What we're missing in Adliswil is a decent Indian restaurant, but there is one called Ginger in Thalwil, and also one near Oberreiden that was quite good last time I tried it -
But instead we have an Indian temple and a huge indian bazar once a year...

Hilarious.

There are some "ethnic eastern europeans" too, indeed. And not all of them work as drivers, cleaners and mechanics. Figure that.
Indeed. Adliswil is one of the most popular living areas for Google employees, especially the ones who have families. It has a good train connection to Google office, and some of them cycle or even jog from home to work.

If I was going to buy a place in or around Zurich then Adliswil would be very high on my list of considerations. My reasons being:
  • It's placed along the limmat, which is imo one of the most beautiful areas in the Kanton. Tons of places to walk and bike.
The limmat does not flow in Adliswil... It's the Sihl!

Right.
And for the unlikely event of the dam at Sihlsee breaking, OP better lives on Büchelring than next to the train-station.

Sure, you are right and I inadvertantly mixed it up when I posted. It's the Sihl.

There was an interesting flood of downtown Adliswil, i think in 2005... i was very happy they organised this for me as it really helped me to feel at home. Still remember evacuating for the 1995 floods of central Netherlands...

Re: Living in Adliswil

FWIW, I've been living in Adliswil for 12 years and I have loved it. I'd say it's less upscale than Kilchberg/Rüschlikon, but even greener. So for us outdoor lovers, it's perfect.

What we're missing in Adliswil is a decent Indian restaurant, but there is one called Ginger in Thalwil, and also one near Oberreiden that was quite good last time I tried it - Chalet India. There is however a small Indian grocery store which we love, and they want to be able to do takeaways but they weren't able to get permission to set up a kitchen.

I think I saw an indian restaurant in Ober-Leimbach recently, but who knows if it's still in operation. With all the developments in the area, things might change in the next couple of years.

I saw somewhere on the Adliswil website, while looking for something else, that about 70% of Adliswil is "forest" - this of course includes the various hiking, cycling, and vita parcours trails, and it's right near one end of the Planetenweg (Planet Walk) which starts at Uetliberg (so you can walk or cycle along the ridge to there as well).

The local pool and library are great (the library has a fairly large selection in a range of languages, and you can borrow board games and console games), and you can even get up to the Kilchberg pool if you're after a bit of variety.
Adliswil pool is fantastic though, they have an indoor pool space with three pools (adjustable depth 'lesson' pool (with some ropes/climbing bits that dangle into it), short lap pool, and diving pool with 1m and 3m boards) and then outside they have more pools - wading-depth pool (up to about 1.5m at the deepest, at the foot of the 2m-wide water slide), 'fun' pool (with a whirlpool section), and short lap/diving pool. There's also a kiddy pool (covered by shade cloth) with some fun bits, a kids' playground (or is it two now?), beach volleyball court, and an open field for football games or whatever - and a restaurant which is open most of the year. Need a separate membership/entry ticket to the standard "Stadt Adliswil" one, though ... but an annual pass is relatively cheap, I think two visits a month are enough to get the money back.

Oh, yeah, the restaurants are good - and so is the breeze along the Sihl, it cools you off in summer.

Thanks for your answers. We are going to become adliswilers in some time.



What about tip water in Adliswil? Can you drink it?

You can drink tap water pretty much anywhere in Switzerland.
