Family-friendly quarters in Zürich - where?

I'm Swiss but I don't know Zurich very well, although I was born there but have never lived in Zurich down-town.

Can someone recommend me family-friendly / kids-friendly places to live in Zürich city? (Kreis 1 or 2 or 3 or so....)

Thanks a million

Re: Family quaters in Zürich - where?

IMO, almost everywhere is kid friendly. Perhaps you might also want to consider the city of Wädenswil which is south west of the Zurich city area, reachable by train in about 25 minutes.

you might want to try the enge or hottingen - whereby the rents might be prohibitive. i lucked out in hottingen, but i've lived here umpteen years.

Re: Family-friendly quarters in Zürich - where?

Yeah, 8006/8032 is great with kids but if subsidies are part of the equation, then the rents will probably be outside the budget. I would also suggest Alt-Oerlikon, Albisrieden or Wollishofen.

Re: Family-friendly quarters in Zürich - where?

For cheaper housing you could try Leimbach and Sood-Oberleimbach, Brunau, and the area above Sihlcity (Albisrieden ? Triemli ?).

We used to live in Witikon and it's a lovely area, if your budget stretches to 2500 for 4-5 rooms. We got a demolition rental for 2 years there for 1500 for 5 rooms, which was awesome...but moved around to Adliswil (not Zurich city zone) because of work and it's cheaper and more multi-cultural which feels for us more like 'home'...
