Typical price of renting a two-room apartment in Germany is 500 euros. However, this cost does not include additional fees that have to be paid every month. These include the cost of garbage collection, fire insurance, parking and more. Usually their total amount is up to 250 euros.
Do not forget that when concluding a contract one will need to pay a deposit. The amount of the deposit typically equals rent for 1 or 2 months.
