About the video
In this video, I talk about the realities of why people (foreigners, expats, digital nomads) leave Germany! As I mentioned, you should not be ashamed of leaving a place if you don’t connect with it and you shouldn’t force it. Everything you go through is a learning experience that will help you grow. But, Germany is not meant for everyone. The weather is cold, taxes are high and it can be really difficult to connect with Germans and make meaningful friendships. Real talk you guys 🙂

If you would like to schedule a coaching call to talk about your personal situation and how you can find a job in Germany, please visit:
– talk to you soon!

  1. 1. High tax, true. Middle income people easily pay 40%+ of social contribution. Feels almost half of all month's efforts disappeared. It is a lot. You can not have meaningful savings based on this mandatory social contribution.
    2. Gloomy weather, true. Half of year is overcast or intermittent drizzles or storms. Sun is even like a preparation for next week's rain.
    3. Connections, this part is not very different from living in other places as expats. A lot of routine get-togethers and parties and shallow-related acquaintances sometimes is not that useful or beneficial at last.
    4. But it's permanent residency and nationality process seem more reasonable than some other countries.
    5.In general, German life is a tradeoff. Perks just offset downs, by not much of a huge margin.

  2. As a German I can tell you, that the taxes are not the main problem. You pay in the average between 15 and 20% taxes. But for social insurances you have often to pay the same fee.

  3. Hi Diana,
    a great Video again.
    Yes November is grey and rainy but in December you could see Christmas Lights everywhere and your mood getting better.
    I love British Columbia and it’s so beautiful but 50‘C this summer shocked me.
    Greetings Günther

  4. Even as a native, the climate in Germany has always been too cold for me. In fact, there is only a maximum of 4 months that you can enjoy the summer. Let's hope that climate change progresses quickly and winters become a little milder.

  5. 1. Please do not compare Berlin or other regional parts with all of Germany. The wind currents alone are often far too different for that. For example: Winters in the southwest, west and the coast line are anything but not hard. I come from the french border in the south with a winter from december to mid february. Temperatures are fairly mild. More than 2,000 hours of sunshine per year (although 80% between february and october).Than why do you people move to Berlin or Munich or other parts in the east which are known for colder and longer winters ? But even there I think its nothing compared to an average canadian winter 😀

    2. The winters in Italy, Spain and Portugal aren´t that great and warm either. A person that is used to tropical climate with 30 degress all year shouldnt move to any country in Europe. Therfore we have the internet to get information previously of moving somewhere. And by the way: I passed 3 years in a tropical country and found it completly unpleasant (then prefer 2-3 months in winter with a lot of rain than 6-7 months muggy heat and rain almost every day)

  6. taxes are relative … I've lived 16y in the USA/CA. I never understood how even sending your kid to a proper school, college, university, outrageous real estate taxes (I lived in coastal So-Cal and annual taxes above $10K were nothing unusual) is not considered "taxes". Even the crappy or non-existing infrastructure is taxing. Simply looking at your pay check is simply not the whole picture. I even factor health care into the whole picture. 50% of Americans that file for bankruptcy do so because of medical bills. Point is, we can cherry pick a single issue, obviously we have to deal with the whole package wherever we live.

  7. I can see why people leave for the reasons you present. Only the determined personality will stay. But there are tradeoffs in every country. One has to decide for oneself. After many times in the US (and Canada) I can understand that people are p/oed by the way people treat each other here. That is always a culture shock for me when I return. But then given other factors I would probably not live in those countries if I had to choose. Even if those factors do not actually affect me.

    Sorry (trying to be considerate to the Canadian soul) Diana, but your tax information is incorrect. After all these years I have to expect some more German precision in your statements. Perhaps you have added social security payments like health care and unemployment and retirement pays. You then have to declare the result as net income after taxes and other fees. You never pay 42% tax on an income over 57,000 Euro. I mentioned that already the first time you put out those numbers years ago. And you should have done your homework by now.
