Who we are

  1. We are a family with 12 year old fraternal twin boys. We are non-smokers. Please note that we try to have a 4-week vacation within the given time spans. Dad is working as a staff scientist in the life science department of a big research Institute. Mom is a teacher at an elementary school. Since our sons are at school we are bound to a fixed vacation schedule. We like hiking and collecting mushrooms in the area close to our home. During summer we often go by train to Zurich and the nearby lake for swimming or go rafting on one of the many local rivers. Dad has been to UC Berkeley as a research associate and we have returned to the US many times.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live at a central place in northern Switzerland close to the rivers Aare, Reuss and Limmat. The landscape is very green and ideal for outdoor activities. Seven beautiful lakes are within a one hour drive and several picturesque towns can be reached easily by public transportation. The bus leaves every 15 min: The Zurich airport is reached within 45 minutes, Baden 15 min, Zurich 30 min, Basel 1 h, Bern 1h, Lucerne 2 h. A visit to the Black Forest in Germany takes a two hours trip. Going to Geneva or Southern Switzerland (Ticino) by train requires 3 hours. Similarly, the wine region of Alsace in France is not far away. Also western Austria or the Swiss high Alps are within reach of a one-day excursion.
