The Swiss Villa is located on a quiet residential street in Zurich’s most prestigious district (no. 7, „Zurichberg“). There are 3 grocery stores, 2 bakeries, a post office, a drug store, 2 pharmacies, a dry cleaner and a flower shop in near walking distance. The zoo with its renowned Masoala Rain Forest hall and many jogging/walking trails in or near the wood are just 3 tram stops away from the Swiss Villa. The campus of Zurich University is also only a 5 minutes tram ride away, therefore the house is a popular place to stay for faculty members or workshop attendants.
