Glattfelden (close to Bulach and Eglisau)

Anyone have experience living in or around Glattfelden? I am considering buying a house there, and I think my enthusiasm is tainting by perspective a little bit, because so far I have only come up with positive points:
- Only 35 minutes by train to Zurich
- Close to Germany (for shopping)
- Town looks nice (or parts of it does)
- Tax rates reasonable
- Housing prices manageable
- Plenty of things to see in the area (Rhein)

My only negative points are that the town seems quite boring, and there is no way I can drive to work (Zurich).

Any and all pointers are welcome - especially negative points

Cheers,
WT

Good point. I will have to check that out, although Kloten is a good 10-20 Km away, it is quite possible Glattfelden is in the direct line when the aircraft come in for landing.

May I ask what did you end up doing?
