Moving to Winterthur, the Nature Paradise


The city of Winterthur has the sixth biggest population in Switzerland. Around 105’000 people currently live here and there are reasons for that. Some of Switzerland’s traditional and big companies like AXA Winterthur have been here for a long time, creating jobs and attracting people. Every day around 25’000 people come to Winterthur for work and an estimated 7’000 students come here from all over Switzerland to visit the University of applied sciences. Whenever there are so many people living, working and studying there is also a high moving rate. That’s why a lot of our moving companies actually come from Winterthur. They know every part of the city and with so many moves they’ve helped us become a very competent and professional partner in all situations. So, don’t hesitate and profit from our local competence when moving to or in Winterthur. Our Move Captains will accompany you throughout the whole move and you can benefit from our easy online service.



When we ask our local moving companies what they’d say makes Winterthur such a special place, they all say the same thing: nature! The city is situated between forest covered hills in all directions. The “Zürcher Weinland” is situated north of Zurich and is perfect for long walks or the unique lama trekking tours. A little closer to the city you’ll find the “Affenschlucht” of the river Töss where kids can throw rocks or admire the speed and force of the river flowing past. With all these possibilities to experience the beauty of nature it’s absolutely worth hiring a professional moving company to have more time for these things. If nature is not your thing, don’t worry. Winterthur is also famous for its cultural diversity with a lot of museums. And on top there are a lot of young people because of the University of applied sciences which makes it a vibrant place. It’s a city full of quality and that’s also the case with our partner moving companies. We check all of them for their quality level so you won’t have to worry about finding a good company that takes good care of your furniture. Move with MOVU and be on the safe side.



Winterthur seems to be situated ideally for several reasons more than just it’s surrounding nature. The airport is only a 15 minutes’ ride by car or train away. Zurich’s centre can be reached within 25 minutes. Travelling from Winterthur is therefore very convenient and fast, which are also two of our core values at MOVU. If you’re moving to this wonderful city with its balance of nature and proximity to metropolitan areas, we’d love to help you find the best moving companies for your move.

Moving to Winterthur – City of Tolerance and Diversity


Because of the big companies and the University, Winterthur is a place that is very diverse in its people and offering. Every fourth person that lives in Winterthur is originally from abroad and had to drive a long way for their move. Germans are the biggest group, making up 18% of people moving to Winterthur, closely followed by Italians with 17%. They also brought their culinary specialties with them. Two of those places are the ristorante Sottovoce and the Pizzeria La Pergola where you can enjoy delicious Italian cuisine. With the cultural diversity, Winterthur also has an interesting religious diversity. 60% of the population are Roman Catholics or evangelic while 13% are Muslims and another 20% say they don’t belong to any confession. The epitome of religion in Winterthur is definitely the evangelic city church, which is surrounded by an idyllic square. The church was built in 1244 and was later expanded three times.


The diversity also shows in the cities politics. The city council is made up from 8 different parties from the left to the right wing. It’s a very balanced council with 15 seats for the SP and 14 seats for the SVP, the two strongest parties. In third place the GLP and Grüne follow with 8 seats each, followed by the AL with 7 seats. Social justice and living together are at the heart of Winterthur’s politics and it’s nearly impossible not to love the city for it. We from MOVU love to accompany moves in Winterthur, since we are a big fan of the city’s values. So, if you’re looking for the right moving company, look no further. MOVU has the easy and cost-effective solution for you.
