People are starting to reach out to me now when they have Munich questions. A friend and colleague of my husbands had a few questions for a co-worker that’s relocating to Munich. I figure my answers may help just more than one person, so here they are.
Internations is a great resource. Full disclosure: I don’t really go to the events myself. I think it may be a little bit of singles scene – which can be great if your unattached. I would have been all over it ten years ago. They also have a lot of group activities going on around lots of different interests, so there’s something for everyone.

Everybody knows about Toytown, but I’ll include that link just in case.
