  1. Hi All, I live with my wife in Frankfurt, and I just received a job offer from a company in Munich. I will be traveling to Munich on Monday - Wednesday to the corporate headquarters. The company is unwilling to pay for travel costs (train, hotel, etc.) to the Munich office, but offered me a good salary, bonus, and benefits package to make up for it.   My question is: Would it be better to rent a second apartment in Munich, or simply stay in a hotel 2 nights a week? Regarding the "Doppelte-Haushaltsführung", is one option more “tax-deductible” than the other?   I have been searching the forums and Google for a few hours, but have yet to see a clear answer on this topic. Thank you!

  3. Hi there, I'm from Ireland (so EU citizen), and I'm thinking about moving to Munich or this general area of Germany - having been there travelling twice, and enjoyed the city a lot. I am open to other places in Germany like Berlin, but I just felt Munich is perhaps more my thing. Relaxed atmosphere, history, bavarian mountains, nice buildings etc. I work here in Ireland as a landscape gardener (self-employed) and I would be hoping to work in this field over there (I've got good advice here before on that). I'm obviously willing to work for a company and that's just the easiest route when I'm in a new country and not establshed. I'm just wondering about general things to know before I decide to go, e.g. salary expectations vs cost of living - it appears you get much more value for money over there as Dublin has become expensive and many people find it's not relative to the salary, e.g. very expensive rental and housing costs, food is expensive, car insurance etc etc. I'm not looking to live like a millionaire by any means, just to have a decent apartment / place to live, good transport, and money for doing nice stuff in my off-time, enjoying the city, nightlife, and countryside. (Obviously, that's in addition to the essentials need to get started there.)   Has anyone been in a similar situation? So as I'm not totally in the dark! For example, what's a realistic time to spend until I secure a job / apartment if I make the move? I understand I would be in a hostel or temporary accommodation for the first few months at least. What exactly do I need , in terms of paper work, in order to get started with things once I arrive? As I said I'm an EU citizen. I know in my line of work, face-to-face interaction is the norm, so I'm not expecting to secure a job or anything before I arrive, or have the company sort out all my needs, so I would be doing much of it myself...   Thanks Daniel

  6. Hello everyone, I realise there is a few similar posts out there asking about employment in Munich, however, many of them are years old and do not really apply to my particular situation so I am hoping to get some helpful feedback.  My German language skills is less than mediocre ,and that's probably an overstatement, but while I am working on improving my communication skills i would still like to pursue some form of employment. I am still a student and therefore I don't have much work experience nor do I have any over the top educational qualifications, while I do have a few certificates.  I know this is a bit of a Longshot, but any advice that anyone could provide to me on finding a job here would be greatly appreciated. P.s. if you are looking for a partner to practice speaking German with, either via text, Skype, face to face, etc. Feel free to add me on Whatsapp or telegram. My number is below.  +4917621622129 -kimmy

  11. Aupair needed from June

    We are looking for our next Aupair. Start date: June 2018 for approx. 1 year     We are Oliver (10), Sophie (8), Peter, Stephanie and Smartie the dog. We are, or we would like to say a a pretty easy going family who enjoy doing many outdoor and sporting activities. Oliver is now at „Realschule“ and Sophie attends the local primary school. Our kids have grown up bilingual as Peter is from England. However most of our day to day life is in German.   We live in the beautiful city of Munich in Bavaria, Germany, to be exact in a town house in the southwest of Munich. We have the underground and recreational Parks on our doorstep plus Munich city centre is just a 25 min underground journey away. We both work full time so our current au pair (Viktoriia) is at home for Sophie and Oliver in the morning (breakfast etc) and when Sophie comes home from school at lunch time. She makes lunch and supervises her homework, makes sure she gets to all of her various afterschool activites, such as athletics, capoeira etc.makes up fun games, helps keep there rooms tidy (this bit is very important to us, as our two are notoriously bad at managing more than a couple of hours without making a mess) plus taking care of there clothes washing. Taking Sophie out on afternoon trips to the swimming pool, cinemas or visiting one of our many museem‘s. Olli attends an all day school so is only really around in the mornings ( not a great morning person, but then who is?)   What are we looking for?Well, we would like someone who is not only just there for the kids, but who can also join in with us, be it on an evening or on a day trip to.... become another member of 'the family'. One of our most important requirements is that you must have had some experience with kids and be aware just how difficult it can be. Being creative and able to take the time and build a relationship with the children is THE most important part of the job. Being independent and creative is a must when working with kids, ours are no different and respond really well to people who give them time and make life fun.Someone who can sit down with them and just make up things, be inventive and fill their time with fun, also as we have a DOG (an Appenzeller) being dog friendly is a must, also some dog walking is required. We both run or bike with her, so someone who enjoys going jogging and keeping fit would be perfect.While having fun is very important for us, their performance in school is also, you will need to supervise Sophie’s homework, encouraging her to do it neatly and help them study for tests etc. This next year is very important as it decides which future school she can attend, someone who takes this on board would be a great help We are not looking for an employee but for a new friend for the children and us. Someone who helps in the family not because we tell him/her to, but because he/she wants to, and anyway we think that it is the normal thing to do whem you are part of a family.We would expect you to: - get the children ready for school in the mornings - provide lunch for Sophie - supervision of homework- playtime activities with the kids- dog walking in the mornings and maybe also in the afternoon too.- light housework, putting on the washing machine regularly (you would be responsible for ensuring all the kids thinks are washed, no ironing required

  13. Looking for a kitten

    Hello all,   I have been in Munich for 1.5 years now and am searching for a kitten.  We've done a lot of preparation and have been searching for a little one for the last couple months.  I work from home so have the time and attention to give.   As much as I would love to adopt an adult cat from the Tierheim, my partner is less experienced with cats and would like to get a kitten (up to 12/13 weeks old).  We are looking to get just your typical mixed-breed kitten (e.g. from a farm) rather than from a breeder.  We will spay/neuter at 6 months so certainly no plans for more!   If anyone has any tips or knows anyone with kittens that would be great!   Warm regards, T

  16.   Servus! I am currently study at TUM. and I have always felt that my teeth is fine, but as it is a new year and having seen German students always with tidy teeth, I've decided to go for an orthodontics. So I am looking for one to wear a braces. of course, I need an English speaking doctor for more smooth process.  and as I am already an adult, I figured that my TK won't cover any of this expense. and the price range is from 5000 to 10000 in Munich, which is too expensive for my budget, if I am correct with the price. So I was looking for alternatives, and I found some people visit Czech Republic for the treatment. and It seems that the braces would cost around 2-3000 euro, and I think I can manage to handle this price. has anyone had any experience with orthodontist in Czech Republic?, and probably the one in Pilzen would suit the most as it would be more economical to visit with Bayern-bohemia ticket.
