Summer rental in Germany?

I recently retired and I'm thinking about spending the summer in Germany next year. I'm open to the city. I've lived in Berlin, Heidelberg, and Bonn in the past and would consider any of these cities as well as Cologne, Munich and Mainz. Will be looking for a two to three month rental hopefully under $1,800 per month. I've done some searching on Google Maps for "Monthly Furnished Apartments" and there seems to be quite a bit in my price range. I'm wondering if I should look at student housing around Universities as they will probably be empty in the summer. Anyone have experience with short term rentals in the summer in Germany or student housing?

Don't forget the 90 in 180 day rule. Since there are no classes during the summer, many student housing operations are closed during the summer.

In Munich you can take a look at a company called Mr Lodge. They are not cheap but that's a healthy budget that will get you a fully furnished one bedroom in the most desirable parts of town.

You'd definitely find students willing to rent out their rooms for the summer, but something tells me if you're ready to spend that kind of money you're over the student experience at any rate try wg-gesucht or one of the numerous Facebook groups. If someone asks for money before showing you the apartment, it's a scam.

airbnb works as well.

I had a few friends come visit me but didn't want to bother with staying and went that route...
