Re: New to Bern

If it is fellow english speakers you want to meet then might I suggest Come Dine With Us, keep an eye out for the social events calendar as there is a meal the first Tuesday every month. Generally the Pickwick Pub is home to a few english speakers also.
If it is fellow students you want to meet then try the bars around Langasse.

Re: New to Bern

Hi Katie89

Bern is probably the most social town in Switzerland (that's why I'm trying to find an apartment between there and Murten, my workplace).... it's impossible not to meet people, just go and start talking to them.....

Re: New to Bern

Hey there,

I'll be moving to Fribourg in 3 weeks!

So, if you're up for a drink or anyone up for a social, then PM me and we can arrange something!

Look forward to meeting lots of new people!

Re: New to Bern

I am moving to Bern on July 24th I can't wait to get there but I don't really speak much of the language so would be great to meet some English speakers and start making some friends maybe we could sort something out?

But you're only 30 min from BE, BS, and ZH! Still doable to pay each a visit once in a while.

That's brilliant from my point of view as I'll be heading back from Montreux towards Zurich anyway.

Will there be ticket scouts at the Gurten flogging tickets?

Re: New to Bern

I also don´t have a ticket but I´m thinking on buying in there.

Everyone says there´s always tickets in blackmarket not too much more expensive.

I guess I´ll give it a try!

I need to set off soon for Montreux so if anything's happening, can you update me by text on +44 780 306 3367 and I'll meet you on the way back.

Cheers
Neil
