Budget to live in Bern ( Cost of Living enquiry )

Hello,

I am Italian and living in Italy at the moment.
I would like to know how much would be the budget
to live in Bern for one person in an apartment.
I consider the following group of expenses:

1 Home: rent an apartment with 1/2 bedding rooms, heating,
electricity, water and ADSL/phone.
2 Food: buy food for one person for lunch and dinner.
3 Moving: 10.000/per year by car
4 Personal-care: Hair stylist 12 times a year, gym for one person
for 12 months

Can you help me to have an idea of what would costs
these items in Bern?
I think #3 would be about 1000CHF.
Thanks a lot.

#1 1000CHF minimum I'd think.
#2 If your talking about going out for lunch look at from min 300-600 CHF/ Month
#3 ~~~~
#4 Haircuts around 20-30 francs, gym membership from 1000-2000 CHF/year I believe.


Those are some rough estimates.

For a car, figure 0.60/km, so CHF 6000/yr, so CHF 500/month.

Excuse me, do you mean 0.60 or 0.06 by km?
Do you include just fuel or all expenses?

0.60.

All expense (fuel, tires, insurance, etc.)

For a new car costing 25k you can double that , for a 5 year old car costing 13k it's about right.

Re: Budget to live in Bern ( Cost of Living enquiry )

But you forgot other costs...

Mandatory insurances for;
Home (fire)
Health (accident)
Vehicle (mentioned by st2lemans)

For the home it is a set rate by canton (I think)
For accident this varies depending on canton again.

As I do not live in the canton you are asking about, I can not help, sorry

Good luck!
