In 2020, Germany welcomed many more Indian students, breaking previous records.


Of course, it was difficult moving to Germany, just as it is moving to a new country. Whether for studying or settling down, the good news is that there are quite a number of Indians already living in Germany, making up about 0.2% of the population. This means there's a community of people who understand your culture and can help you settle in. They offer support and advice to newcomers when finding the right university program or adjusting to life in a new place.


Some schools and organizations mainly help Indian folks settle in and feel at home in Germany.


Are you an Indian seeking to move to Germany or from any part of the world? This article discusses van shipping basics and gives you resources that will help you settle in.

1. I'm a vegetarian/vegan; will these resources still be helpful for me?

While some resources might focus on general aspects of Indian life in Germany, a good portion will likely cater to finding Indian groceries and restaurants. Look for resources with specific recommendations for vegetarian/vegan stores or restaurants or those that discuss navigating a German supermarket for familiar ingredients. 


2. I'm moving to a smaller town in Germany, will these resources be relevant?

Not all resources may directly apply, especially those focused on finding Indian communities or specific stores. However, resources on navigating German bureaucracy, learning the language, or cultural norms will still be valuable. You can also use them as a springboard to find local Facebook groups or forums for Indians in your area.


3. I already speak fluent German; what can these resources offer me?

Even with German fluency, these resources can be helpful for finding hidden gems! Look for recommendations on Indian cultural events, niche stores selling Indian crafts or clothing, or even hidden Indian restaurants known more within the community.


4. Are there any resources focused on the professional lives of Indians in Germany?

The provided resources might not directly address professional life, but some might offer tips on networking within the Indian community in Germany. This can be a valuable starting point for finding mentors or job opportunities within your field. You can also search for resources focused explicitly on Indian professionals in Germany, such as LinkedIn groups or websites.
