Tips on moving to Berlin
Relocating to any new city around the world can be challenging especially if you're unaware of things you need to do. As a major European capital, everything you could wish for can be found in Berlin, but our Berlin relocation tips will help you settle in easily.First off, it’s worth organizing a German bank account as soon as possible. There are many online ways to sign up to a bank, from visiting a branch to signing up online, all of which can be done without speaking a word of German. As well as sorting a German bank account, it is also advisable to get onto a German cell phone network, ensuring you have clear communications from the get-go. Familiarising yourself with Berlin’s public transport system is also a great thing to do as soon as possible. Berlin’s U-Bahn is one of the most efficient ways of getting across the city. Similar to any other major underground train system around the world, the U-Bahn can be one of the cheapest travel options. Last but not the least, try to learn a little German! Yes, being a multicultural European capital, many Berliners are quite adept at the English language, but learning German can go a long way to easing your move. Plus it’s polite to try and start conversations in German, even if you have to revert to English later down the line!
