How do I find a place to live in Berlin?

"When looking for a place to live in Berlin, it is important to consider your budget, desired location, and the type of accommodation you are looking for. Start by researching different neighborhoods in Berlin to find one that fits your needs. Once you have narrowed down your search, you can look for apartments or other types of accommodation on websites such as ImmobilienScout24, WG-Gesucht, or Airbnb.
