  1. 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 spices.   We particularly encourage newbies to join us and they are heartily welcome.

  2. Hi, I just moved to Munich this past June with my husband. He is born and raised in Munich. I am from Toronto, Canada. We are expecting a new baby in October and it will be our first!    I don’t have any family or friends here in Munich and it’s been a little difficult to adjust because of COVID. Now that everything has calmed down a bit with COVID I was looking to make new friends that are mothers for english speaking play dates with my newborn.   also it would be nice to get some advice from some mothers as this is a completely new journey for me!   any recommendations are welcomed    😊
  3. Hello, I am looking for apartments around Munich for me and my family, we are interested in a nice apartment near the sud bad. I would like to know how the area is? and if you recommend it for a family with a girl teen? I am mostly interested to know if there are drugs going around and how the environment is there.   Thank you, Gloria
  4. I have heard on more than one occasion that especially for young children, school in Bavaria usually ends in the early afternoon and it's parents' responsibility to take care of them for the rest of the day. This makes it difficult for working parents to have full time jobs. Is this true? Are parents working full time frowned upon? What options do those who want to work full time have? In your experience, is this usually a difficult issue to solve? And also, how does this (especially in Munich) compare to the situation in Berlin?
  5. I would like to ask what can I realistically expect when buying property in/around Munich. Consider the following scenario:   - Family of 4 looking for an apartment or (preferably) a house ~ 120m^2 or more - Living in a small village around Munich is fine as long as it's possible to commute to Munich by train. Commute possibly not on a daily basis depending on job. - Parents are foreigners and newcomers to Germany, both with PhDs in STEM fields   I used an online mortgage calculator and entered the following data: - Kaufpreis: 750.000 € - Eigenkapital: 150.000 € - Tilgungssatz: 2% - Wohnort: Augsburg   and the calculated monthly payment for mortgage is cca € 2000 - 2200 depending on further details such as the length of the period during which the interest rate remains fixed.   My question: - do the numbers seem to be even remotely correct (house prices around Munich as seen on ImmoScout24 for example, the actual monthly payment etc.) - would a German bank consider such a loan or would they be reluctant to lend this much money - what minimum net monthly income would be needed (for the entire family). My rough guess would be at least €5000. - I'd expect parents' salaries in the range €60000 - €90000 (gross/year/person)   I understand that there are many variables in the equation and giving a single answer is impossible. I'm just expecting a correction in case the numbers are completely off.   Also, let's assume that the question on whether it's at all reasonable to buy anything in the Munich area is for a separate discussion.   Thank you.
  6. Hi everyone, I have two job opportunities, one in Mannheim the other in Munich. For most people Munich would be the obvious choice, but it's complicated for me.   First of all, my situation: single no children, gay, early 30s, non-EU, on Blue Card, waiting for NE. Been working in Stuttgart area for a couple of years. Solid salary and benefits but no development, thus the need to change. I've been trying really hard to find something in Berlin or Hamburg, but either no offer or the salary is abysmal!   To many people's surprise, I actually do NOT like Munich that much. If not for the job, a move from Stuttgart to Munich would be completely meaningless for me. To further complicate the issue, the position in Mannheim is all round better than the one in Munich...   But in my circle of friends and colleagues (coming from around Germany and the world), Mannheim has a horrible reputation. A few Berliners and Münchners actually said: "If I can think of a city worse than Stuttgart, it's Mannheim." (I don't think S is that bad, but the snobs' advice can be useful when you choose where to live! Better safe than sorry!)   My last straw was the possibility of living in Heidelberg, which has raving reviews from everyone I know and I also liked, and commute to work. Then I checked but it takes half an hour by car and more than 50 minutes by public transport from the center of Heidelberg...   So my questions: Is Mannheim really that bad? Is it really just for old ppl or families? Is it really a super industrial city even worse than Stuttgart with nothing but jobs and all you can do there is work work work to death? How's the social life there for single ppl? Cultural facilities?   Oh, also, the people there should be nicer, right? I mean hey I survived Stuttgarter Schwaben, who else can't I deal with, right? Right?...
