Environmental awareness in Germany is extremely high. In a country with limited natural resources and high population density, it is not surprising that there is broad consensus on recycling, conservation and renewable energy.
Whether you rent an apartment or a house, a rental contract must be signed. In most cases, this contract is a pre-printed version of the document recommended by the Tenants Society of Germany (Deutscher Mieterbund e.V.).
There are many ways to go about apartment hunting. Start by making a list of your “must-have” points, followed by “nice-to-have” points.
Before you begin your house hunt, take a hard look at your disposable income and set yourself a budget. The reality in Germany is that most people spend up to one-third of their gross salary on rent.
