What do I need to know before retiring in Munich?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Munich, they said...

"Munich is a great city for retirees, offering a high quality of life and plenty of activities to keep you busy. Before retiring in Munich, it is important to research the cost of living and the availability of healthcare services. It is also important to consider the language barrier, as most people in Munich speak German. Additionally, it is important to research the visa requirements for retirees, as well as the tax implications of living in Germany. Finally, it is important to familiarize yourself with the culture and customs of Munich, as this will help you to integrate into the local community," remarked another expat who made the move to Munich, Germany.

"Do it! Munich is on the cusp of the Alps. Good ski areas are 1 hr. south of Munich. Lake Garda (for wind surfing, MTB, etc.) is 400 km south of Munich in Italy. Prague is a 4 hr. drive to the east. This is a safe, clean city," explained one expat living in Munich, Germany.
