How to Find a Babysitter or Nanny in Berlin29 March 2023 | After Your Baby is Born | By Lisa H
Finding the right babysitter or nanny in Berlin can be tricky – it took us a few weeks to find the right match when we were looking last year but we did ultimately find two lovely nannies that now support us on a regular basis.
What is the difference between the two? I'm glad you ask because I was wondering the same at some point and so reached out to our partner Giulia from Extra Arms Nanny Agency to find out about the difference between a babysitter and a nanny.
Expect to pay between €10 and €30 an hour depending on the sitter’s level of experience and their tax setup.
Here’s how to find a babysitter or nanny in Berlin:
Extra Arms Nanny Agency comes highly recommend and can especially help with nanny contracts. Read our interview with founder Giulia.

Post a search ad on Betreut.de (we found that you have to sift through a lot of not so suitable applications but eventually we did find a great candidate there!)

Do you know what the difference is between a nanny and a babysitter? I didn't! But Giulia from Extra Arms tells us all there is to know.
