New to Luzern? We offer various integration programmes and social events so you can start to feel at home right away.

Moving to a new country is always difficult, especially when you have to adjust to new systems, new cultural traditions, and a new language—particularly if that language is Swiss German! The LiLi Centre, in partnership with Living in Luzern and Job Integration For Foreigners (JIFF), offers a number of programmes and events to help you integrate and adjust to your new life here in Switzerland.

Information Coffee Mornings

Do you have questions about living in the town of Luzern? Or are you just looking for someone who knows what it feels like to be an expat? In all cases we are here for you with insider knowledge! Every other Wednesday we host an informal coffee chat at the LiLi Centre, where Living in Luzern team members will be available to answer your questions over a cup of coffee or tea. 

Job Integration For Foreigners (JIFF)

Through our partner JIFF, the LiLi Centre offers a number of programmes to help expats network, get advice, and meet a mentor. JIFF runs bimonthly workshops on alternate Wednesdays geared toward helping expats to find and attain work, such as writing a CV for the Swiss market, or learning how to set up a small business. They also host a monthly networking apero.

German Learning and Conversation

Whether you're a beginner with no previous experience, or an intermediate speaker looking to improve, we offer a number of German classes and conversation groups to help you get comfortable with the language. For beginners, check out our Survival German classes to get a jumpstart on the language. For intermediates and advanced, we offer a weekly conversation group where you can come and practice your language in comfortable and relaxed environment. Contact us at or visit our calendar to find out when our next classes take place.


A native German speaker is available by appointment to help you understand or translate documents. For more information on getting in touch, please contact us at
