Germany. Deutschland.

The land is famous for its scenic landscapes, Beer and Sausages ( Wurst).

Known for its long winters and beautiful Christmas markets.

Well, everyone knows that Germany doesn’t need any introduction to their cars. The name speaks for themselves.

You can discover so many new things that surprising.

Before you decide to make a booking with MyCheapRemovals we prepared some basic information about Germany’s public holidays, car insurance and taxes, and the most popular supermarkets.

Public Holidays

The amount of Public Holidays are so many compared to other countries.

This is also depending on the state you are living in – in Bavaria, they tend to have more.

  • New Year’s Day Jan 1, 2019
  • Good Friday, Apr 19, 2019
  • Easter Apr 21, 2019
  • Easter Monday, Apr 22, 2019
  • Labour Day May 1, 2019
  • Ascension Day May 30, 2019

  • German Unity Day Oct 3, 2019
  • Christmas Day Dec 25, 2019
  • 2nd Day of Christmas Dec 26, 2019

School Holidays

School holidays in Germany are set at the regional level by each federal state.

Each year for autumn, Christmas, Easter, and summer, plus schools in most states also have a winter break around February.

A few states have a break of about one to two weeks for Pentecost around May/June.

Car insurance and taxes in Germany

The calculation of motor vehicle tax is based on two main components: CO2 emissions (two euros per gram per kilometer) Engine size (two euros per 100cm3 for petrol engines and 9,50 euros per 100cm3 for diesel engines).

Before a person can register a car in Germany you must have proof of third party liability coverage for all damage or injury to another person, car or object.

While collision or comprehensive insurance isn’t required by law, most institutions financing the purchase of a vehicle do require it.

Cost of living Around 850 euros a month for living expenses. Compared to some other European countries, Germany is not very expensive. On average, students in Germany spend around 850 euros per month on living costs. The largest expense is rent.

Supermarkets in Germany

Here is a list of some of the local stores:

  • Aldi was the first discount chain in Germany
  • Edeka Group is the largest German supermarket corporation
  • Kaufland is a German “hypermarket” chain
  • Lidl
  • Netto Marken-Discount
  • Penny Markt
  • Rewe
  • Tegut-Markt

Lidl and Aldi are the cheapest but they mostly have “no-brand” products, which doesn’t mean that the quality is bad. Edeka, ReWe, Kaisers are discounters as well, but they are more expensive, even when you buy their own brands like “JA!” at Rewe.

There are two types of supermarkets in Germany. The regular one and also the discount supermarkets. You can find almost everything you need in a discount supermarket at a low cost. Popular discount supermarkets: LIDL, NETTO, ALDI, and PENNY.

Also, everything is closed on Sundays. Yes, so you better get your supplies on time. The busses barely run, the whole town becomes so silent. It’s tough when you found out you ran out of bread!

So, what do you think of German living and lifestyle? Do you think you can live here? If you want to know what the whole removal process looks like, please contact our customer service specialist.
