The new department of international investment Savills in Russia opened a new direction of commercial real estate in Germany.

Leading real estate market experts offer commercial properties with a budget of € 1.500.000 (micro-apartment packages, supermarkets and medical centers with tenants, etc.) in Western Europe with a primary focus on Germany.

Commercial real estate in Germany is attractive to investors with long-term lease contracts for 10-15 years without the right to terminate with reliable network tenants and a yield of 4-6% in euros, with the potential for asset value growth.

Savills presents a selection of the most investment attractive supermarkets in Germany.
