when I was growing up, they actually made the donuts in the shops. My aunt would take us early on sunday mornings - around 5:30 or 6 - they would be frying and dusting and filling and selling - it was great, and the product was genuinely good.
I don't know when they switched to the factory made crap they serve now…
I'm thinking of organizing some kind of coffee meet-ups for expat girls who came here to be with their partners and are currently unemployed or not working much. There is already a coffee thing for 'mums and mums to be', but if you're not a mum to be and still want to meet people and love a girlie gossip…
Locked myself out while taking stuff to the keller... this guy got me back in:
(089) 77 77 78
He was there within 30 min, charged me 70 EUR and a plus: he is an american living here for over 30 yrs, so perfect Enlgish!
Really cool guy, even a member of the Locksmiths Assn. of America…
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.
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…
If you are new in Munich, or live in Munich and are new to this forum, feel free to post a message here to introduce yourself to the rest of the TT community.
Do not, however, ask your newbie questions here about life in Munich. Nobody will answer them.
If you have basic questions like
How do I find an apartment to rent?…
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…
Great evening everyone - though the weather was not quite in our favor, I think we made the best of it!
Our next meeting will be in two weeks on the weekend of April 5th - we'll decide on the activity on the Monday or Tuesday beforehand, depending on the weather forecast, so watch for a sign-up around that tim…
Just did this today and wanted to update the thread, even though nothing has really changed from the information reported already.
1. Don't go to the consulate and expect to be seen. You'll be given a nice information card and sent the hell back home. Book your appointment online. The link to make an appointment…
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.…
The Munich Readery is the largest English-language secondhand-book shop in Germany. It opened for business in February 2006. We hope that you all will come by to check out the wares. Prices for our more than 20,000 books in dozens of categories are generally 30%-70% off current German list prices.
Free WLAN - The Munich…
this Sunday afternoon, the 25th, I want to go sketching at the Glyptothek museum:
This has classical Greek and Roman statues, mostly bodies and heads.
The museum is just by Königsplatz u-bahn on the U2 and the entry fee on a Sunday is 1 euro.
I'll be at the ticket counter…

If your son is really desparate, why not try a department store in Munich? My son left everything to the last minute and then three weeks at Karstadt (in Hamburg), which he actually enjoyed as he ran the sports shoe department at times and his friends who were in high-faluting Placements weren't allowed to do anything.…
Brand new bathroom with super-dooper shower. Am well chuffed.
Thanks Huncrest for doing a great job and for a lot of fun to boot.
That said, I'm happy that I can now wake up with a heavy head and be safe in the knowledge that I'm not about to be greeted by a far-too-chirpy Mike as I stumble out of the bedroom.
1. Why do all the connections via Anhalterplatz tell you to walk there?
2 minute walk to Lüneburger Str (est)
2 minutes on the bus, leaving at 13, 33, 53, arriving 15, 35, 55
Bus 50 east leaves at 8, 18, 28 etc giving you a connection time of 3 minutes
Total time from home before you are on the Bus 50 east = 7 minutes
If you're looking for a good day trip from Munich, head for Königsee near Berchtesgaden. Absolutely beautiful place with plenty of hikes for the energetic, scenery and beer for the non-energetic and lots more. I've been down there a few times now and am never disappointed.

Try the little shop at the Main Train Station in the level between the main hall and the entrance to the U2. Take the stairs going underneath the florist shop and turn left at the bottom. If it's really only milk you can get half-liter cartons at the Rischart bakery shop or the other snack stalls in the departure hall.

Unemployment benefits in Munich, Germany
There are two types of unemployment benefits in Germany. Unemployment insurance (UI) benefits are paid only for a limited period. The potential length of UI receipt depends positively on the work-history in insured employment in the seven years prior to a benefit claim.…
I have 20 good quality OBI moving boxes (accept 40KG). Willing to sell the lot for 20€.
Also a pile of other "assorted" boxes from a move before this one (therefore used twice before). 10 of these in total going for 5€.
