What is the Best City in CH and Why?

My Swiss husband and I have spent the last 1 1\2 year in Winterthur.
We want to move but we want some of your opinions on cities you know.

We love urban to live in but to be close to nature or a least have a view of it.
We love New York City and California for the energy, but we love things Swiss and are looking for people with sincerity and whose word is their bond.

We have a very small budget to get an apartment-1350chf and we would like to have a least 2 1\2 rooms and a balcony or private garden place.

My husband will also be looking for a job now too and so we would like an area that is not depressed regarding the job market and more liberal in hiring someone over 50- but who speaks 2 languages fluently and has a university
education.

We appreciate any input you all might have. You write such great opinions
and give wonderful advice. We would love to benefit from it.

Best to All

Re: What is the Best City in CH and Why?

I would advise getting a new job, & then looking for a nice area. Finding a job over age of 50 can be very difficult!

The area Bern to Fribourg is quite good, low housing costs, lowish tax in Fribourg, good countryside. Easy to reach Bern or Fribourg.

Taxation is often higher west of Olten. http://www.estv2.admin.ch/d/dienstle...uerrechner.htm

Lugano, as Italian is spoken there, and it's close to Italy.

Re: What is the Best City in CH and Why?

I agree with Sbrinz, you need to sort the job out first and then move after. It's no good finding a place you like near Lausanne say, if your husband has to commute to Zurich every day.
