Living in Munich
Munich has a mix of modern architecture and famously beautiful historic buildings, having reconstructed many of the buildings that were almost completely destroyed in both world wars, appearing remarkably how it did in the 1800s. With streets lined with Mediterranean style cafes and Mitteuropa beer halls, the city centre has retained a small town feel, with Germans referring to the Bavarian paradox as ‘’laptops and lederhosen.’’
Munich in a nutshell
Munich has excellent secondary schools including numerous English international schools plus European, French and Japanese international schools.
Munich’s top two universities are: Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. Germany’s universities are free for all nationalities and Munich is a leading location for science and research, with a long list of Nobel Prize laureates.
Activities and Entertainment
Munich has much to offer in terms of sights and attractions. Sitting in the heart of Munich is Marienplats Square, with an array of markets just as was in 1158. The English Gardens is a must-see public park, Frauenkirche –the gothic-period city church and the Deusches Museum of science and technology are among a few of the most famous.
A sophisticated and wealthy town, Munich is a hub of art and culture, business and finance and research and innovation, boosted by top research universities, world-class museums and galleries and multi-national companies.
