Cost of Living

Germany is a considered a moderate to high cost of living area.

The cost of off-base housing and utilities is expensive. Housing deposits can vary from one to three- months’ worth of rent depending upon the landlord or housing company. The housing and utility allowances cover the housing and utility expenses. Work closely with 52 CES Housing Office and 52 FW/CPTS to determine the authorized housing allowances before entering a housing agreement.
