From experience I know that 'the Swiss community' can be really hard to get in to. It took me 9 months to get my first Swiss friend and he was a work colleague! Luckily once you're in, you're in. For those of you that want to extend their circle of friends and play some sports as well, I can really recommend you check out Rugby Club Bern. There have been expats on the team for years and Protected content our 40th anniversary so there will be a party on September 1st on the Schwellenmätterli sports grounds (opposite of the restaurant down there). I posted the event and from experience can say: they're a real fun bunch of men and women open for expats.
Stop standing at the side line, come join us and play.
You can call Reto Gasser, our president for more information on Protected content visit expats.rugbybern.ch for more information.
