However, as you probably already know from previous moves, a change of residence is also inevitably associated with some obstacles. Especially in the stress of moving, it can quickly happen that you forget one or the other thing. The right preparation is worth its weight in gold here.
In this article, you will learn how to make your move to Kirchberg as pleasant as possible. This way, you can enjoy your new neighborhood to the fullest right from the start.
Moving to Kirchberg – the preparation
In order to live in another place at all, you first need to transport your furniture there. For this you have several options, which we will now explain in more detail.
One option is to move your belongings from your old apartment to your new one yourself. For this, you will definitely need a transporter. In addition, it is helpful if you have a few friends who can help you carry the boxes and furniture.
If you don’t want to do this work, you can use a moving company. Although they cost significantly more, but you can relax. The employees have already had a lot of experience with removals and know what to look out for.
But how do you find a suitable company that will take care of your move to Kirchberg? For this, it is best to get several quotes from different companies. If you are still unsure, you can also ask your acquaintances for their recommendations. In addition, we also offer you a range of information on this topic on our website.
Registering after your move to Kirchberg
Finally! You have moved into your new apartment. But remember that this is not the end of the story. Because now you have to deregister at your old place of residence and go to the registration office in Kirchberg. You have two weeks to do this from the time you move into your new apartment. The address of the office responsible for you in Kirchberg is:
Gähwilerstrasse 1, CH-9533 Kirchberg.
Now your move to Kirchberg is finished. What comes next?
You have now completed all the tasks associated with your move? Then it is high time that you now start to explore Kirchberg more closely. So just walk around the town and explore the interesting sights. We also recommend that you try the local specialties. The St. Gallen cuisine has so many delicacies to offer.
Where is Kirchberg located?
Kirchberg is located in the northwestern part of Toggenburg. In addition, this village borders on the Swiss canton of Thurgau, which has an excellent reputation among wine connoisseurs, especially as a wine region. Furthermore, the river Thur is located in the east of Kirchberg.
The village consists of several villages, the central part of which is also called Kirchberg. But also Gähwil, Bazenheid, Müselbach and many other villages belong to the municipal area. Accordingly, you can collect a lot of impressions in the idyllic Swiss landscape.
Interesting sights in Kirchberg
One of the most famous buildings that you can visit in Kirchberg is the Holy Cross Church. Alternatively, it is also known as Peter and Paul Church. In its present form it consists of two parts. The chapel was added to the actual church later.
It was mainly the so-called miracle of the Holy Cross that gave this church a high profile in the Roman Catholic community. Several visitors to the church testified that the cross moved back and forth several times during their stay in the church. To commemorate this incident, there is a separate holiday in September, Holy Cross Day.
Also of interest is the Alt-Toggenburg castle located on the Iddaberg. There are only a few remains of the castle itself today, but you should definitely consider a visit despite this.
Local dishes in Kirchberg
The canton of St. Gallen offers a lot of delicious regional dishes. We especially recommend the St. Gallen Bratwurst. There is even a larger version of this delicacy with about twice the weight, the Olma Bratwurst. However, the ingredients are identical, a mixture of veal and pork. Unlike other bratwursts, however, this specialty is eaten plain, without mustard or ketchup (ordering mustard with it is considered a sin).
The Klostertorte also comes from the canton of St. Gallen. Because of the dough lattice, it resembles the Linzertorte, but the Klostertorte is not quite as sweet.
Now you have finally completed your move to Kirchberg. Thanks to our tips, you will surely keep track of everything. You will be surprised how smoothly such a change of residence goes if you prepare yourself sufficiently and work with professionals like us.
