FLATSHARING AND APARTMENTS
Do you prefer to live on your own or share a flat? Then have a look at the following websites.
Be aware that ads in English are often targeted at foreigners who can afford to pay more than the usual local price.
If you are asked to send a deposit to secure your reservation before you see the apartment or sign a lease, try to collect as much information as you can about the owner (or person who rents it) and the property before sending money anywhere. If anything seems to you suspicious, better choose another flat to avoid getting scammed.
