In the last five years, rental prices have been rising by more than 40% in both cities Berlin and Potsdam. To give you a rough orientation:
We recommend that you deal with accommodations in a timely manner and that you also consider accommodation in the surroundings of Potsdam.
If you rent an apartment or a room, you must pay a rental deposit to your landlord. A deposit typically amounts to between two and three months' rent.
Caution! Do not transfer any money for a deposit etc. if you have not yet signed a contract or have not yet seen the apartment. This applies particularly to money transfers abroad. There are currently scammers on the market who want to make money from unaware apartment-seekers. If you have any doubts, please contact the Welcome Center Potsdam.
