Switzerland

Working and Living in the Swiss Alps

After moving back from Australia in 2012 with my Dog Timmy, I needed to find some work. The first 2 years I worked at a Swiss Chocolate Factory as I’m a qualified Swiss Pastry Chef.But soon I knew I wanted to be more outside in nature and spend more time with Timmy and so I started searching the Internet for jobs in the Swiss Alps.

As luck was on my side I found a job very quickly in Canton Glarus, where I already live.  The Region is called Braunwald and lies at the end of the valley. The beautiful small village Braunwald is a car free zone and lies at 1256m.Best part was, that I worked and lived in the same hotel. So at my breaks I could just step outside and go for walks with Timmy and in Winter I sledged along with Timmy, that was so much fun.





I hope I could inspire you with looking for work in the Swiss Alps and I wish you many fantasitc times on top of the Swiss Mountains. woof, woof xoxSylvia & Timmy
