20 minutes from Zurich / 6 minutes from Oerlikon train station

Mehr als Wohnen is a community that has integrated a sustainability culture into its residential agreements.  One unique fact is that it is a vehicle-free area.  This means there is no parking available on site. Public transportation, however, is made easy from Oerlikon train station. 

Public transportation directions:

  1. Walk to Bahnhof Oerlikon Ost train stop (Gleis 8 side)
  2. Take bus 781 to Reidbach – the third stop.
  3. Continue walking in the direction of the bus.
  4. Pass Bagel Boys and take a right onto Dialogweg
  5. Turn left onto Genossenschaftstrasse
  6. Conference Kägi is straight ahead, passing the reception desk on your left.

Zurich Oerlikon Car Parking


Parking Messe Zürich is a large, affordable garage only blocks away from Mehr als Wohnen:

Address: Andreasstrasse 65, 8050 Zürich-Oerlikon. 

Mehr als Wohnen has a limited user and environmentally friendly special car parking policy. They charge CHF20+ for parking on-site, hence the recommendation to park a 5-minute walk away at the large Messe parking facility.
