Tax on second homes
Since 1st June 2012 the city of Koblenz has raised a tax on second homes. You legally bypass this tax on all second homes and other secondary residences within the city’s area by registering your primary residence in Koblenz. If you’re looking for somewhere to rent on the private housing market, please consider the district boundaries to see if you might be liable for tax on second homes.
The housing market in Koblenz
Please consider the housing exchange of the Koblenz Student Service Organisation and the notices upon the bulletin board. You can also find suitable flats or rooms there because many attractive offers neither make it onto the Internet nor into the daily newspaper. You can find the notice boards at the Student Service Organisation, in the lobby of the dining hall (Mensa), in the foyer of the library and at the larger auditoriums. A lot of flat-for-rent notices can usually be found there at the start of a semester. Do also put up your own want ads.
We advise students on looking for suitable accommodation.
- Rhein-Zeitung, in particular the Saturday edition, classified ads also online.
- Koblenzer Schängel, published on Wednesdays, only in print.
- Youth Hostel at Ehrenbreitstein fortress, www.diejugendherbergen.de/.
