Moving to Zurich

Hi there-

I will be moving to Zurich in October. I am looking for a place near the train station as I will need to commute daily to Zug. Additionally, I would like to be near restaurants and shopping down town as well as the local gay community. Is living near the train station a good idea?

Re: Moving to Zurich

I don't think living near the trainstation is required to have a good connection. There are multiple stations in Zurich and to be honest the neighbourhood around the station is not the most appealing part of the city.
If you really want to live near HB, choose the other side (not city centre side). That region is upcoming I would say.

Even from Zurich Stadelhofen you can get to Zug in 35minutes. That way, you can be in Seefeld, which is beautiful and the cleanest part of the city.

And the Odeon is right next to Bahnhof Stadelhofen.
And it's VERY importantly to recycle properly!

Recycle properly? Do gay folks historically recycle less properly, then straight ones?

The OP identified himself as newcomer. Has nothing to do with him being gay. Inspired by another thread of last evening.

Re: Moving to Zurich

Hello,

I will also be moving to Zurich and working in Zug and had the same questions that you had. Have you started to do apartment hunting yet? i'm starting now and looking for areas.

If your permit is tied to your employer, as is usually the case for non-EU nationals, you'll be moving to Zug because you can't live anywhere else. You have to live in the same canton that your workplace is based in.

Re: Moving to Zurich

Hello all,

I'm new to Zurich too. Looking to meet some other guys in town as I don't know anyone yet.

To the OP who started the thread - have you found a place yet? I live on Militarstrasse in a temporary flat operated by Vision Apartments. It's not bad for a month. You can do month to month leases, which is useful so you don't need to stress to find a place so quickly. It's about a 4 minute walk from the tracks, relatively quiet, and really convenient to other places around town. I'm moving into a new flat on October 1, so maybe my little 1/2 room place will be available?

-Chris

Re: Moving to Zurich

Thanks for sharing. I'll be starting my apartment search soon. How easy is it to find furnished apartments?
