Make the most of your Bern Expat Life

The Federal City Of Switzerland, which derives its name from a bear hunt of medieval legend, offers an exciting intercultural experience for expats, starting with cultural highlights, like Zytglogge, the 13-th century medieval clock tower,, the folkloristic festivities on the occasion of Switzerland’s the Schweizer Nationalfeiertag, up to getting a taste of traditional rösti. The InterNations community helps you as an Bern expat to enjoy your expat stay in Switzerland to the fullest. Our members have already come across many of the questions you’ll have when starting your expatriate life in Bern and kindly offer you their assistance, from ʺHow does the Swiss health-care system work?ʺ up to ʺIs the expat life in Zurich easy to manage for international people with disabilities?ʺ.
