Bern has a lot going for it! Here are a few of the reasons why so many people move to Bern from the UK.
- Bern is a beautiful city with plenty of green spaces
Bern combines classical architecture with stunning modern buildings, making the city feel authentic and character-filled. The Aare river winds its way through the Bern, offering incredible water views and giving citizens the opportunity to enjoy water sports. The city has been designed to incorporate many green spaces and bike trails are plentiful. There are more than 130 parks and 95 playgrounds with the city limits alone! The city also has “Begegnungszonen” zones, where people can meet with one another and socialise. These spaces are used to host everything from street parties to food markets.

The 2014 Quality of Life Index rated Bern as one of the ten best places to live in the world! The food is incredible, there are plenty of activities to enjoy, the public transport system is high-quality, the crime rate is low and housing is affordable. Wages are high and tax rates are low compared to most other OECD countries. The work/life balance is better in Bern than most other European countries — including the UK. There is a strong emphasis on sports, healthy living, and enjoying life.

The Swiss take care of their natural environment and have very strict pollution laws. The air is fresh, and the city is surrounded by stunning, pristine wilderness.

Healthcare is “almost” free in Switzerland and the quality of care is incredible. This is reflected by the life expectancy of people living in Switzerland — they have the 2nd-highest life expectancies in the world!
- The education system is high-quality and schools are affordable
Bern has some of the best public and private schools in Switzerland. The education system is well-funded and attracts extremely talented teachers. The curriculum shares some similarities with the UK system, with a strong focus on mathematics, science, languages, and the arts.
In Switzerland, students usually attend 1 to 3 years of kindergarten, 4 to 6 years of primarschule (primary school), 3 to 5 years of sekundarschule (secondary school), and 3 to 4 years of sekundarschule II (upper secondary school). This can be followed by tertiary studies.
