Traveling by Bicycle is the best mode of transport within the city limits. So investing money to buy a second-hand bicycle is highly recommended.
Study materials tend to be expensive though students get extra discounts from some bookstores. So you can save a lot of money by borrowing the books form library or looking for second-hand books.
The Eurolines or other bus services do have good connections to many cities across Europe. The German Bahn (train) though expensive is a fast reliable way to travel.
Germany experiences all four seasons in a year. So appropriate clothing is required. Winter clothing is less expensive to buy in Germany than in Asian countries where winter is not so severe.

Every country has its own rich tradition of culture. It is very important for you as a student to learn and adjust to this new culture and its people. Germany has more than 1000 years of rich cultural heritage and they spend immense money and time to preserve it. It’s best that you spend much time at places where locals hang around, be it a party, restaurants, favorite food, sports, travel, arts, technology you will always find many like-minded people.
Germans do not engage in small talks, they consider it unproductive. Courtesy and punctuality are highly valued by Germans. Address elderly people always with the respect form ‘’Sie’’ and always use Mr (Herr) or Miss/Mrs (Frau) and their second name while addressing them until otherwise they offer that you could call them with their first name. If they have a title (Dr. or Prof.) do include it. E.g. Say you are greeting your professor in the corridor. His name is Max Mueller. Then you should address him as Hallo Prof. Mueller. The ‘’SIR’’ or ‘’MADAM or MAM’’ form of addressing is not in use in Germany. People of your same age or position (hierarchy) you could address them with ‘’du’’ form.
Also Germans expect that a direct eye contact is maintained always and it’s considered very impolite when not keeping direct eye contact during conversations.
