Accommodation in Munich

Rent house or flat in Munich

Home > Expat Guides > Europe > Germany > Munich

A couple of years ago finding a reasonable accommodation easily in a nice location in Munich would have been a Herculian task. Luckily, however this doesn’t have to be that difficult any more. There are a number of real estate agents and websites to help you find an apartment that’s just right for you.

The typical renting process will be as follows:

  1. To subscribe to a website that posts apartments for rent / or to subscribe directly with a real estate agent
  2. To arrange for a visit (bezichtiging). Typically, a date and time are fixed and whoever is interested can pay the apartment and its owner/representative a visit. Expect to see at least another 10 people visiting the apartment at the same time as you.
  3. Express interest. If the owner/ representative shortlists you, he/she will send you a copy of the contract.
  4. Sign the contract and you can move in.

Also note that in Munich, there’s typically a three-month deposit that you’ll need to pay upfront. Another point worth bearing in mind is that there’s normally a three-month notice period before you can vacate your apartment.
