Re: Eglisau, Knonau, or Oberglatt?

Eglisau is handy station as it has trains going off in different directions.
It's got the direct line to Waldshut, Germany - for tax-free shopping etc.

A direct connection to Jestetten - again for shopping in Germany (but not tax free as no Ausfuhr facilities in Jestetten station).

Direct connection to Schaffhausen, Bülach, Zurich for work, other etc.

I guess if you are looking for somewhere quiet, it's Eglisau as it's a small place, not much happening.
Other than the fact that Marton and I live here, Eglisau is pretty good. I'm not all that impressed by some of the new construction (some are just concrete people boxes maximising the land usage), but it's relatively quiet without being all too provincial, and you're in Germany and Zürich pretty quick.
