Housing services

Accommodation in Germany, and in Europe, in general, is in some ways different from other parts of the world.

  • Living Space and Rent
Many families own the houses or the comfortable flats they live in. Small apartments are also spacious enough for a good quality of life.
  • Living in an Apartment
One's "own four walls" is a very important subject to Germans. That is why most homes are very neat and tidy. Even stairways and common rooms are treated carefully and with respect. The strict separation of waste also reflects a sense for cleanliness inside and outside of German homes.
