What do I need to know before moving to Karlsruhe?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Karlsruhe, they said...

"Karlsruhe is a city in the southwest of Germany, located in the state of Baden-W├╝rttemberg. It is known for its high quality of life, with a vibrant cultural scene and plenty of green spaces. Expats should be aware that the city is quite spread out, so having a car or bike is recommended for getting around. The city is also home to a large student population, so there are plenty of opportunities for socializing and networking. Expats should also be aware that the cost of living in Karlsruhe is higher than the national average, so budgeting is important. Finally, it is important to note that the city is quite international, with a large expat community, so it is easy to find support and advice," wrote a member who made the move to Karlsruhe, Germany.

"Take your time. Don't compare it to your current home in the US. If you compare, compare it to others in your similar situation (income, family status, lifestyle). If you would like to take public transportation, which is very popular, economical, and practical in Europe, be sure to live near a bus/train stop," explained one expat living in Karlsruhe, Germany.
