Hey guys! Today we are going to be discussing some tips for traveling to Germany on a budget using Airbnb. Germany was one of the first countries that I visited in Europe and it left a pretty large impact on my life. I feel like it really opened my eyes to what the rest of the world is like and that traveling internationally isn’t scary and it is possible for everyone. ????️
I feel like a lot of people in the US are scared to travel outside of the country for health reasons or even possibly security reasons which in some cases are valid. Germany really showed me that traveling to other countries can completely change you as a person, for the better in my case.
When I travel, I like to stay for as long as possible haha. I mean who doesn’t? I like to put a lot of research into where I am traveling and how to get the most “bang for my buck” when traveling pretty much anywhere in the world. Staying at fancy hotels is nice and we do like to do that occasionally but I get the most gratification by choosing more local options where my nightly rate will go directly to a local that hosts a place to stay for visitors. I remember finding Airbnb back when I was in high school and completely broke. I scrolled through their website for hours one night and the next morning ran into the living room to show my parents what I had found. They thought it was cool but they were kind of skeptical because nightly rates were pretty low and the pictures looked amazing. Sounds like a scam, right? I could tell that the travel industry was changing and it was being sculpted for the consumers that didn’t have $10k to drop on one vacation. *Affiliate links are present in this post.

Still with me? Awesome, I promise that I will make my point soon! Fast forward to my college years and being SERIOUSLY broke. I met Charles and he convinced his Dad to fly me to Germany where he lived at the time. That trip like I mentioned earlier in this post completely opened my eyes. It made me realize that traveling, no matter the budget must be possible and I was going to make it a priority in my life to go see the world. Since then, I have done a lot of research into “savvy traveling” as I as well as a lot of people are working on a pretty tight budget. Here steps in the magical land of Airbnb and how you can rent entire HOUSES for under $100 a night. How amazing is that??
I have decided to start a series that details great Airbnb options for you in any desired country. I think I will start with the most common and go from there but I really wanted to show my readers that if you look hard enough, you can find some absolutely amazing places to stay off the beaten path that will create memories that will stay with you for a lifetime. Sound awesome? We are just getting started. I want you to tell me where you want to travel to next in the comments and I will go hunting for the best Airbnb’s in that specific region or area. I chose to start with entire countries, but if you have a specific city that you are interested in, let me know! The list that I have compiled for you today consists of Airbnbs that are scattered throughout the entire country of Germany.
They are all priced under $100 US dollars (this price could change based on the dates that you decide to travel so please keep that in mind). Many of the places I chose are able to sleep only a couple of people as I set the guest limit at two people but if you are looking for Airbnb’s for larger groups let me know and I can create a post on that as well. Finally, I have extremely high standards for anywhere that I am staying.
We had a bad experience with VRBO a couple of years ago in Hawaii which made me become even more rigorous with my selection. I would happily stay at all of these places that I have listed on this post. I think they are all clean, tidy and have stellar reviews from past guests. I also trust Airbnb as they actually send someone out to review the listings so their customers are getting the exact listing that is listed on their website. I don’t believe that VRBO does that, or we would never have gotten into the situation that we did while traveling in Hawaii. That is just my personal experience though! If you have had good experiences with VRBO, by all means, keep using them. This is just my experience with the two companies.
Now onto the listings. I have linked the pictures to the Airbnb listings so you guys can check them out for yourself if you are interested in booking any of these. I think they are all so adorable and at amazing prices. My personal favorite is the listing in Heidelberg because I absolutely love that area of Germany and cannot wait to go back.
P.S I have included my Airbnb referral code at the bottom of this post. I will receive a small commission if you choose to use my link but you are obviously not required to do so! I would be extremely appreciative if you did use my link as it helps me bring more content to my readers and helps me run this blog. Thank you!
