DE to Zurich daily commute

Are there people living just across the border in Germany who work in Zurich? What is the commute time and best towns to consider?

Re: DE to Zurich daily commute

Why would you want to put yourself through that to get to Zürich? Your quality of life would be so much better with a shorter commute.

Re: DE to Zurich daily commute

i had a colleague who did it from across the boarder of schaffhausen to zurich/zug. i can't remember which.

i do remember that it took him about 2 hours by car and was severely detrimental to his health and family life.

Re: DE to Zurich daily commute

According to Swiss statistics for 3Q 2015, there were 9,480 cross-border employees working in Zurich. I would presume that most are commuting from Germany (and not Austria, France, Italy, Liechtenstein or London):
