Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange


Our house was built in 1530. It is a former farmhouse and is placed today under a preservation order. It was carefully and entirely renovated in 1996. We inhabit one side of it, our neighbours are another family. The living space is approximately 150m2. Behind the house is a garden with a barbecue area and next door is a court with plenty of outdoor toys. The garden and the court are used by the families of our house and the house next door. They are supportive, if you need any information or help.

Our family consists of two adults and four children. Marco is a software engineer and Judith is a lecturer in pedagogy. The three boys and the girl are aged between 9 and 16 years. Sometimes all of them join us during vacation, sometimes the older ones stay with family or friends.

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We live in the city of Zurich in a very family-friendly neighborhood. A tramway/bus stop is just round the corner. You can reach the center of Zurich and the main station within 15 minutes by public transport, the airport within 30 minutes.

Our district is a former farming and vinegrowing village, grown together with Zurich. Right behind the house is an appealing public playground. Shops are within three minutes walking distance. A takeaway and a restaurant are right over the street. The forest is nearby, as well as more playgrounds, family cafés, and the Hönggerberg with an amazing view. There is a swimming facility at the river Limmat as well as in- and outdoor swimming pools. A tennis court and further sport facilities are also within short distance.
