Riviera Contact Group

Welcome to the Swiss Riviera!

The Riviera Contact Group is a multicultural, multilingual group made up primarily of partners of Nestlé employees transferred to Switzerland. The RCG was founded to help you and your family adjust to a new culture and community. While some of us have lived in the region for several years and already know our way around and others may have only been here for a few months we are united in welcoming and supporting each other.

Club members organise several activity groups that may help you get to know the community while enjoying a new or fun pastime. The current activity groups include:


  • Playgroup (a group for children up to 4 years old accompanied by an adult) meets Monday and Friday mornings from 9:30 – 12:00 year round


  • Mah Jong (Chinese tile game) meets every Wednesday afternoon from 13:30 – 16:30 year round


  • Book Group (reads and discusses an English language book that the participants choose) meets first Tuesday of the month from 9:30 – 11:30


  • German Conversation (German speakers or people wanting to improve their language skills) meets for different activities and coffee


  • Gourmet Group (Couples take turns hosting and preparing one of three dishes on a pre-set menu; for the amateur chef or anyone who just enjoys good food) meets about 7 times a year


  • Riviera Walking Group (Walks arranged in the region usually 1.5 to 2 hours followed by coffee) meets at various locations every Thursday from 9:00 – 11:00


Members may propose new activity groups.

In addition to the activity groups, periodic coffee mornings will be organised.
