Life in Berlin
Berlin, as the capital of
Germany, is a popular place to live due to its wide cultural and scientific attractiveness.
Therefore, living space is in short supply and finding an affordable and suitable accommodation can be fairly difficult; in particular the market for small, furnished flats is very limited. For this reason, you should look for accommodation as soon as you can.
For general information about searching for accommodation in Germany, please have a closer look into the brochure of the Humboldt-Foundation at www.humboldt-foundation.de.
Please contact the NeuroCure
Welcome Service; we will feel delighted to help you in finding a suitable
accommodation. Please note that we can only offer advice and some limited
support in searching for accommodation. Unfortunately, we cannot give any
guarantees. We strongly recommend that you ask your host for assistance.
We do not view apartments, nor do we sign contracts or give financial aid. Contracts have to be signed by the guest in person.
