  1. Hi. Sorry I do not regularly check on to town. I have a kid in 8th grade and has been attending the school since 1st grade. Extremely happy to go to school and normally counting the days to the end of the summer holidays (I consider this a very good sign). In terms of tuition the program is the same as the Bavarian school so no much of difference in the curricula. However the school is not "annerkant" so for tbr switch to state school, a test is required. I know few people that did it (mostly changed after 4th grade) and their kids made it to gymnasium no problem. For more parent reference, you can read comments/ask one of the Italian parents grroup.


  2. In case of interest, the bilingual Italian-German school located in Obersendling will host its "Tag der offenen Tür" this Saturday November 11, from 3pm to 6pm.

    the school has  elementary classes and Gymnasium (2018-19 up to the 7th grow in the next years up to Abitur)


    The school is opened to all nationalities and follows the Bavarian curriculum


    if interested,  you can find more info on their website



  3. Hi

    we live in Solln. It is a very quite area, and there are kindergardens, also bilingual as already stated. Plenty of supermarkets, but no real shopping centres...which is fine with us, but might be a problem for someone.

    Schools in the area are mainly German public, with exception for the Italian-German one.

    there are also some German private like Isarschule and St Anna.

    If you stay closer to Aidenbachstrasse, you can get to the city centre also via subway (U3).

    There are new houses/apartment recently constructed.

    We like there, is quite being not far from the city centre.

    Happy to help further. Just PM me


  4. HI I had considered PremiumSIM, and applied including Number carry over. As I needed to pay my current provider, I had to check with PremiumSIM and had the misfortune to deal with their service. I waited for 29 min on the phone till somebody picked up the phone, to then been treated rudly and being hanged up on my face!

    I was not yet their client and they have treated me like this, imagine if you are a customer already! normally they are friendly and helpful when come to customer acquisition.

    Their misbehaviour made me decide to stay with my current provider and search another alternative!

    FYI my current provider is also using O2 network and in the last months I had several issues and had to call them. As the network is O2 also with PremiumSIM there would be plenty of occasion to call them...and wait on the line for 29 min!

    Dear Italianmum and PandaMunich,


    Thank you for your reply! So you confirm that Leonardo da Vinci school is a staatlich anerkannt? So pupils can change whenever they like to a state school without exams? And is the same for the Gymnasium?


    Have a nice day,



    If this is true for the elementary, it is not true fr the gymnasium. But I would say that best is to call the school. they are always very open and helpful


  7. Hi Akilles,

    I can help if you want. My daughter attends the Leonardo da Vinci and will continue through the gymnasium there. We are extremely happy and so is she.

    Her class is quite small, but she feels at home. Tuition is according to the Bavarian curricula, as follows the same rule as for the Montessori or Waldrfschule with regards to continuing throught he gymnasium and Abitur exams.


    The kids learn both languages every day, doing both grammar, reading, maths etc. The primary language gets the priority in tuitition.


    If interested, I can share my email and tel no

  13. Pizza, I like very much the one at Oliveto. In Italy there are different type of pizzas depending on the region (in Rome and Milan is very thin, whilst in Naples - where the pizza was officially born- is thicker). Also ingredients are important.

    Try the Orginale be Oliveto (near Goetheplatz) is with buffallo mozzarella


    a small tip from an Italian biggrin.gif


    PS otherwise try out something different like a tigella (typical of modena area) at ladytigella near isartor...this to show that if you search authentic italian food you have a chance here, but would need to test


  14. Hi all,


    I have just discovered your group and would like to attend it especially if meeting on Sundays.

    Please keep me informed with a PM.Thanks

    Do not PM me as I know very little about this, I just heard and want to share


  17. Hi Kiter


    our daughter is still to young, but we decided to live in Solln as she will go to the MIS. There is a school bus arranged from the MIS leaving at the corner.

    We wanted to be well connected to the city centre but yet have a garden and be close to MIS.


    I personally know other families living in Gruenwald or by Goetheplatz. All their kids take the school bus and do not seem to be bothered with the travelling.


    So my advice is checked the area served by the bus and then make sure you are well connected to the public transport.


    Good luck




  18. If any of you is interested in a thermomix, I would be more than happy to show you how great this is and how life becomes easier, expecially if you are a full time working person, not a great cook but still like to have people over for dinner or feed your family in a nice and healthy way...with a bit of creativity.


    PM me if you are in Munich and wants a demonstration or partecipate to one evening cooking session!
