At €60k a year you'll get approval for a mortgage for €200k-€250k most places in Europe. Add in some savings on top of that and you're looking at the guts of €300k to work with, which will buy an apartment anywhere. Live in that while you're working in the city, then rent it out/sell it when you decide to leave.

European property is also mostly only expensive in the big, wealthier cities. There are lots of very cheap places on the continent. So the other option would be to buy an investment property somewhere outside of the city you're working in either.
