How do I meet people in Germany?

Answer this Question

When we asked people living in Germany about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded...

"Meeting people in Germany can be a bit challenging at first, especially if you are new to the country and not sure where to start. One great way of meeting people is to join a local club or organization. Interest-based clubs, such as art and music clubs, are a great way to connect with like-minded individuals and build a community. There are usually plenty of social events and gatherings at local bars and cafes and these can also provide good opportunities to meet people and make friends. Lastly, taking language classes is another great way to meet people and practice your German," commented one expat who made the move to Germany.
