Hello (Again)

Hello,

This is actually my second introduction. The first was in 2014 at a time when I was considering an offer. I didn't end up taking it. However, now I've signed a contract so no more hedging

One question of many to come: My future employer has reserved a temporary apartment in the Werd neighborhood of Zurich. I have a wife and two daughters. Well, now I see that Werd is part of District 4, a.k.a. the Red Light District.

Can anyone advise if Werd is suitable for a family?

Thank you!

Re: Hello (Again)

Good morning, and welcome to the forum, again.

District 4 is big. It has a few nightclubs, beer bars, but also very nice childrens play parks.

This is an example of a play group in District 4.

Werd is the city centre.
For me, it would be fine for a month or so with little kids, but as you say, its a temporary apartment. But only because I like green. The only hookers there are the ones in business suits.

Check out www.Comparis.ch.
We all rely on public transport here. Many families dont have cars, because they dont need them. It might be too far of a stretch if you have always had a car though. Here are some:

Check out www.sbb.ch, as to how quickly you can get into the city for work, once you find an appartement or house you like.

Don't be deceived by closeness to the city centre - I live near Baden, and the Baden train takes 15 minutes. People living in Thalwil often spend more time traveling.

Oh - tell your wife to check out the MeetUp.com -there are many mothers groups, and running groups - even reading groups etc in Zurich and around.

Re: Hello (Again)

You'll be on the edge of the trendiest quarter in Switzerland. Were it to be a town of its own, the neighbourhood would be the 13th largest community in the whole country. It's urban but in no way sketchy.

Plenty to do, plenty to see, easy to commute.

Relax, and welcome.
