Some things to keep in mind:
In Germany, most apartments for rent are unfurnished, and you may have to transport your furniture or buy it here. The kitchen furniture and appliances are mostly (but not always) included, so make sure to ask your landlord. In most cases, there is an upfront safety deposit you will need to pay that may amount to up to three months' rent. If the apartment has no damage at the end of your rental lease, you get this deposit back (minus an interest rate).
