Kreis suggestion...

Hi all,
i'm a new member of this forum, and is very helpful with a lot of info about moving in Switzerland.
I'm 34 years old, not married, and i'm thinking to move in Zurich, after making an interview with a company in Josepstrasse; i was searching in the forum info about where to live.
Basically, i would like to have a brief description of some kreis, or to have suggestion from some of you about any neighborhood safe and nice.
I saw some apartments on the internet, located in the north part of the town; or is better to live close to the lake?
Thank you for your help

Andrea

In my humble opinion it depends greatly upon your budget.

I agree. Would also be useful if you could let us know the number of rooms you will require.

Hello,
thank for your answer!
In one week i will discuss with the company about the salary; is a IT job, and i don't know nothing about what they will offer me.
Anyway, i would like to have info and suggestion from person who are living in Zurich, about kreis to "avoid" ;-)
Thank you!

Andrea

ok, i will be alone, i would like to have from 2 up to 3 rooms apt.
I'm right if the average of the rent costs for a flat like that is around 1800-2000 ?

Your decision will depend largely on what sort of person you are, not which area is "cooler".


Personally, I also moved here as a single 34yr old. I live in Wipkingen (Kreis 10) and love it.
It's just out of the city, but still close. The Limmat runs along there which is PERFECT for summer.
....... OK, so there's the odd prostitute strutting her stuff on Sihlstrasse of an evening, but it's also close to the Viadukt markets, and Escherwyss platz clubs and pubs at Hardbrücke.

If you are more of a quiet person, I'd look at area's like Albisrieden (Kreis 9), or head south along the Zurich lake.


Other than this, price will dictate everything.

Expect rental starting prices in the city to kick off around 2,000chf/month.

Outside the city the prices will either fall, or you just get better value for your money.

"Safe area's" can be found almost anywhere between Germany, Austria, Italy, and France. (Kreis 4 is perhaps the one to stay clear of)

Re: Kreis suggestion...

Check out this thread about the best places to live in Zürich . There is lots of information on here in the relevant stickies in each sub-forum. Please look there before asking questions which, at a rough guess, someone (or sometwo or somethree) has asked before.

Welcome to the Forum.
