The district of Horgen and life on the "Silver Coast"
The district of Horgen is located in the canton of Zurich and stretches across the left bank of Lake Zurich, which is also affectionately known as the "Silver Coast" in the vernacular. The district municipalities of Kilchberg, Adliswil, Rüschlikon, Thalwil, Horgen, Wädenswil and Richterswil offer their own individual advantages - whereas all are very well positioned in terms of quality of life, closeness to nature and leisure activities. Directly on the lake road, you can drive from Zurich to Pfäffikon SZ and enjoy the fantastic view of Lake Zurich and the mountains. In addition, the parallel A3 freeway offers optimal transport connections to regional as well as supra-regional destinations. Several suburban train lines connect all communities of the district with each other every minute - as well as with the economic metropolis of Zurich.

In a direct lakeside location is Kilchberg - the place of origin of the world-famous Lindt chocolate. To this day, Lindt & Sprüngli AG has its headquarters here and is the largest industrial enterprise and employer in the community. The Zurich suburb also shows its chocolate side with its citizen-oriented, infrastructural and family-friendly community services. Likewise, the sports, recreation and leisure facilities in a rural idyll leave nothing to be desired. The Kilchberg village markets and culturally influenced buildings such as the community's landmark - the Kilchberg Reformed Church - are known beyond the region. As an innovative location, Kilchberg comes up with particularly sustainable urban planning and energy balance.
Next to Kilchberg lies the political municipality of Adliswil in the beautiful Sihl Valley between Albis and Zimmerberg - just a few minutes away from the economic center of Zurich, which borders to the north. Adliswil is home to globally active insurance companies, which contribute to the excellent infrastructure. Thus, a large part of the more than 18,000 inhabitants work in the service sector. As a place to live, Adliswil offers plenty of peace and quiet and local recreation. A wide range of cultural and leisure activities as well as a lively city center round off the pleasant life here. In addition, the city has numerous sports clubs and sports facilities for tennis and golf, for example. Companies, founders and investors will find well-developed business parks on attractive terms.
Six kilometers from Zurich city lies the charming and quietly situated community of Rüschlikon. The town's founding dates back to the 12th century: thanks to targeted maintenance of historic buildings and facilities, the town's history remains alive for residents and visitors alike. Around 400 companies are based in Rüschlikon - including international multinationals - which are constantly on the lookout for qualified specialists. More than 60 associations offer an attractive range of cultural, social and sporting activities to suit every taste.
Thalwil, on the left bank of Lake Zurich, has excellent transport links by train, boat, car or bus. Numerous shopping facilities in the center, green spaces, various markets, regular cultural events and over 100 registered associations provide a pleasant living environment and an intact village community. The quality of life is enhanced by the extensive forest and meadow areas and the versatile recreational facilities at the lake - inviting you to active recreation on foot, by bike and with all kinds of water sports equipment. In terms of education, leisure and sports, the lovable community is very well positioned.
Surrounded by many natural forests and meadows between Lake Zurich and the Albis chain lies the pleasant town of Horgen. Located in the midst of greenery, those in need of recreation and sports enthusiasts will find every opportunity for physical exercise and relaxation on land and in the water. Green is also the exemplary municipal energy supply and sustainable energy policy - Horgen has been the bearer of the representative "Energy City Label" since 2008. Travel in the surrounding area and beyond is guaranteed by three local S-Bahn stations, the regular service and a ferry.
In Wädenswil, you can enjoy the breathtaking view of Lake Zurich - for example, from the romantic Au peninsula. The quiet town of 21,500 inhabitants developed from an industrial location in the 19th century to a sought-after city of education, research and innovation. The town is home to a competence center of the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) with more than 1,000 students and numerous jobs in research and development. Cinema, theater, numerous cultural associations such as the chamber orchestra, tennis courts, the indoor swimming pool, and the golf driving range offer a balanced range of leisure activities for every taste. Those who like to go out will find good shopping opportunities in the lively city center, as well as several clubs and bars.
The lakeside community known as "The Pearl on Lake Zurich" is a true feel-good place with a special quality of life and excellent infrastructure for living and working. Richterswil offer the longest public lake access in the district of Horgen with modern marina, special view from the Samstagerner sun terrace and a beautiful lakeside resort - thus the community has the reputation as one of the most popular recreational areas on the left shore of the lake. Here locals and visitors can enjoy sailing and water sports and enjoy the gastronomic offer. Four suburban train stations ensure optimal connections. The historic, protected village center and Richterswil's landmark - a 101-meter-high fountain - are definitely worth a visit.
