# Germany still has an acute housing shortage.

According to the current study, far too few new buildings / apartments are being created, especially in the 8 major cities in Germany. Thus, this results in a study, e.g. in Cologne since 2016 not even 46% of the needs are covered. In Stuttgart, only 56% of the housing requirement has so far been met, with only Munich with 67%, Berlin with 73% and Frankfurt / Main with 78% being able to cover the demand somewhat.

Even in the Unistads there is still an immense need for housing, unfortunately, the influx of students was hardly considered.

Strict regulations in the construction industry, shortage of labor at the building authority and the lack of qualified craftsmen ensure that the construction industry hardly comes behind to catch up and meet the required housing needs in the cities.
