If you’re planning to move to Bern as an expat, you should know that the real estate market in Switzerland is truly competitive and it can be quite hard to find a suitable apartment before moving, because:
- Hosts prefer future tenants to visit the house in person and are rarely willing to rent for short periods;
- The official documents and cover letters are in German, French or Italian.
So, let’s discover why microliving in Bern can turn out to be the best solution!
Microliving: what is it?
In a nutshell, microliving is a modern and smart lifestyle that reflects the youth generations’ need for flexibility and technology. More specifically, it refers to those apartments that have an area of around 30 square meters and provide services that a common house rarely offers – along with an independent, flexible, and innovative living. Having said that, let’s now see the key advantages of microliving in Bern!
The main benefits of microliving in Bern
The first advantage is the possibility to easily book your apartment online, opting for a short- or long-term stay that can fit both students and workers’ needs. For instance, we at City Pop allow you to visit and book the apartments autonomously, choosing the most suitable 20-minute time slot on the City Pop App!
2. Feeling at home
In addition, microliving makes you feel immediately at home, thanks to its 4-star hotel standards and smart technologies. These apartments, in fact, come fully furnished and gifted with a comfortable design, on-demand services, and high-tech solutions, which allow you to just focus on your job and social life while the provider takes care of all the rest.
On top of that, such apartments are also extremely popular for their centrality. We’re talking about buildings that are placed in the city center and well connected to the public transport – ensuring freedom of movement and the opportunity to live in exciting areas of Bern where it’d be otherwise difficult to find an accommodation.
4. Time- and space-saving services
What’s more, these apartments are easy to maintain and allow you to optimize or downsize your belongings, reduce stress, and settle in quickly – also thanks to time- and space-saver services like:
- Smart cleaning and laundry;
- Flexible extra storage;
- Food delivery and private mini-market.
5. Becoming part of a community
Finally, even if Bern is a welcoming city, it can be better to have some neighbors to immediately share your new experiences with! That’s why the most innovative microliving providers can also offer:
- Smart common areas, such as co-workings, living rooms, cafés, libraries or gyms;
- Ad hoc events that make you become part of a dynamic and vibrant community of like-minded people.
