An advertisement for a rental apartment in Munich on Facebook caused a discussion. The reason is the very high price for the two-room apartment.
Munich ‒ Anyone looking for an apartment in the Bavarian capital of Munich* knows that it is not easy to find somewhere to live at a reasonable price. It is not without reason that the Isar metropolis has been one of the most expensive cities in Germany for years. On average, tenants had to shell out between 14.60 and 22.60 per square meter* in Munich in 2021, depending on the location.
Understandably, not everyone has gotten used to the prices and some Munich residents, such as Juliane Schneider, are also fighting back*. Another example has now appeared on social media that is causing discussion. The page “Wohnung frei in München” has published an advertisement for a two-room apartment with 85 square meters on Facebook*. The apartment is located in the east of the center – more precisely in the Au-Haidhausen district near the Deutsches Museum. The description is: “Luxurious design attic apartment – loft character”.
Experts warn: Rental prices in Munich will continue to explode in the coming years

Of course, you have to dig a little deeper into your wallet for a certain luxury, but is the price really justified? One of the commenters doesn’t think so. He writes: “But 39.41 euros per square meter is steep even for Munich. On average, you should pay about half that.”
