Arrival and Orientation

City Registration

Anyone moving into an apartment/ dorm room is required by law to register with the city (Bürgeramt) within 14 days upon arrival. This legal formality is called "Wohnsitz anmelden".

To do so, you need to book an appointment with the Bürgeramt (city hall). You book the appointment online (usually with Bürgeramt Reutlingen, Marktplatz 22):

Required documents:

  • Passport
  • ID card (EU Citizens only)
  • Completed city registration form (in German: "Anmeldung der Wohnung bei der Meldebehörde")
  • "Wohnungsgeberbestätigung" (landlord's confirmation)

You can find the relevant documents on the Bürgeramt Reutlingen's homepage.
