Julio Rodríguez lives on the ground floor, back left, in front of the information poster about Nuremberg Rostbratwurst. “I’ve found a safe home here,” says the 26-year-old from Venezuela about his apartment from the provider “i Live”. The prospective internist came to Nuremberg in May 2021 to become a specialist. For his 24 square meter furnished micro-apartment with bathroom and kitchenette, he pays 545 euros including a flat-rate ancillary costs, he signed the rental agreement in his home country. Rodríguez lived there with his mother on 150 square meters. They had thought about whether the apartment in Germany was big enough. Today he says: “I don’t need more space.”
