Re: Job in Olten, to stay or commute from Zurich or Lucerne!

I have lived in Olten the past year. I had planned to stay here for a couple of months initially as it is close to my work and the move to Basel or Zürich. However, the town is bigger than I had initially anticipated. The old town is quite nice and the outdoor swimming pool was a lovely surprise during teh summer. That said it isn't as beautiful as some of the other towns but the big advantage I have found is it is so well connected to the surrounding cities with Bern, Basel, Luzern and Zürich within 30 mins.
I decided to stay here for this reason, I was able to go to any of the aformentioned cities at the weekends or for any evening events that may arise as well as being able to get from Olten to some of my favourite hiking/ running trails at the weekend much quicker from Olten than from Zürich or Basel.
