Hi,

I'm a German software engineer living in Nuremberg.

The average rent for a small flat in Nuremberg is €11 per month per m² plus heating and electricity, but there are huge differences between the different neighbourhoods. As a rule of thumb, the west and south are cheaper, and so is Fürth. Check this:
wohnungsboerse DOT net SLASH mietspiegel-Nuernberg/2176

I'm afraid I don't know what my wife and I pay for food. Food is cheap compared to other Western European countries, everything else is not. Check this for some figures:
numbeo DOT com SLASH cost-of-living/city_result.jsp?country=Germany&city=Nuremberg

If you're a software engineer, €2800 per month is a very low salary by German standards. That may be different for expats.

I also think that that is a low salary. The lowest salary in the software/IT area that any of my friends get is 40000€/year, and that is fresh out of school (masters) without any experience.

Only you know your spending habits. You can use the links that Lorlamon gave you to estimate how much you will pay for food and rent depending on how often you go out
for lunch/dinner, if you will need a car or public transportation, and so on.
Use a "steuerrechner" to estimate how much money you will get after taxes+insurances (my guess would be around 2500/month).

Hi I got a job in a software development company in Nuremberg. Currently now I am staying in Barcelona, Spain. I have to apply for the German work visa from Madrid, Spain. The embassy told me that I need the employment contract signed by both parties which I already have, but the problem is that they mentioned about justifying my employment contract from German labor office. Has anyone done this thing before for applying German work visa? If so please kindly let me know how can I do this? Is it has to be done by my company or by me? Can anyone please tell me how can I do this justifying process it will be really a great help for me. Thanks in advance

Hi

1. rent is largest expense will be around 400 - 600 euros ( if you are two )
2. food i assume since u r from india , u will cook most of the time as i do
200 - 300 euros
3.travelling with public transport roughly 100 euros for monthly ticket
VGN - Homepage

see the link , you can calculate how much you will need depending where u live and where you work . this site is in english also.

so minimum you have to spend at least 700 - 1500 euros

Note : If you have indian license , convert it to german license once u come here. you have to do it within 6 months of your arrival. later if you want to get license it will be costly.



Regards
kmt
