Temporary housing in Zurich

Temporary housing in Zurich

With almost 400,000 inhabitants, Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland and the capital of the canton of the same name. The surrounding area is densely populated and around 1.8 million people live in the entire metropolitan region. Despite its relatively small population, Zurich is an international city. This is due to Zurich’s role as an international financial centre with large banks such as UBS and Credit Suisse, as well as large insurance companies (such as Zurich Insurance Group and Swiss Re). There are also various media companies, plus two colleges and universities. Accordingly, business travelers frequent the city. In addition to accommodation in a hotel, a furnished apartment is a more cost-effective alternative.

Popular neighbourhoods in Zurich

Zurich is not only an important banking centre but also a historic city, nestled in beautiful nature. You can live very well here, especially in the the most beautiful districts of Old Town, in Seefeld and the emerging Aussershil.

Zurich’s Old Town

The Old Town is the historical core of Zurich. Originally called Kleine Stadt (little town), this district is located in the little town on the left of the Limmat River and the Big City (now known as Doerfli or Niederdorf), on the right of the Limmat. Here is also the city hall, which is still used today. In addition, there are several shops and restaurants in Niederdorf. Another feature is the house in Spiegelgasse 14, where Lenin lived during his stay in Zurich.The history of this part of the town is particularly visible in the small town of Limmat. The Schipfe is one of Zurich’s oldest neighbourhoods. The name recalls the skippers who once left their boats ( “schupften” as pushed) into the water. The bow of the former harbour wall can still be seen in the little town.

Zurich’s district Aussersihl

For a long time, the borough of Aussersihl, which was incorporated in 1893, was used by the city to outsource unpleasant things like prostitution. Therefore, for a long time it was home to Zurich’s red light district and drug scene. The bad reputation comes particularly a corner that is colloquially referred to as Bermuda Triangle: on a section of the Langstrasse between the border of Circle 5 and the Hohlstrasse was a raging nightlife, especially the prostitution. But now the neighborhood is changing. The relatively low rents have lured students and creatives. Now, many cool new bars have opened and architectural office is planning the restoration of old buildings.

The districts of Fluntern, Hottingen, Hirslanden and Witikon

Fluntern, Hottingen, Hirslanden and Witikon form the 7th district of Zurich, which is located directly east of the old town. Thanks to the good public transport network, you are quickly in the middle of the city and the popular lake is also nearby. Especially for families and people who like it a bit quieter, the 7th district is very well suited to live here temporary. Fluntern is also home to the Zurich Zoo, which is perfect for a family daytrip.

Living in Seefeld in Zurich

With the Villa Egli, the Hermann Haller studio and the Le Corbusier Pavilion, Seefeld offers a lot of culture in one location. In addition, the city is expanding the area around the Höschgasse to a meeting place to create a museum district. For this purpose, individual garden elements are being restored and creating new seating areas. Even today, the neighbourhood is absolutely worth seeing. In the summer, the studio Hermann Haller gives a free insight into the work and activities of the Swiss sculptor who died in 1950. The Villa Egli is a dream location, right on the lake next to the Chinagarten. It is decorated by extraordinary craftsmanship and is, therefore, a protected monument. The Le Corbusier Pavilion was created by the artist of the same name, one of the most important Swiss artists of the last century. The colourful, filigree building is regarded worldwide as an architectural masterpiece and is one of the most famous sights in Zurich.
