An apartment for guests, pilgrims and seekers ...
If these words appeal to you, then you might feel comfortable in our apartment. It is located above the village forest in the Zurich Oberland in a quiet and beautiful viewpoint: A new 2-room garden apartment in our older house, where we breathed fresh colors and vitality. The "pilgrim's apartment" with its own access is located in the lower part of the house and is - like the whole house - directed to the south.
It comprises the living room with kitchenette, the bathroom and a double bedroom. The sofa in the living room can be converted into a double bed, so that up to 3 people (or parents with their children) can stay in the apartment on a daily basis. For a week or more we recommend a maximum of 2 persons or parents with 1 child.
Eat-in kitchen with ceramic glass hob. No TV, but wireless connection (wireless). Parking 15m from the house. From the windows you have a clear view of the mountains, and the front door leads directly into the garden, which is open for free use. Over a natural stone staircase you reach in the upper part of the garden a fireplace with magnificent panoramic views over the village and into the Alps. A wonderful place to which it draws us again and again!
* Wald is a beautiful and large village on the edge of the Prealps. It is not always, but very often above the fog, embedded in hills and forest, and even has its own alp - the Scheidegg Alp. Our house is located on the trail route to the Bachtel and in the immediate vicinity of the Jakobweges, which is celebrated by many pilgrims. In summer, the area is ideal for hiking, in winter you can reach the Oberholz and Atzmännig ski areas in just under 15 minutes.
Forest has a big industrial past. It was considered a center of the textile industry and was called "Manchester of Switzerland". Homeland-protected factory buildings and factory villas testify to that time, so that in our village nature and culture harmoniously connect with each other,
* Lake Zurich can be reached by car in 20 minutes. There is Rapperswil with lake promenade, castle, old town and numerous shops. Zurich is also within easy reach. The journey to the largest Swiss city takes 35 minutes, with public transport 40 minutes. This is the charm of this village: that both are within reach - the mountains as well as the city.
