Don’t only consider the downtown area for living. Suburbs are worthwhile to live at, with simple commuting in metro and good access to countryside and mountains.

Good place to live. Rentals are high and it’s nice and easy to find a flat.

Don’t get too caught up on the German ways, they seem though but underneath they have a fluffy and soft side ;). When in Munich prepare some cash, it’s definitely an expensive city and many shops and biergartens do not accept credit cards. Enjoy nature in the middle of the city at English Garten and have some wine and cheese at Victuals Market!

If moving to Munich, know the rental fee is considerably above the Bavarian average. However, the quality of life in the inner city is enhanced by a strong mix and concentration of culture, entertainment and shops. The munich environs are also worth a visit once or twice a week.

Munich is a great city. There is an eclectic collection of eating options from the traditional sausage and potato biergarten to the hidden burrito spot. Surrounding the city is a collection of lakes and mountains to stretch the legs and breathe the fresh air. brush up on your Germany. Tschüss!

Someone moving to the lovely city of Munich should first try their best to master the German language. Munich is very international, so it may be easy to find people who speak English well; however, the local people of Munich will really appreciate that you tried to learn their language. It is also easier to make lasting, meaningful relationships in Munich if you speak German well. Apart from the language, Munich has a lot to offer, such as historic buildings and excellent traditional Bavarian cuisine.

When moving to munich, you should consider two things. Firstly, you should get a bike, since the road traffic is horrendous especially at rush hour. And secondly, you have to make sure that you can afford to rent or buy an apartment due to that the prices are severe.
