The area of the left shore of lake Zurich is one of the most attractive places to live in Switzerland. Almost all communities feature an impressive view over lake Zurich and the Glarner Alps. Being close to the city centers of Zurich, Zug and Luzern as well as the connection to freeways are additional advantages that are of great interest to both, enterprises and individuals. With Adliswil, Kilchberg, Rüschlikon, Thalwil and Oberrieden the area features many urban and fancy communities with excellent infrastructure and brilliant connection to public transportation. Great shopping opportunities, many activities for culture and leisure time as well as public and private schools with exquisite reputation are among the advantages especially appealing to families.
The left shore of lake Zurich also includes very rural communities like Hütten which has an own little lake itself, and Schönenberg which features sound landscapes and farms. Who loves quietness and country life will enjoy living here.
Popular leisure time destinations are Sihlwald, Uetliberg, lake Zurich with its boat trips and water sport activities, Park im Grüne, Island Ufenau and Einsiedeln which is close by. This list may be enlarged at will. 120.000 inhabitants cannot be wrong and enjoy living on the left shore of lake Zurich with its marvelous sunrises on the other lakeside. All communities share a significantly high standard of living. Being well connected to the airport Kloten as “door to the world” is another important location factor.
