Moving to Bern

Bern offers its inhabitants an attractive and homely environment. The districts of the city of Bern are divided into six quarters. The inner city forms the central part of the city, district 1. The city centre, known as the "Old Town of Bern", has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Länggasse-Felsenau district (District 2) is characterised by higher education institutions that make the district a preferred place to live for students and university staff. This district consists of the following 6 quarters: Engeried, Felsenau, Neufeld, Länggasse, Stadtbach and Muesmatt. The districts Holligen, Mattenhof, Monbijou, Weissenstein, Weissenbühl and Sandrain are located in district 3 Mattenhof-Weissenbühl. From these quarters it is not far to reach Bern's local mountain Gurten. Bern's district 4 Kirchenfeld-Schosshalde is characterised by many embassies, which unfortunately also increases the rent. Nevertheless, many people also move to of Beundenfeld, Schlosshalde, Gryphenhübeli, Kirchenfeld, Brunnadern and Murifeld. Breitenrain-Lorraine, the fifth district of Bern, consists of quarters Breitfeld, Breitenrain, Lorraine, Spitalacker and Altenberg. Its central location contributed to rising popularity. The largest area is in the 6 Bümpliz-Oberbottigen district. It is divided in four quarters: Oberbottigen, Bethlehem, Bümpliz and Stöckacker. The remote location to the west of the city can be quickly reached by public transport. Cheap rents are tempting as compensation.

Find the right moving company in Bern

As in all major cities, Bern has a large selection of moving companies to choose from. It is not easy to find the right moving company in Bern. An important selection criteria is the price, but it also depends on careful handling of the moving goods and the package of services included in the quoted price. What about dismantling and assembling furniture or carefully handling valuable items such as a piano? Are final cleaning and additional installations included? Complex Swiss moving market makes it harder to compare prices and different service packages for moving companies.

What are the advantages of a moving company?

When your own vehicle causes trouble, most drivers go to a garage, because a self-repair attempt often ends with greater damage than before. Even when moving, it is advisable to rely on the professional moving company in Bern. When moving home, you have to do a lot of organising and should not additionally burden yourself with the physical strain of carrying heavy furniture, boxes and equipment.
