Munich is a great place for cycling tours, either within the city itself with a Biergarten stop or outside of town in the Bavarian countryside.
One tour is normally planned each weekend by a dedicated team during a season which starts mid-March and ends with the first snows of December. This is social cycling, not a sport.…
I have 20 good quality OBI moving boxes (accept 40KG). Willing to sell the lot for 20€.
Also a pile of other "assorted" boxes from a move before this one (therefore used twice before). 10 of these in total going for 5€.
Pickup in Munich North, Freimann near Heidemann Strasse.
Great evening everyone - though the weather was not quite in our favor, I think we made the best of it!
Our next meeting will be in two weeks on the weekend of April 5th - we'll decide on the activity on the Monday or Tuesday beforehand, depending on the weather forecast, so watch for a sign-up around that…
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…
when I was growing up, they actually made the donuts in the shops. My aunt would take us early on sunday mornings - around 5:30 or 6 - they would be frying and dusting and filling and selling - it was great, and the product was genuinely good.
I don't know when they switched to the factory made crap they serve…
Unemployment benefits in Munich, Germany
There are two types of unemployment benefits in Germany. Unemployment insurance (UI) benefits are paid only for a limited period. The potential length of UI receipt depends positively on the work-history in insured employment in the seven years prior to a benefit claim.…

Just did this today and wanted to update the thread, even though nothing has really changed from the information reported already.
1. Don't go to the consulate and expect to be seen. You'll be given a nice information card and sent the hell back home. Book your appointment online. The link to make an…
I have a serious bank problem and need some help from an English speaking " German bank paperwork understanding person."
My husband died and I now have my Certificate of Inheritance (which took ages) and the bank has produced
Paperwork with huge discrepancies and are most unhelpful and threatening.
I think the OP is being honest-- and actually investigating how to re-imagine the city.
I will say this, Munich isn't my favorite place in the winter months. It is dark, the people more withdrawn, the great public, outdoor spaces that make this city special aren't operating in the same way. In the summer…

I'm Adam, I'm half Englander, half Aussie, brought up in Manchester! I turned 25 in September, and have been drunk/hungover since! Moved to Munich in July, but have been back and forth to England to see fam/friends, as I came here straight off the back of a year travelling/working my…

Why are you assuming that the rent is lower here? The places with really cheap rent are also the places with very few jobs.
Browse the forum, you'll find many TTers who have difficulty finding a good job because they do not speak fluent German and/or do not have the qualifications that are expected here.…
a couple of years ago we had a Sushi Night, then I moved away, then I came back and therefore will try my luck at organizing something again.
The sushi night is always on the first Tuesday of the month. I'll post here with our choice of restaurant, you add your name to the list if you wish to join.
As far as I'm aware the only comments I've made about Pomeroy & Winterbottom were on Buying British snacks in Munich in April 2003. As such, they referred to the prices you charged nearly eight and a half years ago. If you're suggesting you lowered the prices a few years later then that's good…
Sepp Krätz, owner of the Hippodrom tent and manager of the popular Andechser am Dom and Waldwirtschaft, today was sentenced to 22 months on parole and fined a whopping €570,000 for tax evasion to the tune of €1.1 million – and the judge actually gave him a 50% discount on the fine because “your future as…
Asia Feinkost Haus
This place is very good too. It has Chinese / Thai / Indian / Arabic / Everyland. Big as your average Tengelmann, clean, bright and friendly. The guys / gals in the shop are open (to the point of embarassment) to questions about cooking. They even have a…
this Sunday afternoon, the 25th, I want to go sketching at the Glyptothek museum:
This has classical Greek and Roman statues, mostly bodies and heads.
The museum is just by Königsplatz u-bahn on the U2 and the entry fee on a Sunday is 1 euro.
I'll be at the ticket counter…
My iphone 5 was not charging properly after only 1 year of use. Well annoyed about having to travel to Apple in Oberhausen or Cologne for repairs until I decided on (obvious) self help. Now it works fine again. If anyone else should have this problem, here's the reason - pocket lint in the charging port.…
