New in Biel/Bienne

Hello
Just moved here with my family (husband, son and Jack Russell terrier) from the US. We are here short term while my husband is working. Only until April or so. I have lived in other countries and never searched out english forums. I wish I had because the information on this site is great. I look forward to posting and gaining valuable information.

Re: New in Biel/Bienne

Hey, welcome to Switzerland!
Biel is a decent town, but has a bit of a bad rep. But the people are quite friendly there, I find. That is compared to Zurich and lausanne IMO.

Have fun, and enjoy your stay!

If you live in Biel, you can't be trusted!!
I've heard they have a lot of drugs and theft though!

Re: New in Biel/Bienne

Can't help you with the Americans-in-Biel thing, but why not come on down to Bern next week and meet some peeps at the Bern Livers & Lovers drinks night? - always great to see new faces!
