Cost of Living

Living in Germany is expensive. Move-in costs are very high as well. Service members might experience a higher cost of living when transitioning to an overseas location. It is strongly recommended that prior to PCSing, service and family members create a financial plan to cover anticipated costs of a move. Most newly arrived personnel find that $3000 will generally cover transitioning and recreational expenses to a new area (factoring the dollar to Euro conversion rates).

Telephone: International dialing from the U.S. is 011 followed by the German country code 49 and the area code (minus the first zero).
