where would you live, Hohenrain (Luzern) or Aesch b.Neftenbach (Winterthur)

Hello,

I am contemplating renting two similar homes in these two areas. Trouble is I dont know much about either place. Could anyone kindly please tell me what one might expect in living in either of these locations? Feel free to say anything, good or bad. I appreciate your insights.
Kind regards
CC

I'd choose Hohenrain (it's easier to pronounce)..

Seriously.. I find the Luzern area much nicer than around Winterthur.

Neftenbach, if proximity to Zurich and its amenities/ infrastructure/ hospitals/ Universities, jobs, etc. is important. Confess, I live in ZH and am prejudiced!

If there are no other considerations other than regional amenities, beauty and life in general, Luzern hands down.

Thank you all for your kind replies. I would love to base my decision on the beauty of Luzern, which I agree is superior. Given the advice, I must be pragmatic and go for the location that is better suited to English speaking jobs, university, etc. I know the closer to Zurich I get the better my exposure will be. When I strike it rich and learn the language I will head over to Luzern!!

Thanks for your thoughts!
