Welcome to Munich

Of all the places I have worked and travelled in 95 countries so far, none has stayed with me as much as my time in Munich in 1989-90. Some 25 years have passed since I earned my living as a bellboy at luxurious Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten. I have certainly aged in that quarter-century, but how has Munich changed, and what will it be like living in one of Europe's most beautiful cities after more than a decade of full-time living on an Adriatic island in Croatia?

Join me, Paul, as I get to know the city of Munich as it is a quarter decade later. From the latest news, how to get resident permits and learning Bayrisch, to the week's exciting events and secret places for kids, join me at the start of a journey to discover the very best of life in a city which captured my heart some 25 years ago. And if you would like to help us explore the city, or contribute to the site with your own Munich experiences, we would love to hear from you on This email address is being protected from spambots.
