Prices of 16 to 25 cent for half a liter of local beer in a supermarket are either fantasy or year 1918.

Half a liter of local (German) beer in a supermarket cost from €0.60 (discount) to €1.10 (Paulaner Hebe Weissbier from München)

How large is an "Apartment (1 bedroom)"? 30 square meter (sqm)? 50?
same for Apartment (3 bedrooms) 80 sqm? 90? 200?

Mine is 104 sqm, close to Stadtmitte in an attractive neighbourhood and it cost € 920/month (called Kaltmiete), € 1050 with h/c water, electricity, television and internet (called Warmmiete).

You pay by the sqm, not number of rooms.

Anonymous asks "€1500 per month is this enough to live in leipzig for 2 adults and 1 child" ?

Nope.

I live in Leipzig.

€1500 per month is enough to survive in leipzig for 2 adults and 1 child, a frugal life.

Two non-smoking adults w/o children spend some € 1300 to 1400 a month.

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)
