You have made the big move to Munich, beaten off all the other apartment hunters and found a place called home (if you are still searching, there are some apartment finding tips here). Your next step is to enter the system and register your stay.
If you are staying for more than three months in Germany, you are required to register your address within two weeks of arrival at the Residence Registration Office in Munich, or Bürgerbüro. There are six locations in the city - here is the list, together with closest public transport for each:
Hauptgebäude KVR (closest public transport U3 / U6 Poccistraße) Ruppertstr. 19 80466 München
Pasing (S-Bahn 3, 4, 6, 8, 20 Bahnhof Pasing, Tram 19, Rathaus Pasing) Landsberger Straße 486 81241 München
Leonrodstraße (U1 Rotkreuzplatz) Leonrodstr. 21 80634 München
Orleansplatz (U5 Ostbahnhof; all S-Bahns) Orleansstr. 50 81667 München
Riesenfeldstraße (U3 Petuelring, bus 178 Anhalter Platz) Riesenfeldstr. 75/1 80809 München
Forstenrieder Allee (U3 Forstenrieder Allee) Forstenrieder Allee 61a 81476 München
Office opening times for applications are as follows:
Mon, Wed, Fri - 07:30 - 12:00
Tues - 08:30 - 12:00 and 14:00 - 18:00
Thurs - 08:30 - 15:00
In order to register, you will need to bring a passport of ID, as well as a statement from your landlord that you are living there. This is known as a Wohnungsgeberbestätigung, and a link to the form is at the bottom of this article. You can also authorise someone else to register on your behalf (another form on the same link), and if you choose this option, that person must bring both your identification document, as well as their own.
Once you have registered, you will receive written confirmation. This document is important so keep it safe, as you will need it for various procedures, such as opening a bank account. If you change address while in Munich, this change has to be registered with the same procedure.
Once you leave the country, you are required to deregister (and yes, there is a form for that), although you are not required to deregister if you move to another location within Germany.
The system is relatively painless, although you may be subjected to queues, so come prepared with a little patience.
