DE to Zurich daily commute
 
Are there people living just across the border in Germany who work in Zurich? What is the commute time and best towns to consider?

Having lived in Neuhausen and worked near Zurich Airport: between 30 minutes and 2 hrs (one way)

Why would you want to put yourself through that to get to Zürich? Your quality of life would be so much better with a shorter commute.

i had a colleague who did it from across the boarder of schaffhausen to zurich/zug. i can't remember which.

i do remember that it took him about 2 hours by car and was severely detrimental to his health and family life.

According to Swiss statistics for 3Q 2015, there were 9,480 cross-border employees working in Zurich. I would presume that most are commuting from Germany (and not Austria, France, Italy, Liechtenstein or London):
