Hello All,

I am going to spend a month in Germany.

Please can you advise the budget for normal daily lunch and dinner, say in a 2-3 star hotels.

What about bread or other kind of fast food in a coffee place?

Thanks.

Book in advance Oct 20, 2010

So you are staying the whole time on spot? I would look for a studio or small flat. There are places on the net where you can book flats.
Travel agencies get hotel rooms much cheaper, so look for a flight + hotel offer. Otherwise a hotel room will cost you at least about 80 Euro per night, including breakfast. When in Nuremberg a year ago we ate local food (pork and sauerkraut or knödel) and paid about 10 Euro per meal, without drinks. Asian food is rather cheaper.

Prices of hotels are easy checked via hotels.com or booking.com.

Regards
Heinrich

University? Oct 20, 2010

Will you be staying near a university?

I don't know about Nuremberg, but at my local university you could also go and eat there as a guest. The meal prices are usually pretty cheap, even for guests (below 5€ for a full lunch, as far as I know).

You could contact Nuremberg's university and find out if that would be an option for you.

Otherwise, Heinrich is right. You can get a full meal for 10€ (if you eat in smaller places or if you prefer fast food, you will even pay less).

Apartment Oct 21, 2010

Look for example at http://nuernberg.homecompany.de/de/objekt/7081
It would cost 220 Euro per week. A hotel room at least 600 Euro.
The advantage is you can cook your own meals. When staying at one place I find it dull to eat breakfast in hotels.
If you stay in Nuremberg until December you can't miss the great Christmas fair, the whole city is one big fair.

"Mitwohnzentrale" Oct 21, 2010

I don't know Nuremberg, but in most bigger cities in Germany there is something called "Mitwohnzentrale"; an agency where you book a room for some time in an apartment with others, a so called "Wohngemeinschaft" or "WG". It's a very common way of living for young people; there's always someone around to chat, you can cook and eat together. Usually it doesn't cost as much, it's certainly much cheaper than a hotel and also much less anonymous.

Look, I found it:

Have fun, and don't forget to pack some really warm clothes!icon_smile.gif

Kind regards
Carolin

Thanks All for your reply.

I will stay there and pay for the lunch and dinner on my own only. The hotel fee is covered by my sponsor.icon_smile.gif

What about the rate for internet wifi in a 02-03 star hotel and at an internet pub?

Appreciated.

Phong

Free wifi Oct 21, 2010

You should be able to find a hotel with free wifi internet access. Wifi is now offered in most hotels.

It is also available free of charge in many cafes and public spaces.

If you have a laptop computer with you, you should be able to avoid paying for internet access during your trip. You might want to mention to your sponsor that wifi access at the hotel is important to you.

I wish you all the best for your trip!
