Although there are relatively many rental apartments in Germany, there is a shortage of housing, especially in metropolitan areas and large cities. While demand for housing is growing in the cities and rents are correspondingly high, it is often still possible to live comparatively less expensively in the surrounding countryside and in rural areas. As a result, one has to reckon with regionally varying rental possibilities and rental prices. Basically, a lot of patience and perseverance is required when looking for an apartment. Therefore, be sure to start early with the preparations and the actual search.
Getting started can be made easier by renting a room in a Hereon guesthouse for the first three months in Germany, if available. This will give you the opportunity to look for external housing on site.
The Welcome Office is happy to assist you if you have difficulties to find an accomodation. The demand for guest house accommodation is very high. Therefore, please remember to make a reservation request well in advance.
