Skyline of Munich and the Alps Munich – roughly 1,5 million inhabitants and Germany’s third biggest city – has the highest quality of life of all major cities in Germany. Green spaces and parks (about 20% of the total area of Munich consists of parks), friendly people (if they’re a real ?Münchner?, someone who’s born and raised in Munich – there are not as many of this kind as you think, if they seem impolite, they’re not really), the Bavarian way of life, rural character (?Munich is a big village“ – you will hear this saying a lot of times and it’s true!), and the proximity to the Alps are some of the factors that make life in Munich so unique. If you are thinking about moving to Munich, or if the decision has already been made, you will surely have a great time in the ?northernmost city of Italy“ (as Munich is called by many people) and with our help your new life in Munich will get the best start. Olympiapark One thing you need to be aware of when taking moving to Munich into consideration is, that the cost of living in Munich unlike in Berlin for example, is very high. But we’ll discuss more on this and the other little downside of Munich – i.e. the hunt for an affordable flat – later on. Munich is so much more than just an overpriced city with unlimited shopping possibilities, luxury apartments and rich snobbish children spending their rich parents‘ money (as you often hear on television) at P1 (Munich’s No.1 night-destination for rich people’s children looking to spend their parents‘ money). Munich is a vibrant and multicultural city where about 25% of its inhabitants are of foreign origin. It’s full of cool bars, especially in Schwabing and the Glockenbachviertel, huge parks (the Englischer Garten is bigger than NY’s Central Park), culture (approx. 65 museums including the biggest technical museum in the world) and all kinds of indoor and outdoor activities. Many major German companies, including Siemens or BMW have their headquarters in Munich, which means that there are many well paid jobs which makes moving to Munich so attractive for a lot of people. Hofbr?uhaus am Platzl But before you can enjoy all the benefits of Munich, you will need to deal with German bureaucracy, which is sometimes very time-consuming and will cost you a decent amount of nerves. But don’t worry, with our help and first hand information you will be settled in the capital of Bavaria in no time and be able to enjoy this unique city to the full. Best bank account in Munich Getting a bank account in Munich should be your No. 1 priority. Without a German bank account you will not be able to rent a flat or sign up with an internet provider, electricity provider or even get a German mobile contract. Continue reading about how to sign up for a bank account in Munich. Insider tip: With DKB – Deutsche Kredit Bank you can already sign up for a bank account in Germany from abroad. Other German banks will ask you for a German address, which is kind of a catch 22. As already mentioned, no German bank account means not being able to rent a place in Munich, which means no German bank account. You get the catch. Rent an apartment in Munich View from Sankt Peter If you have read our insider tip (of course you did, right?) you have already successfully signed up with a German bank and are now able to tackle the biggest obstacle in Munich, which is finding an apartment. In any other city the normal course of action would be to check the usual websites, look at many apartments, and then hopefully get your dream apartment. But Munich is a bit different as there are too many people and not enough places. So if you already know people in Munich ask them to keep an ear out in case they hear something about a place. Insider tip: Check Immowelt for apartments (if you don’t have people who can help you with first hand info about empty flats). Make sure to show up to as many viewings as possible and have all necessary documents ready to hand them in straight away. Internet provider in Munich After taking care of finding your new home in Munich, it is now time to get an internet provider in Munich. Make sure you’re clear about what you need from your internet provider. If you only want to check your Facebook messages and emails, then the smallest and cheapest contracts are fine for you. But if you are online 24/7 and possibly stream a lot of movies, you might want to get fast internet (DSL or via cable or glass fiber). Continue reading about the best internet providers in Munich to find the best solution for your needs. Insider tip: Telekom is likely the best internet provider if it comes down to speed and you are thinking of combining it with your mobile phone contract(s), whereas 1&1 is probably the best solution for people who need less speed and put more focus on good prices and service, while M-Net offers very fast internet via cable (or glass fiber) for very reasonable prices. Electricity Provider in Munich Once you move into a new apartment you will automatically be signed up with SWM, which is the Grundversorger in Munich. While this is very convenient it is also costing you a lot of money. Instead of staying with SWM we highly recommend switching to another electricity provider in order to save a lot of money. Insider tip: Right now our No.1 pick for electricity provider in Munich is Lifestrom . Not only do they offer very good prices, which are guaranteed to stay the same until June 2019(!), but also are they offering the best sign-up bonuses right now of all electricity providers.
