Around 900,000 people die each year within the Federal Republic of Germany. In purely statistical terms, this means that a member of one's own family dies every 18 years.
According to the Federal Statistical Office, there are about 5,500 funeral homes in Germany (as of 2021) that perform funerals of various kinds and types. The annual turnover of the industry sometimes amounts to around 2.20 billion euros. The most common types of burial in Germany still include burial in the ground and cremation.
In the following paragraphs the average costs of a funeral in Germany are to be pointed out once and how these can be computed now completely simply.
Average costs of a burial
For the bereaved, deaths in one's own family often mean not only grief, pain and loss, but also an organizational and financial challenge.
The first step is usually to go to a mortician. Both organizational and financial aspects are clarified, such as the expected costs for the funeral.
In Germany, these amount to an average of 7,000 to 8,000 euros (excluding follow-up costs such as gravestone maintenance, cemetery fees, etc.). Anonymous cremation is often a much cheaper alternative.
