Home away from Home“, and have fun discovering our exciting City!

The Angeleno-Swiss community and LA’s Mayor hope you enjoy your stay, be it for business, pleasure or a little of both!

Whether you’re at the Beach in Venice or Santa Monica, on the Westside, in (West)Hollywood, in the Valley or Downtown – there’s SO MUCH to experience in this Great City. Be sure to get your personal copy of the Los Angeles Visitors Guide by LA, Inc. – one of the BEST resources to discover LA.

If you have any questions about Los Angeles, be it as a visitor or recent “import” from Switzerland – please don’t hesitate posting them here, on our twitter feed or on our facebook page: a member of the Swiss Community will gladly help, or direct you to where you can find an answer.

The Angeleno-Swiss Community hosts various events of interest all over town on a regular basis:


The Swiss Mixer, a monthly get-together of independent Swiss Businesspeople living in LA, meets every second Thursday of the Month, usually at Locanda del Lago in Santa Monica.

The Swiss-American Chamber of Commerce hosts monthly dinner events at the Beverly Hills Hotel where prominent people from Government, Business, Art & Entertainment get together to listen to featured speakers and presentations related to Swiss-American relations.

The Creative Swiss Community of Los Angeles has a facebook home moderated by the Consul General, and its aim is to bring together the vast community of Creative Swiss living in LA in periodic showcase receptions.

For a (not comprehensive) listing of Swiss activities in LA, check out our Angeleno-Swiss Community Calendar!

What’s new in LA:

The Swiss Center Los Angeles is a unique Swiss Made Marketing Platform, created to represent, assist and showcase Swiss Interests conducting business in Southern California.

While operating on a volunteer-driven “virtual” basis during the formative stages, the proponents are hoping to create a permanent presence in the near future in the form of a Concierge-Lounge-Like Business Center, with meeting space and temporary offices the prestigious Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, available to its local members and visiting guests from Switzerland.

The RED BUILDING, a soon-to-be-opened addition to the Pacific Design Center campus, will create a highly visible symbol in the Heart of LA, and a consistent use of this facility to present Swiss Events of any kind will contribute in making this a de-facto “Epicenter of Swissness in Southern California”.

Visit us here, on facebook or follow @HelveticLA, subscribe to Helvetic.LA’s RSS feed or to The Angeleno-Swiss’ Daily Newsbrief, check out the Community Calendar and stop by one of our many events.

You will see – after a while Los Angeles will feel like “Little Switzerland“!

Enjoy LA & have FUN!
