Thalwil: One of the top ten places to live in Switzerland

Thalwil: One of the top ten places to live in Switzerland

In the 2018 ratings in the Weltwoche weekly newspaper, Thalwil was voted the eighth best place to live in Switzerland. With good reason, and for plenty of reasons.

For example, as we have said, it has excellent road and public transport links. Then there are the many green spaces and the two swimming pools in the lake, Bürger I and Bürger II. From the pier, ferries go to Zurich, across the lake to Meilen, Uetikon, Stäfa and Männedorf, and as far as Rapperswil.

There are some great restaurants – do you prefer to go to what many connoisseurs regard as one of the best Thai restaurants in Switzerland, or perhaps enjoy the dolce vita at Portofino by the lake? – lots of independent shops, a traditional village feel, various sports facilities including several football pitches, over 150 sports and other clubs, schools ranging from kindergartens to secondary level… In Thalwil you’ll find everything you need for a fine life. And for a fine home, live at Im Fink.

Best accessibility by car or public transport

400m to Oberrieden train station, 800m to Oberrieden-Dorf train station

By car, the A3 to Zurich or Chur, with quick connections to Zug, Lucerne and Berne, is just 5 minutes’ drive away, with no traffic jams. But the best thing is that there could hardly be more public transport options than there are at Im Fink. You can catch the train at no fewer than three stations. The station in Oberrieden is barely 400 metres away. From the station in Thalwil, 1.5 kilometres away, you can reach Zurich Central Station in just 10 minutes, while from Oberrieden Dorf, it takes just 14 minutes to get to Zug, or 39 minutes to Lucerne. From the nearby bus stop, there are fast and regular bus services to the centre of Thalwil, to Horgen and the See-Spital hospital and to Zurich.

Very close by, within walking or cycling distance, the amenities include a bilingual pre-school and kindergarten, primary and secondary schools, the eastern edge of the Sihlwald forest – perfect for relaxation – a Co-op supermarket, the popular Bicki-Lade farm shop and delicatessen, petrol stations – and much more.

Start living, with everything close at hand

The gently sloping site makes all the difference: it elevates the buildings so they have views of both the lake and the mountains. Ground floor, 1st  floor, 2nd floor, top floor: the higher you go, the better the view. And the lake is less than 250 metres away, as the crow flies. At Im Fink, everything is close at hand – no fewer than three train stations, and a motorway junction just five minutes’ drive away. And something parents will love: the nearest childcare centre, run by the “Stiftung Kindertagesstätte (Kita) Thalwil, is right here in the same residential development. At Im Fink, you can just move in and start living.

The 4 buildings of the Im Fink development are well-screened from the traffic and blend harmoniously into this extremely quiet residential area. In these high-quality homes, you’ll have a high quality of life – and be close to the things that matter in life.
