    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Biel is more or less in the "middle" of Switzerland, you get to all the places of interest in about 2h by train, Swiss Alps, Lucerne, Zürich, Geneva. Or you can hike or bike here directly behind the house - we are very close to the forest and the Jura Mountains. There is a lot to explore in Biel also, we have a lake "Bielersee" and as already told Biel is the birth town of Rolex and Omega, there is a big Museum about the Watch-History. You can also find a Chocolate-Museum nearby. You will also be able to practice German or French, since Biel is a Bilingual town. And you will be able to exchange with my boys Manuel 24 and Noah 25, as well as with our Student Inès 19.

    We are looking for someone who will take care of our dog and cat, walk the dog 1 - 2 a day for a 30 to 45 minutes and feed cats and dog. Look after the cats - meaning, they should spend the night in the house - otherwise they fight all night long with all the neighbor cats! We also have a big garden, but since it is winter, there is not really a lot to do. But we really need someone with dog-experience, this is the most important thing. It will not be enough to be a "animal lover".
