What kind of houses do they have in Germany?

Apartment buildings Almost any German city will have rows of Wohnsilos (residential towers), the towering and rather Spartan-looking apartment complexes that dominate the cityscape and were largely built in recent decades to give the higher quality housing that Germans seek today. In major cities, these can be a bit intimidating, but they are usually very safe and clean with good transportation options nearby.

The American term "condominium" is used to describe apartments within a building that share common areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. In Germany, these are called kollektivräume (literally "collective rooms"). A kollektivräum is only habitable by people who pay rent or other fees to use the room. The owner of the building keeps all other parts of the unit empty in order to charge more for it. This is different from an American condo which is owned individually and not shared with anyone else.

In Germany, most new homes are now built as "co-ops". This means that they are owned by their residents who pay a monthly fee to use the facilities - such as a swimming pool or sauna house- and this covers the cost of maintenance and other expenses. If they want to sell their place and move out, then they have to find another resident first before they can sell their spot to someone else.

How tall is a high-rise apartment building in Germany?

In Germany, a high-rise is defined as any structure with more than 12 stories. When looking for apartments, any structure that is taller than 75 feet is considered a high-rise. There are only a few high-rises in Germany. The two most important cities - Berlin and Munich - do not have many high-rises at all. Most of the German capital city of Berlin was destroyed during World War II and has been rebuilt over time through housing developments and office buildings.

High-rises are useful because they provide more living space per floor and less need for parking spaces. This can be beneficial for people who want to save money by not buying parking tickets or having to rent out rooms in their house just to store their car.

There are several different types of high-rises, including hotel towers, residential skyscrapers, and commercial buildings. Hotel towers are usually found in major cities where there is a large demand for luxury hotels. These buildings will typically have small rooms with nice amenities like full kitchens or self-cooking facilities, spacious bathrooms with spa baths, and work areas with Internet access. Residential skyscrapers are used to describe buildings with more than five floors that are only renting out apartments. These buildings are common in European cities like London, Paris, and Frankfurt.

What kind of housing do they have in Germany?

There are cellars in German apartment buildings. This is useful since it allows you to keep items that no longer fit in your flat downstairs. Even rental residences often include a secure storage place in the basement. Many Germans see their flats as private havens. They have drapes in their homes and fences around their gardens. This means there's less crime in Germany than in America where people feel more comfortable with open doors and windows.

Cellar apartments were popular during World War II when space was at a premium. Today, they're most common in large cities like Berlin or Munich where rent is high. In smaller towns and rural areas, people tend to live in single-family homes. These houses usually have small front yards but big backyards that go down to wooded areas or empty fields.

In general, Germans prefer living in urban centers near public transportation, universities, and hospitals. They also want to be close to parks and other forms of recreation. Of course, money is important too! The more expensive an area is, the fewer people will live there. That's why students move to Berlin at the beginning of their career while families with children look for larger houses in out-of-the-way places.

The country is changing though. More and more young people are moving to Berlin right after university graduation because of the many opportunities there. It isn't unusual to see groups of students on bikes or buses going from venue to venue in the city center.

What are houses called in Germany?

Rooms and housing cooperatives (WGs) Shared flats and homes (Wohngemeinschaften, or WGs) are quite prevalent in Germany, particularly in larger cities. It is not unusual for houses to have more than one room - these are usually divided by a door - but all the rooms would still be considered "rooms".

In Germany, houses are called "Gärten" (or "Gärten und Brunnen"). This word is also used for neighborhoods with many houses on small plots of land.

There are two different words that are used to describe rooms in houses in Germany: Die Zimmer nennen sich an der einen Seite des Hauses "innere Stellen", an der anderen Seite "Äußere Stellen". "Inner" and "outer" are very important words when it comes to describing rooms in houses in Germany. This means that if you want to know how many rooms are in a house, you should divide the number of people who will use the house by two. If there are two adults and two children living in the house, then there would be four total "useful" rooms.

The words for rooms in German vary depending on whether they are "inner" or "outer".

Do houses in Germany have basements?

But not all apartments have basements -- especially if they were built after 1999 when building codes changed and it became easier to build higher-rise apartments without providing subterranean space.

So yes, German apartment buildings do have basements. However, not all basements are equal. Some are more than just storage spaces; some are also used as family rooms, laundry rooms, or even full-scale kitchens. It depends on how you plan to use yours.

Here's how common basements are in different countries: United States - 90% of homes have basements Canada - 75% of homes have basements United Kingdom - 67% of homes have basements Australia - 65% of homes have basements New Zealand - 60% of homes have basements Italy - 50% of homes have basements France - 40% of homes have basements Germany - 30% of homes have basements Japan - 20% of homes have basements China - 10% of homes have basements

So basically, basements are very common in America and Australia, less so in Europe. Germany has the lowest percentage but still offers basement opportunities for half of all homes.

Why are there no tall buildings in Germany?

The explanation for this is actually quite simple: German law requires that historical (medieval and Renaissance) skylines be preserved since they are part of German cultural heritage. That is why towering buildings, such as skyliners, are not permitted. Frankfurt is the only city in Germany with skyscrapers!

However, this law does not forbid new buildings from being constructed. Only those that were built before 1979 have to follow this rule because they form part of Germany's historic landscape.

There are some exceptions to this rule. For example, if a site has been used for industrial purposes for more than 50 years then it can be developed without violating the law. But even in these cases, large parts of the land will be covered by factories or warehouses.

In addition, there is one other reason why there are no tall buildings in Germany: money. In order to build a skyscraper, you need to get financing. And yet another thing that you need in order to get financing is reputation. If people think that you are too risky a project to invest in, then nobody is going to give you money for it. This is why most big German companies do not have their headquarters in cities with a medieval skyline; they know that they would not be able to get financing for their projects.

Finally, there is one more reason why there are no tall buildings in Germany: politics.
