If you are going to be studying in Chemnitz, expect to pay 5€/m2 - in Munich 10.25€/m2. I think Hamburg is similarly expensive. That is quite a range. In addition, we do not know what funds you…

Question I usually ask is "What brought you here?" A rather more passive assumption, possibly. But, as others note, I now start with the German setting. Big differences between age groups, locations,…

It depends on how long are they going to drive. The problem with a booster is that they suck if the kid falls sleep. If someone will be seating besides the kid and the kid is at least 15kg and you…

@Techsmex, I understand completely your point above. I do truly. But I only offer one point. The five 'nons' were not politically motivated, and that is the separator or additional element that…

BTW, the distance between two of these... ... is exactly 50m on the Autobahn, but not necessarily on other roads. This rule doesn't (obviously) apply to rural roads as depicted by yourkeau.

One of the things that is easy to overlook about Berlin routes is that you can book right to your end S station and it does not cost any more in my experience. (Do not know about U). It costs no more…

Hi, is this still up to date? I can wash inside my property, with my own drain, but people on the street can of course see me doing it. If I use a bio-shampoo, then does it make it perfectly…

Hey, sorry to bring this thread back from the dead, but I did my research and you can indeed park on the street (as I've been doing for 3 months). It's technically illegal, but tolerated with very…

If it is critical (you have to repair it for the owner) or you want to invest, you get one of the local Polsterer (sp!) to replace them. Munich also has a shop where they would probably do it for…

Absolutely. States do not do 80 million personalised solutions. They usually do cookie-cutter "one size fits all" rules to meet their policy aims and balance their budgets. The populace has to fit…

No, sorry. But since you are here for 8 weeks only, none of them will provide you with a full scale therapy (that takes much more time). At most they can advise you 'first-aid'-like to deal with your…
