basic rental guide
Practical information to understand real estate offers in Germany.
Flats are classified by the number of rooms: 1 room, 2 rooms, 2 and half rooms, 3 rooms...
Kitchen and bathroom do not count as a room. Thus, a 3-room flat has kitchen, bathroom, and 3 rooms.
« half » means that the flat has a hall or a large corridor.
In general, flats are not furnished. There are flats equipped with a (built-in) kitchen, in other flats yo can take over the kitchen from your previous tenant or you need to buy your own kitchen. Sometimes it is possible to rent a furnisehd or partially furnished flat, but for this kind of flats the rent is higher.
In Germany, buildings with many apartments often have a common laundry room (equipped with washing and drying machines). The use of the laundry is regulated in the house rules.
