  1. 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?...
  2. Hello everyone,   Is there anyone who applied for the Blue Card and received it recently? I had the appointment on September 17th (not a renewal, applied for the first time) and I received the letter which includes PIN code last week. Does anyone knows how long it takes to receive the IDs after the receipt of PIN codes? 
  3. Hi everyone I really need some help. A man came to my apartment building and told me that the building is now switching over to the pyur internet provider due to the old VDSL connections not working anymore ( for tenants on the 4th and 5th floors). He was a representative of the company and was talking to multiple other tenants at the time. His explanation was as follows. The apartment glass fiber was built by their company and everyone is switching over with no change to the tariff. The company was paid through Nebenkosten already and all they need to do is activate the connection at a certain date and give us out new boxes (which are also already paid for by Nebenkosten). I tried to explain I wasn't interested and he and the other tenants explained that if I didn't switch and something went wrong I cannot get help to fix it. I'm really confused and unsure whether to say no because I'm happy with my connection or yes because I run the risk of losing all my connection. Is this a scam?   Please help I know this was long but I really need urgent advice   Hope your all doing well  Joe

  8. Hi.  Unbelievable it has been 3 years already and my assignment is coming to an end.  I have a few pieces of furniture, appliances (eg. washer/dryer), and electronics (eg. printer/TV) to sell as I will have no use for them back in North America.  Is there a local Munich website that is easy to use? I could go ebay but its kinda a pain (US account selling things in Germany, etc.)   Thanks for any feedback!
