considering moving to new location

Hello,

I'm working in Luzern and my wife in Zurich.
we plan that our two newborns will go to a kita in the area of Zurich.
My wife has no car, and plans to travel by public transportation.

where would be the ideal location to live?
we thought about zug, just because its in the middle between Luzern and Zurich, and there is a direct train to Zurich from Zug.
I will have an easy access to the highway, direction Luzern.

we noticed that there are further other locations between Luzern and Zurich (e.g. Thalwil, A.am albis etc.).
any better location/s than Zug to think of (considering the above details)?

Thanks!

Zug is the heat death of the universe - with a lake.

Thalwil, on the other hand, is quite nice - with a lake.

Aeugst am Albis or Affoltern am Albis? Better say Affoltern a.A.

I suggest you live wherever the kids' "kita" is located, seems a bit pointless all of you having to travel every day

Re: considering moving to new location

indeed, someone will have to commute longer - either the kids or myself.

But there are other considerations to such decision, such as tax rate on income, quality of life, heat (as mentioned by dougal's breakfast).

its somewhat difficult to weigh all together
