Yep, I aint sure if Roberto Beach is still running considering that the indoor volleyball "terrarium" with palm trees caught bad fire recently.
I prefer Ismaning, quite, not a city feel but still got that village flair and also has a newly built indoor swimming pool. Besides not far from the airport gives a plus whenever one has to travel. Isamaning has its own annual festival with live music and cosy atmosphere besides having patches of green trees giving you that you are in some wilderness/forest. A small stream runs through Ismaning and gives its own charm (well atleast for me whenver i visit Ismaning) besides that Waldorfschule/Kintergarten being within its vicinity.
Edited 1: Isamaning also has a child dentist. The other end of Isamaning shares its border with the English garden at the far end and is actaully quite a nice bike ride. It has a small hidden lake (not Feringasee) which is not overly crowded during the summers and gives you that nice relaxing feel.
Edited 2: due to proximity of trade center and autobahn, aschheim has an unusual heavy traffic during the trade fairs; it gets worse when Bauma or some other big crap of an event is taking place. Buses are often late early mornings and arrive at the S-Bahn stop where you have to factor in additional 7-8 mins of waiting time. Often the wonderfully S2 is also running late which adds to the agony. Feldkirchen/Kirchheim-Heimstetten seems to be a good option if you intend to travel with S-Bahn to work in the city often!
Resurrecting the thread : I'm looking to transfer a good chunk to UK to facilitate an apartment sale. Which services have you used for such a transfer? I'll be great if someone could share their experiences using any or other services mentioned in the posts above.
