How much money will you need ?

Please remember that you will need some cash upon arrival. If you are receiving a scholarship, it will take up to 4 weeks for the first payment. Therefore, please bring enough money for the first month. (500€ is recommended)

Bank notes: Please do not bring any notes larger than 100 EUR. Bank notes of 200 EUR / 500 EUR are difficult to exchange in Germany. Also note that you may not pay for small purchases (such as bus ticket) with a 100 EUR bank note. Have some smaller notes with you.

We will help you organize a bank account here in Weingarten. 

The cost of living in Germany per month is approx. 860 EUR / month, rent and misc. costs included. (subject to change)
