connect, grow & thrive.

Welcome to Living in Luzern

Founded in 2007, Living in Luzern is a not for profit organisation whose main purpose is to help international residents in Luzern looking to connect to with each other and the local community. This is achieved with a lifestyle magazine available online and in press format as well as through socially responsible projects being led through the LiLi Centre.

In 2013, Charlie Hartmann became the Managing Director of Living in Luzern. Under her leadership Living in Luzern readership has grown and in June 2016 the LiLi Centre was opened. This community centre is now the physical home of Living in Luzern and other organisations and runs several outreach and integration projects, including the Job Integration For Foreigners (J.I.F.F.) which helps international residents with the work issues. Living in Luzern publishes lifestyle magazines and reaches a wide audience on social media. The organisation is working on several creative projects aimed at helping people discover Lucerne and its surroundings.
