Expat Life in Hamburg

One of the key factors to living in Hamburg is taking time to learn to speak and understand the German language before you move. Don’t panic if you don’t already speak German as you will find many local businesses speak English.

Thankfully, for those that may not be quite so proficient with German, you can find plenty to do where English is spoken fluently. There are several theatres and movie houses that show English speaking plays and movies, and you can find many local American expat groups to socialize with. Social media is a wonderful place to check for local expat groups in Hamburg.

The cost of living in Hamburg is not too high. It’s not difficult to find an apartment for under $700 USD, but the price depends on location, so be sure to speak to a local realtor to find a home.

Planning a Budget for a Hamburg Move

It is especially important to plan your move carefully and be very meticulous when figuring out the overall budget. Here are a few things that may factor into your move to Hamburg:

Downsize- Before you begin to toss things into a box, take a little time to sort through everything. Downsizing before a big move, especially when moving overseas, is important. The lighter the load, the less the cost.

Visa- Depending on your country of origin, you may need a visa. For U.S. travelers, you will need to apply for a residence permit. You can find up to date information on this by visiting the Federal Ministry of Health website.

Moving Services- If you are just flying over with luggage and no individual property, you won’t need to hire a professional moving company, but to move household property, professional services will be necessary.

Taxes/Customs Duties- Depending on circumstances, you may be able to import your household goods and even a vehicle without paying customs duties and border taxes. You can verify this through the German Missions in the United States.

Customer Reviews

I want to take a moment to say thank you to the extremely hard working crew that handled my move. I admit I was skeptical of hiring a company to move my household stuff but I was so pleased with the services. These guys packed everything up and had it loaded and delivered in no time at all. Everything was taken care of from start to finish and my wife and I were able to take some much needed time to check out the new town without having to worry about getting things unpacked. Three Movers took care of everything and we really appreciate it!
