A TRUE HOME. A PLACE TO ENJOY LIFE AND UNWIND


TRADITION MEETS MODERNITY: RICHTERSWIL, FOR BALANCED LIVING

Supreme quality of life thanks to a unique blend of urban flair and untouched nature – and Lake Zurich is always in view.

Home to around 13,200 people, the exceptionally situated community of Richterswil hugs the banks of Lake Zurich, preserving its inimitable village character despite the proximity to the urban lifestyle of Zurich. Half-timbered houses and a listed railway station at the heart of the picturesque town provide perfect scenery for sophisticated living.

“A place to settle down and get involved!” Richterswil’s motto is an invitation for residents to participate in a huge variety of offerings and activities. Over 100 clubs, a swimming pool in the lake, yachting, a sports marina and many more recreational highlights will make your daily life varied and enjoyable.

For example, the fairy-tale “Schönenwirt” islet in the bay between Richterswil and Bäch that measures just a few square metres and was bought for a few hundred francs at an auction in 1848. Another special kind of tourist destination is the castle ruins at “Alt Wädenswil”. The remains of this once proud castle, whose oldest preserved section was constructed in 1200, are now a popular gathering point to experience life in the heart of nature.
