Luthier in Zurich, Switzerland?

May 31, 2018, 7:49 PM · I haven't posted here in a while due to my dwindling spare time. In short version I am moving to Zurich in Switzerland from Ottawa Canada for at least 3 years. I would like to have a "violin doctor" in case things happen to my violin, and the regular maintenance.

Are there any recommendations for a luthier in and around the city of Zurich?

If you are earning Swiss Francs and can afford Swiss prices for everything (not sure about lutherie), which to foreigners seem comically high, it is good to support the local economy.
