What are the best neighborhoods to live in Munich? American moving to Munich

9/29/2013 05:09 EST

Well, that is an open ended question. Firstly, you have to find a place to live, which is not so easy in Munich. I live in Unterfohring which is about 5 kilometres northeast of Marien Platz, which is downtown Historic Munich. Ismaning is a nice place too but is about 8 kilometres from the centre. The trains run each 20 minutes and are best way to get around I find. Overall northwest Munich is nice and easy to get around. The centre is cool if you can find an apartment. The problems with finding an apartment are many. There are plenty advertised, but the owners are picky and will only rent them to people they like - and being German is who they like.. They prefer very long term is why. There are some websites I have seen that make it easier to find a place. Be prepared for the challenge of finding a place to live. Which area you end up is thus dependent on who will rent to you. Honestly, all of Munich is nice.

Forgive me for coming into this conversation...would there be a city newspaper there in Munich? Do they advertise apartments in them?
For someone who will rely heavily on public transportation would Berlin be a better place to move to?

the 2 biggest Newspapers in Munich are "Sueddeutsche Zeitung ( and "Merkur" ( Not sure about whether Berlin or Munich has better public transport, but both will have decent ones. However, you will have to fork out way more for rent in Munich.
