Moving from Uster to Canton Schwyz - advice needed

Hi

I have a new job in Pfaffikon SZ and my husband works in Zurich. The commute is killing me at the moment as I have to take my 1 year old in the car and it can sometimes take up to 1.5 hours with the Rapperswil bridge.

I do not know the area round there very well. Can anyone suggest nice towns to live that are close to Pfaffikon with good links to Zurich too?

We need a 4.5 room apartment preferably with parking.

Thanks

Laura

I forgot to include Einsiedeln, SZ as well.

You have the S13 to Wädenswil and thereon with many trains to Zürich and better still the S40 to work.

S40 route:

Rapperswil – Pfäffikon SZ – Samstagern – Einsiedeln and back.

S13 route: Wädenswil – Einsiedeln and back

There are special trains from Einsiedeln via Wädenswil to Zürich Alstetten bypassing Zürich HB at peak office hours and from 16:00 for 2 hours.

Surely Pfaffikon is where you want to be. You can get the S2 (38 minutes), S8 (43 minutes), S5 (44 minutes) and the IR (20 minutes) to HB. Also easy to access the A3 motorway, under half an hour into town.

You should also use the tax calculator to see how much you will save on taxes moving from Uster to Pfaffikon. You could use the money saved to up your housing budget.

Pfaffikon is great. You have a dual English/Swiss nursery for your child, a few nice badis around, great sports facilities and so on.
