So far we like the following areas in this order:
- Prenzlauer Berg
We did some research into short-term apartments while we were here. I think this will be good for us as we can stay in an apartment fully furnished and with everything we need on a monthly basis. This means that we are not committing to a regular apartment which in Germany is typically unfurnished, no kitchen and minimum 3 months rent for a bond. A short-term apartment allows us to focus on getting jobs and then take our time to find a nice apartment in an area we like afterwards.
We are very excited about moving to Berlin! We also miss New Zealand terribly and want to go back.
Berlin is going to be our new city. It is such a cool place, loads of young people and a feeling that anything is possible. It is cheap and not too hectic. We spent 3 days here and hired bikes to explore the city. Our main aim was to get a feel for the different parts of the city and decide what areas we would like to live in.
