It’s hard to find accommodation that’s both attractive and affordable in Stuttgart, but – with a bit of patience and luck – it’s not impossible.
The Swabian metropolis is one of the large cities in Germany that have high rental prices – with an average of € 7.27 per square meter.
It’s in fourth place for high rents behind Munich, Cologne and Düsseldorf – and has a tight housing market.
The many well-known companies in the Stuttgart area and a continuously growing population – as opposed to the nationwide downward trend – lead to increased demand for homes.

Landlords and cooperative building societies


You can also contact landlords or residential managers directly.

To find the ideal accommodation, it’s best to move into temporary accommodation via a housing agency and then carry on looking at leisure. Or you could take a small space with an in-built kitchen in a so-called apartment-hotel for a short while. There are a number of possibilities for searching for accommodation. Daily newspapers, agencies, realtors and Internet portals bring landlords and tenants together.
