Perks for the Parents

This ground floor apartment of a family home in western Zürich comes with the offer of the hosts’ expertise of the area for a true locals experience. A delicious breakfast with freshly home-baked bread, homemade jam and homegrown fruits from the garden is available for a small premium, on request. Parents love the light-filled master bedroom, green garden views and convenient family amenities.

Why Kids Love it

Kids will feel at home with open spaces to run and play indoors and out and a beautiful green garden to roam. A high chair, travel crib and children’s toys and books are available on request. Family bikes are provided to explore the city on wheels and the shared bathroom includes a bathtub for simple bath time with small children. Take the tram or train into the city (under 10 minutes away) to explore together.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 days. The host family occupies the top 2 floors of the house and personally greets all guests upon arrival; they are willing to help with any questions about the city and offer the best places to eat, shop, see, often well off the typical tourist trail. A parking space is also available on the property for 10 CHF a night. The city is often best discovered on bike, and family bikes are available to use.

About the Location

Zürich Binz train station is a 5-minute walk away, running to Zürich main station in a 4-minute train ride. Tramlines run from Laubegg, a 5 minutes’ walk away, to Paradeplatz in the center of town.

Style Notes

Bright and fresh. This tasteful family apartment is full of natural light and furnished to a very high standard with a fully equipped kitchen and romantic garden. Light floors and walls, pastel hues, and a mix of modern and antique details create a calming ambience. We love the modern light fixtures, draping curtains and mix of design chairs around the table.

We loved our stay in Zurich. The hosts welcomed us, had a few items waiting in the fridge, and let us use their bikes and outdoor wood oven. They promptly answered our questions too. Our family of four (two boys aged 6 and 9) felt at home. The flat is a good base for exploring Zurich (the train into central Zurich was a short walk and easy to use) and for day trips by car. Lots of restaurants, grocery stores, a bake shop and butcher within walking distance (all outlined in a guide created by the host). We also took the train up the mountain (Uetliberg) and walked through the forest to Jurablick - a quaint restaurant with delicious cakes. On a cool day our boys loved putting their hands in the Kachelofen!

Zürich, Switzerland

Lakefront living and circus fun

For a captivating city with outdoor opportunities, historic towers and some really special cake shops, look no further. First stop: the lake. In summer you can swim in open air pools and the lake itself; in winter the scenery itself is worth the walk. Circus culture is very popular in Switzerland and the city’s circus schools are a fun way to try it out - Kinderzirkus is a popular choice. Kinder City, Zürich Zoo and Trampolino are further ways to entertain the kids, rain or shine.
