There are numerous accommodations from which you can reach all the sights within walking distance. A holiday apartment in the old town is therefore the perfect starting point to quickly reach the Opera House, the Kunsthaus, the Town Hall or the shores of Lake Zurich.Enjoy the peace and quiet of a holiday apartment on the outskirts of the city
In the outskirts of Zurich there are also some accommodations, which offer you the advantages of a green area and at the same time a good traffic connection.

In addition, you can still easily reach supermarkets, cafés and restaurants from a vacation rental on the outskirts.

These personalities include Hermann Hesse, Max Frisch, Antonio Ligabue and James Joyce.

From here you can quickly reach most of the exhibition houses and cultural events that still deal with the works of these personalities today.
