Leipzig has become increasingly popular as a place to live in recent years. The number of inhabitants stabilized again after a sharp decline in the population in the 1990s and has been growing steadily since then. From just 437,000 inhabitants in 1998, the population has grown again to around 600,000 today.
This strong increase in population is also noticeable on the housing market in Leipzig. Rents have been skyrocketing for a few years and living in the city center in particular has become almost unaffordable – especially as a student or as a professional at the beginning of your career. And this despite the fact that numerous institutes and workplaces are located within the city ring road and many prefer a nearby location.
For tenants, this means overpriced living in houses in need of renovation and more and more flat share castings being turned down or more living in outlying areas.
Instead, you can save all the stress and YOUNIQ offers you an excellent and affordable place to live in the center of Leipzig.
