zones advice: zones advice: Schwamendingen and Adliswil

Hi,


I would like to know how are these areas like:

Schwamendingen(8051)and Adliswil (8134), I will be working in 8004, have checked the map, Adliswil seems to be more far away, but don't know very much about any the zones, are there good services (i.e shops around, entertainment, restaurants etc). I also will be coming with my dog, so green areas are something good to me.

If you live/know these areas I would like to know your opinions!

Thanks!

Christian

Adliswil is far away from Mexico. Schwamendingen is roughly the same distance away.

Re: zones advice: zones advice: Schwamendingen and Adliswil

Schwamendingen, was a village 50 years ago before being sucked into the town of Zurich. The tram line was extended out there via a tunnel about 25 years ago. Though it is a fairly long tram ride out from the centre of Zurich.

Sadly Schwamendinger is a soulless grey place of multiple flat roofed blocks. I wouldn't want to live there, though it does have woods very close by.

Adliswil is not within the city limits of Zurich and thus has different - and they must be lower - tax rates. It is in the shadow of the Uetliberg and has much more of a community feel. Transport in to Zurich is my the Sihltal Bahn, Check www.zvv.ch for times to where you want to go from both places.

Both places have shops (Coop Migros etc), neither is famous for restaurants or nigh-life. Of the two I'd go for Adliswil any day...

Re: zones advice: zones advice: Schwamendingen and Adliswil

Hi Chris: as AbFab already said, Adliswil is preferable by miles to Schwamendingen. Commuting's no problem, it's a pleasant suburb of Zurich, green, river, plenty of exercise space for your dog, more attractive housing (apartment) opportunities etc.
Good luck!
