Discussion forum overview
Munich is a great place for cycling tours, either within the city itself with a Biergarten stop or outside of town in the Bavarian countryside.
One tour is normally planned each weekend by a dedicated team during a season which starts mid-March and ends with the first snows of December. This is social cycling, not a sport.…
Every Wednesday evening at an Indian restaurant in Munich. Location varies each week.
Curry night is not just about having good food but also about having great time and lots of fun. The cultural diversity of people who are regularly part of this event is as colorful as the curry itself with all its different flavors and…
The Saturday Night Shindig is Toytown Munich's over 30's meet up.
Every week we meet up in a bar or beer garden, depending on the weather, and sometimes we throw in the odd special event too.
Everyone is welcome, newbies and veterans, so don't be shy.
Details of next meet up will be posted below, usually…
Why are you assuming that the rent is lower here? The places with really cheap rent are also the places with very few jobs.
Browse the forum, you'll find many TTers who have difficulty finding a good job because they do not speak fluent German and/or do not have the qualifications that are expected here. You have…
Friday Beer Garden
We're at a different beer garden, beer cellar, or pub each Friday. See the list of past locations. Everyone is welcome to turn up. If you like beer and a good laugh, come along! You can invite anyone too. If you don't know anyone there, contact me to find out what or who to look out for.…

Your advert will be most effective if you include a short paragraph of text about you and what kind of work you are looking for. Remember to include contact details or instruct families to send you a personal message. Note that…
You should look at monthly averages and then compare this with the historical mean temperature. So far, it is just a few degrees warmer than usual (period 1-8 January). Remember 2006 in Munich? It was snowing for 3 days non-stop in March. I had neighbours digging out their car for half an hour and they still couldn't…
^^^ It's going to get REALLY annoying if every activity thread gets crapped up by blissed-out, glittering, earth-loving kind souls peddling their wares as if advertising isn't advertising if you use the world soul, or "nature whisperer" enough.
Perhaps consider starting your own thread for your advertisement.…
I think the OP is being honest-- and actually investigating how to re-imagine the city.
I will say this, Munich isn't my favorite place in the winter months. It is dark, the people more withdrawn, the great public, outdoor spaces that make this city special aren't operating in the same way. In the summer months,…
For those of you who missed Sin City at the Fantasy Filmfest, it is officially opening this week on Thurs 11th August at Cinema, Nymphenburgerstr, running till 31st August.
There is a preview show on Wed 10th August at 11.59 pm (!).
Synopsis from www.imdb.com :
"An adaptation of Frank Miller's stories based…
This Photography Club meets every two weeks on Tuesday evenings for a shoot around the city and then discussion about the shoot and socializing at a local bar/cafe. The start time for the bi-weekly meeting will vary so keep an eye on the header for location, time, and date information.
We welcome all skill levels. Some…
I've had involvement at both schools, and both are excellent.
As Eurovol said, BIS is slightly less expensive, but not significantly so. (See chart below.) And it is true that MIS has more "prestige", but that doesn't matter in any material way, unless those kinds of things are important to you.
OK, so apparently the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Frankfurt has this book which lists U.S. companies in Germany...
Actually i think they have 2 books...
One is called: U.S. Investments in Germany
...and the other is: American German Business Guide and Membership Directory
So anyway, I was wondering if one of u guys…
So you're seeking rental accommodation in Munich? Make sure you read this page through to the end, it contains lots of useful information. Remember to also read the second page, including the post about tips for first-time renters. Once you're done here, then also read the other page: Apartments in Munich
You could also try BoConcept - scandinavian (but not ikea), simple but looks good - not too expensive either.
Spent loads with them but love all of their stuff. Most of the furniture in my flat is from them so at least it all matches!
Only downside is that you have to wait 6 weeks for it to be shipped from Denmark.
a couple of years ago we had a Sushi Night, then I moved away, then I came back and therefore will try my luck at organizing something again.
The sushi night is always on the first Tuesday of the month. I'll post here with our choice of restaurant, you add your name to the list if you wish to join.
I moved here nearly 3 years ago with my daughter who was 10 at the time and spoke no German. It was extremely difficult to find suitable German tuition for her where we live though I imagine that you will have far more options in Munich.
Your kids are at just the right age to learn German very quickly. Better now before…
I have a serious bank problem and need some help from an English speaking " German bank paperwork understanding person."
My husband died and I now have my Certificate of Inheritance (which took ages) and the bank has produced
Paperwork with huge discrepancies and are most unhelpful and threatening.

I'm Adam, I'm half Englander, half Aussie, brought up in Manchester! I turned 25 in September, and have been drunk/hungover since! Moved to Munich in July, but have been back and forth to England to see fam/friends, as I came here straight off the back of a year travelling/working my way through…
Update: I've been in touch with the police again today, the man is in custody, has confessed (so I don't need to go and identify him) and is aparently mentally unstable. It might take the police a while however before they can return my jacket and T-shirt which they took as evidence on Saturday. They want to determine…
