Living in Zurich working in Baar, Zug

Hello -

Could someone help identify the best Zurich neighborhoods to live in for my wife and I (no kids). We are in our mid 40's and are active and would like to be close to restaurants, bars, urban life. We are looking for a larger place +150 square meters and have three small dogs. I will be working in Baar, Zug and would like to be transit friendly.

Any direction would be appreciated.

Thanks

With three dogs - plus needing a large place, urban lifestyle - I wouldn't be too choosy about neighborhoods. Take the place that will accept you.

Be prepared to compromise, and be prepared to pay a premium. It can be difficult to find housing with multiple dogs in the household, even small ones.

Good luck!

There are a lot of new appartments being built in Kreis 5 near Zurich HB.

This one may suit you - http://immobilien.trovit.ch/index.ph...1/page.1/pop.0

Re: Living in Zurich working in Baar, Zug

Hello there. I live in the Sihlcity (8045 Zurich) area and love it. It is incredibly well connected. The train to Zurich HB is just 3 minutes, and there are lots of buses and trams into town. It is also an excellent place with the dogs, as you are in walking distance to Brunau Park - the largest dog park in Zurich.

We take our little guy there 2-3 times per week and it is so huge you can walk/hike for 3 hours and still keep going further! We often do that on the weekend and then take the train back to our place. The dogs can also just run around and play with lots of other dogs to tire themselves out if you do not feel like using up too much of your own energy!

There is also a nice walk along the Sihl River which is our more regular daily outing as the trail is only 2 minutes away.

My place is 133m2, so a little smaller than what you are looking for, but if you are interested, it is available as of Mid-August.
