Wald Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom garden apartment with private entrance in a quiet location above the village

An apartment for guests, pilgrims and seekers ...

If these words you speak, then it could be that you will feel comfortable in our apartment. It is located above the village forest in the Zurich Oberland, quiet and beautiful panoramic location: A new 2 bedroom garden apartment in our somewhat older house, which we have breathed fresh color and vitality. The "pilgrims apartment" with private access is on the lower part of the house and is - like the whole house - facing south.

It includes a living room with kitchenette, bathroom and a bedroom with double bed. The sofa in the living room can be transformed into a double bed, so that on a daily basis up to 3 people (or parents and their children) can stay in the property. For a week or more, we recommend a maximum of 2 people or parents with 1 child.

Kitchen with ceramic hob. No TV, but wireless connection (wireless). Parking in front of the house. From the windows you have a clear view to the mountains, and the front door leads directly into the garden, which is open for free use. About a stone staircase leads to a fireplace with a magnificent panoramic view over the village and to the Alps in the upper part of the garden. A wonderful place to which it also draws us again and again!

* Forest is a beautiful and big village on the edge of the foothills. It is not always, but very often above the fog, surrounded by hills and forests, and even has its own Alp - the Alp Scheidegg. Our house is located on the trail route to the Bachtel, very close to the Camino de Santiago, which is celebrated by many pilgrims. In summer the area is ideal for hiking, in winter can be reached in a quarter of an hour the ski Oberholz and Atzmännig.

Forest has a great industrial past. It was regarded as a center of textile industry and was called "Manchester of Switzerland". Home protected factory building and factory owners Villas testify to that time, so join together in our village nature and culture harmoniously,

* Lake Zurich can be reached by car in 20 minutes. There Rapperswil lies with lakeside castle, Old Town and countless shops. Also Zurich is within walking distance. The ride in the largest Swiss city takes 35 minutes by public transport 40 minutes. That's what makes the charm of this village: That both is within reach - the mountains as well as the City.

All this and more information as well as photos can be found on www. Pilgrims apartment. ch

Spectacular spot!

Wald is definitely off the beaten track, and that's what we were seeking for a respite from visiting European big cities. This downstairs apartment in a beautiful home in Wald is privately accessible, roomy and includes everything a traveler needs- nice kitchen, bathroom and two rooms for sleeping - one with large eating table and kitchen area. Clean and attractive with amazing views of the countryside and the sound of Swiss cowbells and glorious churchbells nearby. It is not far from the Wald train station but it's probably better for someone with a car than on foot as we were- depending on your willingness to trek. If you come for hiking or skiing it would be a very nice mid-point as the distance to Zurich is about 30-40 minutes by train - and then a 10 minute walk to location. There is an excellent spa/hotel nearby which we took full advantage of on a rainy day. The Swiss are known for their self contained tendencies but our host was gracious and welcoming and even came to get us when we arrived. For a glimpse of the real life experience of a modern yet ancient Swiss village Wald is a great choice!
