Price calculator gives an average minimum expense of 5200 for a 4 persons family.
As per same calculator :
Apartment hire (3 bedrooms) Outside of Centre is 2,958.70 Fr. x 0.334 = 988.20 Fr.

What are the actual hires for a three bedroom apartment outside of Geneva ?

Used to live in CH 40 years ago.How much is a bricklayer earning per hr as average to support those costs? Mind you Feldschlossen beer cost similar then. Bread slightly dearer now. It depends what you live on.
