Recreation and Daily Life in the TRK
Starting fresh in a new country, city, and culture is always a big challenge. Every new beginning comes with plenty of unanswered questions, and it takes some time to get your daily routine in order and start feeling at home. To help you get situated after you arrive, this page provides much of the information you'll need to manage the main aspects of everyday life.
Where can I learn German? How does the German healthcare system work? How can I find a house or apartment, and what should I keep in mind before signing a rent contract? Where can my children attend school in English, and how can I find the right daycare center for my little ones? What recreational activities are available in the Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion? These are just a few of the questions we'll help you answer. Others pertain to culture-specific aspects of life, such as which stores sell kosher and halal products and how you can get in touch with cultural associations and religious communities.
