I move to munich in april, the salary offer is: EUR 1200 after tax
The question is: Is this salary enough to survive comfortably in Munich.
Please let me know your thoughts.
Luckily, Munich is one of the cheapest cities in Germany when it comes to Cost of Living.
Most single expats would spend around EUR 400 on accommodation each month and that is likely to be your biggest expense.
The cost of public transport in Munich is reasonable. A monthly pass will cost you around EUR 45. Also, there are many people who choose to cycle to work each day in Munich, as it is a very cyclist-friendly city.
As you will be earining less that EUR 4,000 per month you will be entitled to subsidised healthcare. Your employer will pay a portion of the cost and you will only be required to contribute 10 percent of your income.
How much you save each month will also depend on your personal preferences and your lifestyle . I.e. whether you eat out often or save by cooking dinners at home and whether you go out to clubs and bars, etc.
Take a look at the Cost of Living in Munich page for more details on everyday expenses for those living in the city.
