The numbers are bleak: the city of Bern is estimating a deficit of CHF 35.1 million for the current year. With one billion and 395 million Swiss francs, she will be in debt to her creditors at the end of the year. That’s what the financial plan says.

Bern would have to save. And yet, at the end of November 2022, the Bern city council decided to buy a plot of land in a residential zone in the Untermatt district in Bern-Bethlehem for CHF 3.7 million. A playground with a meeting zone is to be built on it later – for additional money. Reason: There is an undersupply of play and meeting areas in the district. The plot is around 2300 square meters. That means: The square meter costs the city around 1,580 francs. According to an external survey, this corresponds to an “average value for residential building land with rental apartments in a good location”.
