About Us

AWCZlogoblackborderwebInternational friendships with an American flair!

Founded in 1931, the American Women's Club of Zurich welcomes US and North American citizens and women of all nationalities who appreciate the American way of life. We are a not-for-profit, volunteer-run organization dedicated to providing opportunities for friendship and personal development. We also actively engage in philanthropic and community service projects in the greater Zurich region, throughout Switzerland and in the larger global community.

The AWCZ Clubhouse is located in the trendy Seefeld neighborhood close to museums, cinema, the opera, restaurants, boutiques and the lake of Zurich. It is easily accessible by public transportation (trams 2 and 4). There are garages and some street parking available.
