New fluoridozirconate with the nonstoichiometric composition Cs1+x(H2O)1–xMgZr2F11+x·2H2O (x ≈ 0.73) (I) is synthesized, its structure is determined, and the thermal behavior is analyzed. In the structure a part of F atoms is split over two positions which results in the formation of two types of coordination polyhedra around the Zr atom: Hoard dodecahedron ZrF8 and pentagonal bipyramid ZrF7. There are also two types of combining Zr polyhedra into chains: by sharing edges and by sharing edges and vertices. MgF4(H2O)2 octahedra link infinite zirconium chains into layers. Between the layers cesium cations are located together with H2O molecules statistically replacing a part of cesium cations. Dehydration of I occurs in the temperature range 140–400 °C and is complicated by the process of its partial pyrohydrolysis.
