Moving to Kassel? Kassel is located on the Fulda River in the Northern Hesse. It is often called the “Capital of the German Fairy Tale Route”. This is because of its magnificent parks, historic architecture and monuments. The centre of Kassell suffered much damage during WW2 and was rebuilt in a post-war fashion. This area of the city is now dominated by banks and insurance companies.

Accommodation if you are thinking of moving to Kassel

Buying a property in Kassel is generally a straightforward process and with the economy still in a state of recovery following the global credit crisis, property prices are lower. That said, most expats still choose to live in rented accommodation.

There are several ways to find a place to live in Kassel. The easiest is through an Immobilienhändler, (a real estate agent). The disadvantage to this method is the high cost: these firms are allowed by law to charge two months’ basic rent, as well as sales tax, for the place they find you. Their fee is completely separate from the deposit you’ll have to pay to the landlord, which will amount to another two to three months’ rent.

If you intend to live in the city, you an expect to pay a monthly rent of €400 (£353) for a one bedroomed apartment. Outside the city the cost drops to €251 (£221).
