Is it expensive to live in Germany?

It is neither the most expensive nor the cheapest. Munich, for example, ranks as the 67th most expensive city while Frankfurt ranks 74th and Berlin at 81st. What’s good is the cost of living in Berlin is seen to decrease because of a rent freeze measure until 2025. Household expenses average around 887 EUR (960 USD) a month with 36% of which is expected to go to housing and utilities. German workers contribute 14.6 to 15.6 of their salaries for public healthcare- half of which is paid by the employee and the other half by the company. If you are relocating with children, then you will be happy to note that public schools are free while private school tuition is around 21,253 EUR (23,000 USD). Not bad, as the State prevents private schools from raising their tuitions. Internet though comes in at 31 to 41 EUR (34 to 45 USD) per month, which is pretty steep.
