Re: best places to live in Bern

How deep are your pockets? And what are the "best" places for you? The quietest, the most expensive, the places nearest the city/railway station?

Personally I like Tiefenau, but many people choose the area with the embassies, or Muri.

Bern is beautiful everywhere
I lived in Muri, it is very rural and quiet but within 20min you are in the city. Before, I've lived in "Länggasse" and we still visit a friends couple in that street and they have two kids. They love the area because everything is in walking distance (Kitta, Kindergarden, Butcher, Grocery, Bars, etc.) Tiefenau has some nice houses directly at the river Aare an is besides the fact that you are living "under the bridge" a very nice area.

Re: best places to live in Bern

We live in Muri and love it as it is only a short tram ride to the city , close to the airport and has shops and walks along the river .There are lots of houses and Wohnungs of varying sizes.

My son is nearly 15 so our needs are rather different form yours, but there seem to be many families around here as I see the little ones walking home from school all the time.Not sure if you will do local school or International School , but Muri is a short trip from the International School in Gumligen.

It seems to have lots of international families which means that you can get by with less german than if you were in a more isolated area, though they are very happy and surprised when you can speak German and even some folks will speak French.

Pm me if you have any questions ..
