  2. Hi,   Our son is grown up, so we have some stuff to sell. I can deliver in person near Forstenried or Berg am Laim. I can deliver in person anywhere in Munich if the total value for the items justify it. Otherwise, pickup in Forstenried.   I would prefer to sell things in packages, specifically the stroller items, in light red (#1. #2, #3) and the cradle items, in light blue (#5, #6, #7, #8, #9). Cradle is already disassembled and packaged.   Please PM me if interested. I usually don't haggle, unless a convincing argument is made.   Pictures (for almost all items):  
  3. Hi, Does anyone know some places (restaurants/cafes/shops) where I can find english speaking staff/waitress? I am looking for a job and I know there are some places like this where you don't need strong German.   Thanks for help! Marcelina
  4. Dear All,   I now find myself in a silly situation where I have all my ski gear, plenty of holidays to take off work, some money and car to get to ski resorts although now, I don't have a licence until my German licence is processed. Also, I don't have anyone to ski with so while this last point isn't essential at all, the company would be nice. Here is my proposition: As long as you are not a serial killer, axe murder, etc, and are reasonably easy to get along with, you will get free transport to ski resorts in Tyrol from Munich using my car to get there providing you drive, of course. I am thinking of  not more than 1 to 2 hour driving time from Obermezing, Munich (where I live). This includes most of the areas in Tyrol which as you probably know, is some of the best skiing in Europe. I'm not necessarily looking for a ski partner or friend (although who knows) but someone to share a coffee or lunch with between slope runs would be a nice bonus.  We would of course need to get along at least for the duration of the trip which I can't see being an issue with most people.  I have done a gazillion road trips and only got into a few scuffles here and there. I don't care whether you are male or female or anything else for that matter apart from what is mentioned above.     Regarding ski level: The last time I skied, I was considered an intermediate (according to my friends) although it has been three years since so I guess i would now be more of a beginner. I really won't know until I hit some green slopes to try it out for a few hours and remember how everything works. My learning curve is pretty sharp so I don't care what level you are as at one point or another, I will either leave you behind or catch up to you. Of course, skiing together is only a bonus and I am primarily using this time to get back my skiing skills so I am also very happy to ski on my own.   Regarding the transport: It is a lovely little Seat Ibiza Mk4 hatchback with auto climate control, CD player, power steering, powered mirrors, etc. I love this little car to bits although it is just that, little, and if you're a very big person, you could have an issue driving it for two hours. Also, I can possibly take two people but it would be a squeeze as I have to fold one of the rear seats down to put my skis in (and yours if you have them). it's reliable and fully insured (with road side assistance) for anyone that drives it providing they have a valid drivers licence. This of course doesn't include me at the moment!    Regarding me: I'm mostly easy going (this depends though!, I have limits!), I'm a native English speaker and travelled most of my life so I've met 1000s of strangers along the way. I don't get along with everyone but most people warm up to me after a short chat.    If you are interested, send me a message and let's take it from there.

  6. Hi guys. I'm not sure whether this topic was already discussed recently, sorry if it was. I plan to visit beautiful Munich for the first time in my life and want to enjoy places which you can recommend. Especially I'm interested in 31 of December, what is the best and not so much crowded place to watch fireworks? I've heard that Englischer Garten is a nice place for that, what do you think?  An of course, what a day without a party Could you, please, suggest good clubs to spend NY? I found some information about Tollwood, but as I understood it is an open air place and can be cold, therefore I'm not sure whether it is a good place. Many many thanks, looking forward to your replies.

  11. Evenin' ladies and gents. New to this site, newish to Munich (2 months in to a 10-month sojourn), so this is the first of a series of posts regarding questions I have about the city. For the sake of testing the waters, I'm starting with an easy/petty one:   Where can I purchase the Munich city flag?   Now, I know that something called the internet exists, and that this is probably the easiest way to acquire the Munich city flag. But since I'm living in the Studentenstadt, mail deliveries to my apartment have a 50% chance (or more) of never arriving (for whatever reason...), and in any case I'd rather get the flag in person. Of course, if there really aren't any other options, to the internet I shall go.   I've found one other post about flag stores, from 2004 or something, but the main store suggested in that thread doesn't seem to exist anymore. In my own treks through Munich, which have been fairly extensive, I've seen plenty of stores and vendors selling Bavarian flags (which I already have) and German flags (which I already have). None with the Munich flag for sale, though. Which is a bummer, as I'm a great fan of the flag, whether in double-bar or checkered form.   Any suggestions as to where to look for said flag in/around the city?

  14. Hi Friends.  Need some advice on University courses taught solely in English. Specifically Post Graduate studies in PR/Communications, or even certificates.   I hold a BA and am looking to broaden my horizons.   I can of course do a course via correspondence with several universities back home, however, socially it would be more pleasant to attend a local University (and more cost effective). Have lurked around on some of the Uni's web sites and I haven't had much luck.  Would appreciate your insights.  Thanks a bunch Ioanna.

  16. Hello, I am the current Nanny for a family in Starnberg and am looking for a suitable replacement. I am moving with my boyfriend, so I am leaving a wonderful terms with my family. The family consist of four children, ages 15, 13, 8 and 6; 3 girls and 1 boy. The older two don't need much looking after, normally just rides to and from dance if the weather is bad. The younger two get picked up from school, driven to and from activities and playdates. Aside from this there are the doctors and dentist appointments, cooking an evening meal (hello Fresh 3 days a week), grocery shopping, laundry and overall maintaining the household. It sounds like a lot but I have a good schedule. You have access to a car and may borrow it pending authorization. The family home is located on Lake Starnberg, 25-35 min SBahn into Munich. The lake is a short 5 min walk down the hill.   If offered the job you can choose to stay in the apartment attached to the house for a very reasonable rent OR you can continue to live in Munich or where you live now. The family would like a native English speaker, single or married, at least 25 years old and responsible, valid drivers license.   An Ideal start date would be February 1, 2017 at the earliest.   If you are interested please let me know and we can talk more. Thank you

  20. I have a bunch of empty Pfand bottles through online orders, however none of the local places I've asked will accept the bottles because they don't sell these exotic beers that I got online. Can anyone tell me whether there are places in Munich that accept any and all types of Pfand bottles?
  21. Looking to see if anyone has moved into the Munich area (we currently live in Hessen) and had to have their kids complete an entrance examination for Math, German, English and French/Latin? We're native English speakers and our kids have had 1.5 years of German school, but are no where near being fluent.   We have 2 kids, ages 12 (6th grade) and 13 (7th grade) that will be transferring mid-year into the Bavarian school system. I received an email back from one of the gymnasium schools today that said they would have to complete entrance exams, and I'm assuming pass the exams, before they can be admitted to this gymnasium. I'm particularly concerned about my son, who will have to complete a 4th exam in French or Latin, which is required in the Bavarian schools, of which he has had zero exposure to.   So now that I've dumped my first-world problems out on the table, does anyone have some advice? Is tutoring prior to the exams really feasible?
  22. Hi all -   I am an American woman who just moved to Munich with my husband. Before I continue, I will just add that I already have a 3-year residency pass with a full work permit through my husband (German).   I recently received my B.A. in German, French and Linguistics from a well known university in the US. I am still young and I am currently working in early childhood education as an English teacher at a bilingual school but I am not enjoying my position and I am discovering that working with children/education is not my thing. I graduated in the top 10% of my university class, have experience teaching both as a university level tutor and early childhood. Due to the fact that I didn't really know what I wanted to do for a long time, I also have experience working as a bartender/waitress (but don't want to work as one anymore).   I am trying to get my foot in the door to an entry level, full time position. I have been applying to different corporations to work as an English language specialist or translator. I am considering going back to school but right now, I would really like some *real* work experience. I am good with computers, fluent in English, French and German, a fast learner and a hard-working employee.   Any advice on finding an entry level position in Munich? I don't want to be stuck in my current job forever.   Thanks!
  23. Hi there,   I'm trying to apply for a Freiberfulicher visa. Ive read this helpful post, but have questions   Tax Number: I already have a tax number; do I need a special one for free-lancing?   Fragebogen zur steurlichen Erfassung: Is this the application itself?  It sounds like I hand this to the Finanzamt, not the Ausländerbehörde. " I I highly recommend filling out this form at home and taking it to the Finanzamt in person."   Where is the application that I must submit to the Ausländerbehörde?   This post did not include anything about a business plan, but have read that one is supposed to have some sort of business plan and sheet predicting income and costs, etc. Do I need a business plan? Must it  be in German? How long must it be?       Thank you for your help!
