You said "from Germany" and I have, in fact, lived in Germany. Just not as an adult.

My biggest tip worldwide, though? Look for urban areas if that's what you miss, though I daresay you've already got a decent-size urban area. I mean, Karlsruhe isn't the sticks. There's Pforzheim half an hour away, and the big one is Stuttgart forty minutes beyond that. How far are you willing/able to travel?

Have you tried reaching out to fellow expats? Do you speak enough German that a native would be a good relationship prospect? Really, I do suggest you get conversational in the language ASAP. Breaks down lots of barriers!

Good luck!
