Leimbach area review

Can anybody share any feedback/review about how Leimbach neighbourhood is for living with family(very young kids) ?

we were looking for something in Kilchberg/ Adliswil and then saw a few Leimbach apartments advertised on comparis.

The rents seemed low, hence am curious whether the area is nice for families.

Your feedback is highly appreciated.

Seem to be quite a few big high reises in Leimbach. I didn't like it and stuck to Adliswil.

Don't forget, taxes are higher in Leimbach than Adliswil, let alone Kilchberg...

Re: Leimbach area review

We are living in Adliswil currently, and I guess even though its only 2 KM distance - whatever said and done - Adliswil is a bigger town than Adliswil. With Migros opening recently shopping might have eased, but there´s nothing much to be done in Liembach....Besides, it´s being in Zurich vs. not

Re: Leimbach area review

Hi,

We have the chance to move to Leimbach. The area seems a bit "desert". Was it my impression? We are currently living in Kreis 3, Wiedikon and we have shops and everyting around... Can you please comment on this? I have a daughter, 6 yo, she would have to change school... Thank you.

It looks like there is not much sun there, as it is a valley. Not much going on there but they are building huge apartment complexes there now, so they probably think it will be a booming disctrict soon.

Re: Leimbach area review

yeah, I just drove past. There is a huge event going on by Leimbach standards: the first day of the new bakery!

Re: Leimbach area review

A Bakery sounds good! The problem with Leimbach - at least today - is that I am falling in love with Kilchberg...

Re: Leimbach area review

Did you decide to move to Kilchberg or Leimbach?

Hi!

We have actually moved to Kreis 7!

But I still love Kilchberg.

Something which was not really mentioned. Leimbach is part of the City of Zurich Kreis 2 (Wollishofen, Enge, Leimbach).

Kreis 7 very most likely has more sun than Leimbach.

Two of those high rises are old age homes. There's a large density of them. It's a good neighbourhood if you like calm family socialising and parks. There's a bunch of new Minergie buildings going up, so I suspect rents will increase. It used to be on my way to work on bike before WFH.

Generally, it seems like a nice neighborhood. The grocery stores in the area have terrible selection though. Maybe the fancy new buildings will bring better selection in the grocery stores.

Re: Leimbach area review

Leimbach is locked in a narrow valley. Heavy road traffic. And the sun disappears very early behind Uetliberg. Not a recommended place.
