Schaff vs. Winterthur

Costs and taxes aside, if you had to choose to live in Schaffhausen or Winterthur which would you chose and why? (My job would be in Schaffhausen.)

Schaffi. It's better.

EDIT: it's schaffi, not schaff

Re: Schaff vs. Winterthur

If your job is in Schauffhausen then why would you choose to commute from Winterthur?

I live Winterthur area and both are great but there is absolutely nothing wrong with Schauffhausen and its also closer to germany which is a big plus for shopping.

Re: Schaff vs. Winterthur

Schaffhausen is lovely. I work in Schaffhausen but live just a few miles out on the Zurich side of the Rhein, best of both worlds. Try looking at surrounding areas such as Feuerthalen, Flurglingen, Uhwiesen, Dachsen, if you really want to live in Kanton Zurich, they're all a stone's throw away from Schaffhausen. Which company are you joining?

Jerry,

I am not around, I am still in the process of deciding to move to Switzerland or not. I just wanted to get some opinions on which location is "better" when asking people in the know.

Though if I do decide to come over, I could definately use a beer drinking buddy...can never have enough of those if you ask me!

Cheers!

Re: Schaff vs. Winterthur

I have been living in Schaffhausen for 5 years now and I really enjoy it. 15 mins walk to work is such a luxury, only 40 mins train ride to Zurich. Let us know if you decide to move here, always like to welcome new expats to the area.

Re: Schaff vs. Winterthur

You should check out Beringen. That's where my family and I will be moving to in September and it looked like a very nice area. Close to Schaffhausen and of course all of the great shopping in Germany!!

Re: Schaff vs. Winterthur

Schaffhausen beats Winterthur easily, much nicer old town, Rhine, proximity to Germany, great nature etc.

I just relocated to Schaffhausen from Zürich, anyone up for a beer this week?

Winterthur.

More museums, more bars, more restaurants, more expats, closer to Zürich (15 minutes by train), quicker to Konstanz. Winterthur train station forms the hub between east and west Switzerland.
