FAQs about Rental Accommodation in Berlin
Is it easy to own a car and drive around Berlin?

Is Berlin family-friendly over the long term?
-Absolutely. Despite their central locations, Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf and Mitte are both highly-valued by families. These can be great for helping you get settled in before finding your permanent residence. Prenzlauer Berg is probably the most family-friendly area of all, with a plethora of parks, schools, and activities for the kids.
Can I live in Berlin without speaking German?
-If you’re only in Berlin for a short stay, no one will expect you to pick up the language. In fact, over the long-term you’ll still get by without major problems. More than many cities, Berlin’s population has exceptional English proficiency and wherever you go - restaurants, supermarkets, theatres - the staff are more than likely fluent in English. This is especially true in central locations, while further from the city more German proficiency would be expected.
