About this listing
Cosy and very special place in the city of Winterthur - which is a great place on its own - but also an ideal place to venture into Zurich and the rest of Switzerland. Public transport within 200m from our doorstep.
Nice big & sunny room in a very old house originating from the 15th century. In the center of Oberwinterthur with shops, cafés in walking distance. Besides we are only some 3km from main station Winterthur.
Easy access to all sights on foot, by bus, train or bicycle. In Winterthur there are great museums, theatres, cinemas, plenty of bars and clubs, an attractive city-center, castles, churches, industrial-sights etc. Also in easy reach is Zurich - only 25 minutes to Zurich main station by direct train.
Organic/biologically renovated house, e.g. with wooden floors / ceilings and some clay walls. Guests are asked for respect and taking care of the place.
TV and broadband internet available for free. Owner (long-distant cycler, vegetarian, middle-aged, interested in everything related to travelling) lives and works in same house. We will try to help you on any question regarding sights/food/excursions etc. Linen and towels provided, in the meantime we offer a large double bed (180x200cm) instead of the futon!

Interaction with Guests
We live in the same house and (given we are home) are here for our guests for whatever question arising. Common activities on mutual wish (very welcomed)!
Oberwinterthur is the original Roman settlement in Winterthur. Today it conserves a character of its own, a small town within the city..
Public transport to all corners of the greater Zurich area just a few steps from our door. Very frequent to downtown Winterthur (5 min), Zurich main station (20 min). Airport is some 20km away, easy accessible by train or car.
