domestic beer and also import beer(belgian) in ALDI discount Supermarket goes as low as 0.25 Euro per half litre !!

about cost of living .... old contracts of rental space are ridiculus low ... (i pay 360€ for 105 sqm ) but the prices for new flats are rising steep and steady ... same place would cost me today about 1000~1100€ , considering the location nearby the city center and several local parks ....

untue , a domestic beer is as low as 0.26 in supermarkets, and as low as 1.50 in bars (that's in euros, so USD would be that x1.1 at current rate), in fact more food and alcohol prices are far to over priced here, i dont think there is a single supermarket where 12 eggs are more then 0.99! how ever apartment rates are way higher 2 room (1bedroom) apartment in the center heated is at least 500, you can get one for 350 far away (i live here)
