Those of you who want to live in Germany, but don’t have very deep pockets, better avoid these 10 most expensive cities to live in Germany. Too bad they are also the ones that are the most attractive.
Germany is one of the greatest economy forces in the world and one of the most developed countries in Europe. For these reasons alone, it is easy to understand why people would want to move and live here. After the United States, it is the second most popular migration destination in the world. Why? Germany is a progressive country with a high standard of living, well organized and offers a lot of opportunities. Sometimes, those opportunities cost some money, and you have to think carefully before choosing the city in Germany to reside in.
Some parts and regions of Germany are more developed than others, and people earn more money there, with the benefits of rich cultural life and amazing commodity. It would be foolish to say that the whole Germany is extremely expensive to live in. Similarly like in France, where not all cities can be compared with the expenses people have in Paris, as you can see in our article on most expensive cities to live in France.
To figure out most expensive cities to live in Germany, we used a research made by Expatistan, which based their rankings on the price of food, housing, clothes, transportation, health, and entertainment. The prices are submitted by users and official reports, and for each city Cost of Living Index was calculated, Prague being the starting ground and assigned value of 100. If one city has an index of 123, it means that it is 23% more expensive than Prague. Also, we added lists from Immobilien Scout and Numbeo that based their rankings on similar criteria. Each city received points from 1 to 10 based on their ranking on the lists. After we summed the points our ranking was finalized, and we got the list of most expensive cities to live in Germany. Let’s check them out!
