I will be moving to Berlin in August and I am looking for some advice about choosing a suitable area/community to live in.
I will be teaching at an international close to Kleinmachnow, and my school has suggested that many younger staff like myself (I am Protected content in the areas of Schöneberg. Kreuzberg, Zehlendorf and Steglitz.
Ideally, I would like to live in an area that has some "life" in it with lots to do to keep busy when I am not working. With that said, I also prefer to live in an area that is not too expensive, as I will need to be able to save some money to (sadly) put towards student loans.
Lastly, it it possible to find flats that are fully furnished, or are the majority unfurnished. My contract is currently only for one year and so it would prefer to not have to purchase furnishings.
Any advice that you are able to offer would be greatly appreciated.
