House hunting

Where can I find housing offers?

Even though the housing situation in Bayreuth is not as tight as elsewhere, it is advisable to look for a flat early on. You can find the right four walls at the housing societies, on the internet, on Wednesdays and Saturdays in the daily newspapers of the region and at real estate agencies.

Housing societies

The social idea is a priority for many housing societies in public, municipal and church ownership. Housing societies therefore often offer attractive, market-oriented flats – at affordable rents.

Real estate internet portals und agents

Assistance in finding a flat from an estate agent can be quite helpful. Estate agents are not allowed to charge more than three months' rent for their services. You only have to pay the commission if you commission the estate agent yourself for the search. If you contact an estate agent in response to a property advertisement, you do not have to pay a commission.

Temporary living

Feeling at home, even for a short stay? Temporary living in boarding houses are a cheap alternative to hostels and hotels. Fully furnished apartments sometimes offer hotel-like services, but are designed for longer use and therefore much cheaper in price. Practical for business trips or a bridge until your own apartment. Anyone interested in an interim rental can find offers in the real estate portals.

Rents & prices at a glance

The rental costs for flats and houses also vary in Bayreuth. There is no rent index for the city. However, in order to make the rental level in Bayreuth more transparent, the city of Bayreuth has compiled a rent overview. This rent overview is not to be regarded as a substitute for a rent index, but merely as a kind of guideline for rents.
The market overview of the HypoVereinsbank in Bayreuth also offers a good indication of rent levels and property prices.
