It is not always necessary to furnish an entire flat. For example, in many cities it is now common to rent out flats with fitted kitchens.
A good alternative to the usual furniture stores are notice boards in universities, for example in the "Stöberhaus" (second hand) or at flea markets in and around Erfurt.
Swap Shop (Puzzlekiste)
The Swap Shop is a sustainable exchange service shop for household items and other useful things. The offer is aimed for international students who come from abroad to study in Erfurt and need household items such as pots, dishes, towels, etc.. These can be borrowed (depending on availability) from the Swap Shop. At the end of the study stay, the items should ideally be returned.
Of course, all other students and employees of the university can also support the project by dropping off household items, cutlery, glasses, towels, etc. that they no longer need themselves to the Swap Shop. Please make an appointment!
Where? The Swap Shop is located in the basement of building LG 2, room 3b (-112)
