Re: Can anyone tell us about living in Hittnau?

Hi, I don't live in Hittnau but I live just down the road (in Fehraltorf). The area around Lake Pfäffikon is lovely, and I don't really think you can go wrong in Hittnau. It's a small town so I'm sure there is just one school. I imagine it may not have the greatest public transport, but it's just up the road from Pfäffikon, which is on the S3 line to Zurich. There is so much to do around here, we really love the Züri-Oberland region. There is good shopping (big Coop and Migros in Pfäffikon and both open until 8pm, as well as big shops in Wetzikon), great outdoor activities (fabulous pool and lake-beach, biking, hiking, Jucker Farm, dinosaur museum, etc etc), The WAC in Uster if you need after-school English lessons or playgroups, farm stands that sell produce, meat, milk, etc., lots of nice little shops and cafe's (Sunday brunch in Steiner in Fehraltorf esp. nice!), etc.

Hope that helps.

Thank you so much! This sounds exactly what we are looking for. We have two young boys, so this is really the lifestyle we want. We are relatively moderate in our german speaking ability (improving all the time) but both our kids speak fluent swiss german, so we think moving will be easier than it was when we first arrived. Thanks so much for your reply!
