Grüezi mittenand!

Hello,

Just dropping by the intro page with a quick summary!

Will be moving to CH at the end of the year ready to take up a job in Bern starting on the 3rd of January. Currently living in NL (for 10 years now) and currently frantically looking for a nice place to live within sensible ÖV distance from Bern Wankdorf.

With me will be my wife and two kids (3 and 1).

We have numerous Swiss friends advising us but I'm sure this community will provide further juicy insights

Welcome Fabian 23! I hope all goes well with your move, sounds like you've got a good support group around you so hopefully you will soon settle in. I'm fairly new to this forum, but from what I've read and experienced here, you will be made very welcome by everyone. Oh and sorry, I know it's childish, but I always giggle when I read Wankdorf!

Welcome to EF, Fabian. Good luck with the move, and don't hesitate to ask whatever you can't find already answered. Everyone will be more than happy to help.

Re: Grüezi mittenand!

Thanks!

The admin seems to be pretty straight forward since everything is so organised there.

Our problem right now is housing. We see some nice places but a) we can't be there to view anything within a weeks notice due to work and kids, and b) we only want something from about mid-November.

Went last weekend to view 4 properties, two cancelled the day before due to being rented, one we viewed (and really liked) in the morning was rented for immediate tenancy by the evening and the last one we saw was not suitable so all in all we spent €1000 or so on expenses for nüt!
