Any experience with Bubikon?

Hi everyone,

We are now considering buying an apartment in Bubikon. I was wondering, if any of you is living in Bubikon or near Bubikon and can share their experience. We will be there with our son and he will be attending the state school.

I know that taxes are on the high side that's for sure but obviously this is reflected in somewhat lower housing prices.

The only other thing that I have seen is the lower non-Swiss population compared to the rest of the Canton Zurich. Our worry was if that would significantly reduce the chances of having expat/English-speaking related free time activities compared to any other place with a higher portion. So any real life experience would help us in our decision a lot.

Thanks everyone
Bora

Always makes me chuckle as the train pulls up to the station when we're on the way to Rapperswil.

"She said 'boobie'".

Never grows old.



Is that not the sort of experience you were after...?

Re: Any experience with Bubikon?

Hi everyone,
I'm bringing up this thread again as we are facing the same situation as barcin in 2016. We are also considering moving to Bubikon with our two young children. On the one hand, the green surrounding and the good train connections are attractive. On the other hand, we are a bit worried that the village is too small with few (childcare) facilities. Is there anyone on this forum that lives in Bubikon and could share some of their experiences with us? Barcin, did you ever make the move to Bubikon? If so, what are your experiences? Thanks in advance for all replies.
Cheers, Maarten

Hi Maarten. I could hardy recall my initial post
No, we ended up moving to Kilchberg. Happy to report back about the experience over here, if this area is an option.

Kilchberg is not really in the region we are focussing on, but thanks a lot barcin.
