The au pair guide to your arrival in Germany
You are well on the way to a big next step in your life: the au pair year in Germany.
This page is supposed to provide you with a lot of important information about what you need to pack, what you can do to better prepare for your time as an au pair, and what you will need to do once you have arrived with the host family.
Packing for Germany
It’s time to start packing. We have created an ultimative pack list for au pairs which you can print out and check off, so that you bring the stuff you need.
Please don’t pack food and sweets – you wouldn’t believe how much junk food you can buy in a typical German supermarket! There are also many speciality stores in Germany where you can buy herbs and spices which you can’t buy in a typical German supermarket.
