What is it like to move to Germany?

When I moved to Germany I didn't speak any German. I had no idea about how to open a bank account, register as domicile in Freiburg, fathom the school system or apply for child benefits. I well remember the feeling of isolation. I didn't know enough about how things worked, so even the smallest tasks felt stressful, e.g. getting a train ticket, going shopping, buying stamps, etc. It was one of the most stressful phases of my life.
