Gay Life, St Gallen, Winterthur, Zurich

Dear All,

I just accepted a job offer in St Gallen however am not sure where to live. In terms of cultural activities and gay life, is it better in St Gallen, or Winterthur or Zurich? Given, there is a major difference in terms of income tax payments and rent in each of these cities. What would you recommend? Would appreciate your feedback.

Kind Regards,
NYLANY

The taxes in the canton st.gallen are a lot higher the in the canton of zurich.
But commuting with the sbb from zurich to st.gallen takes a lot of time.
Depending on your workplace in st.gallen and your flat here in zurich,you will
loose 3-4 hours a day .

It might depend on where you are from and what permit you are given. I think with some permits you're limited to living in the canton where you work.

Just get a temporary place near to your work then make a judgement after visiting Winterthur and ZH. As blacbird says, if your work is a long way from the main station the commute could be crippling.
