Post it here, its a Newsletter for apartments in and around Zurich, only for flats not shown on homegate etc. It's free for people who advertise a flat.

Re: Best Place to advertise a rental apartment

Local newspapers + HR department of international companies.

I tried various websites like the ones already mentioned, forums, free sites like piazza.ch and gratis-inserate.ch etc., notes in the supermarket but the only thing that really worked were HR + homegate. You do get replies through other media, but many of them are unserious or from people who can not get an apartment otherwise.

However, for me Homegate was most succesful. At first I was reluctant because of the fees, but as soon as I used Homegate I got like 30 phonecalls a day instead of 2 per week, and the apartment was gone within a month. Apparently this is where the Swiss are looking, it's really worth it.

A friend of mine was trying to advertise her apartment in Thun. Homegate did not really work for her, but as soon as she put it in the local paper, calls kept coming in. So I guess it depends on the region, maybe also on the type of property.
