New in Thalwil

Hi all,

Well a short introduction, as I am moving to Thalwil with my husband next week and, honestly, we are really keen on it.
We loved Thalwil from the beginning, but got advised that getting a nice flat there was something almost impossible, so we forgot about it.

At the end and quite surprisingly we got a nice flat in Thalwil, so we are very glad about it.
My husband is Swedish and I am Spanish and we hope we find in Thalwil a place where we can enjoy and feel at home, even when you are “not at all at home”…

(Btw, it was very nice and helpful reading you over the past years, until we finally made our move to ZH. So thanks for all the information you posted here over the years…)

Re: New in Thalwil

Hi, and welcome to both the EF & Switzerland!! I live near Thalwil (just over the ridge beside the Sihl, really) and while I'm not overly familiar with Thalwil the general feel of the area on my side of the ridge is one of multicultural comfort ... I mean, I can walk to both a Portguese and an Indian/Sri Lankan grocery store! I especially like the opening hours of the Indian/Sri Lankan one (Mon - Sat, 10:00 - 22:00!).

Get into the Social Events thread and find out what's happening around the place, I'm sure you'll find something nearby that grabs your fancy!

Where is this Indian/Sri Lankan store?

As I said, I'm over the ridge (near Adliswil) - it's in a little shopping plaza on Kilchbergstrasse, near the Sihl. They do some great curry pastes. I followed the directions on one, and it blew the heads off the kids and our Romanian guest. Even I found it exciting! I think it's called Krone Lädeli - they have 5kg bags of Basmati rice, as well, which we buy regularly, and milk and so on ... good for emergencies, but they don't have a full range of stuff.
Oh, did I mention they also have good ginger beer? Elephant ginger beer, good stuff!

Re: New in Thalwil

By the way Araqyl
Could you also explain where is the portuguese grocery??
Being an Spaniard myself, maybe the have some thing that remind me from home… And this kind of shops don't have websites..

The Portuguese place is on Wachtstrasse, right next to Wachtbrücke (crossing the Sihl). I've only been in there once, to get some cold Sagres (when I somehow managed to run out!). The sign is red, on top of an earth bank (opposite the reformed church's Gemeindehaus (community hall) and playground).
