When walking around the city of Zurich, you quickly realise how diverse its 12 districts are: The architectural style, leisure facilities, shops, bars and restaurants are all very different. But there are also big differences when it comes to rents. A new overview from Homegate shows what it's like to live in the various districts and how much you have to pay.

Living in the city of Zurich is a great experience. The versatile city on the waterfront is considered the economic centre of Switzerland and has a lot to offer: many job opportunities, a huge range of leisure and cultural activities, and a large selection of different bars and restaurants.

Wollywood does not equal Hipkingen

But not all Zurichs are the same. With its 12 districts and 34 neighbourhoods, Zürich has its own culture, unique offerings and character, depending on where you are. A new article from Homegate gives prospective as well as long-established Zurich residents an entertaining overview of what Zurich's various districts have to offer: from Wollywood to Hipkingen, from Chreis Cheib to Schwamhatten. And it shows how deep you have to dig into your pocket depending on the district.

Large differences in rents

Because it's no secret that living in Zurich is expensive. After all, the city on the Limmat is one of the most expensive cities in the world. However, there are big differences in rental prices depending on the city district, as the evaluation of Homegate shows. For example, an average 3.5-room flat in district 1 costs CHF 4150, almost twice as much as in district 12 at CHF 2190. Anyone currently looking for a flat in the city of Zurich can therefore save a lot of money by comparing prices between the individual city districts.
