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.

From the house, it’s just a 2 minutes walk to the no. 6 tram and no. 33 bus, 5 minutes to the no. 5 tram. Hence you can experience the city‘s popular attractions without having to rent a car. Within a 10 minutes tram ride you‘ll be at the shores of lake Zurich, the main train station (with trains coming from and leaving to the airport every 7 minutes), or the Bahnhofstrasse, the city’s famous upscale shopping street.
