G'day people in Bienne/Biel

Hello everyone,

I am new to this site and am moving to Bienne in July with my French hubby and two young kids (our second international move during COVID)!

I have searched this forum for advice on nice suburbs to live in and around Bienne/Biel, however they are all old and freeways have since been built ect !

Can anyone throw out some really nice areas to live in? Of course being Aussies we would like a garden and space (I know I know), but we are flexible for apartment living too if they cartier and schools are good!

Thanks allot.

Re: G'day people in Bienne/Biel

North of Biel is the French speaking Bernese Jura. Houses are cheaper but one needs a car to mostly get around. Orvin is nice. To the south west of Biel along the lake is mostly farm country, German speaking and the infrastructure is a bit better with train service. Also, there are a few nice villages just above the city that are reachable by a cog train: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biel%E...ngen_Funicular. Also depends on whether the kids want to speak French or German in school.
