What is the cost of living in Innsbruck

A little bit more than France for food especially (but not for restaurants), but with a great grocer for buying organic and local. For the rest it's similar to France, except for the annual ski passes which are very advantages with the Freizeitticket Tirol and the Snowcard Tirol. Without these, the day passes are rather expensive.

The apartments are similar in price to France, and there are plenty of roommates, but the supply is less strong than the demand.

How was your experience learning the language? Did you have a language course organized by the University?

Language courses organized by the medical university twice a week, and I decided to speak German with the other Erasmus and not English. In short, everything that forces you to speak German forces the progress.

Carpooling
