Sorry to tell you that the info about the German pensions is a dream but not reality. The majority of Germans receive after 40 or 45 years of uninterrupted work a pension in the realm of 700 to 1500 a month. they then have to pay for health insurance and taxes. the average French pension is higher than in Germany. In Germany I was refused to enter the obligatory health insurance because I stayed abroad over 15 years and therefore would have had to pay about 700 Euro privat health insurance. It is not easy for many people who live just on their pensions.
