Moving to Biel/Bienne

Hi All,
We are moving from Canada to Biel next month. I am a single mom, have a 6 year old boy and a 9 year old princess. I would like to meet other parents for activities with kids and to spend time together and have fun. We'll be so happy to make new friends out there!

Re: Moving to Biel/Bienne

Don't live in Biel/Bienne myself but I think it's a nice place to live. Quite centrally located, and pretty much one of the 'borders' between the French and German areas. In fact, both languages are spoken over there.

You're not that far from most places in Switzerland (except East Switzerland, to a certain extent), and have excellent train connections to major cities.

I'm quite sure you'll meet people quite easily. I think Swatch is one of the big employers in that area. In terms of nature, you have the lake which will look amazing at this time of the year and the Jura mountains.

All the best for your move!

Re: Moving to Biel/Bienne

I don't live in Biel either but am not far away on the bottom end of the lake. It's a lovely place. We have a 12 year old boy so not the same age group as you but could meet for coffee sometime.

Welcome to Switzerland.
