  1. FigN added a post in a topic: Looking for Apartment in München-Ost   

    I will start a new job on the 01.08 in Aschheim (East of Münich) and I am looking for a single room apartment in the East side of the city, or also a WG with nice, clean people. I have been living here in Germany for quite some time already so language is not a problem. My budget is around 700-750 with utilities included.
    Any help is greatly appreciatted

    The picture from Google Maps for Hamburger Allee 59 was taken in 2008, so it's outdated. However I cannot say whether Tacohaus is actually still there ....

  3. FigN added a post in a topic: Sufficient salary ranges in and around Frankfurt all the prospective new Frankfurters, what you do with your salary is up to each other, so what I think you should know is the following:
    Renting an apartment in Frankfurt City is expensive, the average cost was around 10 Euros per square meters a couple of years ago with tendency to get higher recently.
    I also have a family of 4 a lived in Nordend for 6 years and I was lucky to get an 88 sq.m apartment for 1100 Euros (with Neben kosten included).
    Right now the rents are higher and if you want to have a relative spacious apartment and parks nearby you have to get out of Frankfurt City (but I would not recommend Offenbach).
    I live now even further North (20KM) and I have a 120 sq. meter Apartment for the same amount of money.
    So a Salary of 60K after taxes should be quite OK I would say!

    Well. if you are willing to pay a monthly fee to Deutsche Bank to let them have YOUR money and charge you for other extra items, then it's Ok to go with them. On the other hand if you want to save the 5 Euros monthly fee you can try the former Citibank, now called Targobank who does not have such monthly fee and they also have their online banking in English. If you have a VISA card with them you can withdraw cash at any ATM in Germany with the VISA logo without any extra charge. So as you may suspect, I have an account with them since 2006 when I got tired of being charged by Deutsche Bank for nothing.

    Hi TTers,
    googling around I found out there is a good offer and choices for PM courses here in Frankfurt. However I would like to hear if possible any first hand accounts or experiences with any of the providers of these courses.
    Does anybody here has taken the CAPM or PMP courses and if yes, with which provider?

    Thanks in advance

    @Jeanie, well the OP said in Rhein-Main, therefore I mentioned the takeover of the Tengelmann stores in Frankfurt . But you are completely right in that Rewe did not take over the Tengelmann group.

    take a look at the following lawyer specialised in Internet cases. He handled both of my cases and he charges 250 Euros per case (so not per letter as others lawyers do) and will take care of it for the period of the suit.

    Everybody seem to have forgotten about TOOM (also part of the REWE group), it is almost the same as Rewe in variety and prices. Here were I live there is a huge one for UK standards. Quite nice, recently renovated and lots of parking.
    There were sometimes in Frankfurt where you could find also Tengelmann, but this chain was also acquired by the Rewe group. In terms of variety the ALDIs are not strong but the quality is quite OK and for the price you can not complain. Rewe also holds the Nahkauf chain so it is in reality a Huge monopoly at least here in Hessen, with competition only from Real and Edeka.

    well, this may sound like Captain Obvious but Reboot can be achieved via a reset button somewhere in the box or by simply disconnecting the bloody thing for a while and reconnecting it again to the power source. I guess that is the first thing Support will tell you. Any bets on that?

    I went through this with my wife and we were lucky to find a Verband that is called iaf Verband binationaler Familien und Partnerschaften (Bi-national families and partnerships) where they were able to help us. That was already 3 years ago and we are still benefiting from all those talks.More info at:

    Ludolfusstr. 2-4, D-60487 Frankfurt am Main

    Tel: 069 / 71 37 56-0

    Fax: 069 / 70 75 092


    Their counselors are fluent in English (Frau Sitorus) and they are certified psychologists and counselors. I cannot recommend them more.

    Hope that this helps those looking for counselors in Frankfurt.
