Munich is a charming, international city that has gained popularity among expats and students for its lifestyle, academic opportunities, and nightlife. The city’s proximity to the mountains, beautiful lakes, as well as neighbouring countries like Austria, Switzerland, and Italy within easy reach make it an attractive destination during summer as well as winter.

Germany offers quality education, with 240 state universities and 100 private universities located throughout the country. Technical schools, business or engineering schools (Fachochschule) with an emphasis on vocational training are also available to foreign students. Several other schools and language institutes offer German courses for foreigners.  

Berlin is cosmopolitan, diverse, relaxed, and easy going – more than you would think for a capital city. Over the past few years, it’s become very popular among international students and expats for its great lifestyle, academic opportunities, and equally fantastic nightlife. Berlin shows its best side in the summer, as it is a green city with lots of parks, lakes, and beer gardens inviting you to hang out and relax.

The Federal Republic of Germany (commonly known as Germany), which is found in Central Europe, is one of the world's most popular expat destinations. Over the years, it has attracted thousands of young students, professionals, as well as retirees due to its economic prosperity as well as for its rich historical and cultural heritage. Moreover, its cities offer a pleasant atmosphere and lifestyle. You will have no trouble in adapting there, especially if you come from a European Union country and know some German which is the country's official language.

If you intend to settle in Germany with your children, their education will definitely be one of your main concerns, especially if you are going to work. To whom should you entrust your children during your working hours and when you have to go out? Note that working parents can choose from various childcare services such as nurseries, kindergartens, child minding services, etc. You can enquire about these with your friends and colleagues, or with the closest local administration office to your place of residence.

Megnanimously - An American in Berlin

2 years ago

In Spring 2014 I moved from the Washington, D.C. area to Berlin, Germany with my husband to start a new adventure in a city we had never visited before. I started this blog as a way to share my new life with friends and family, and to connect with other expats and future expats! Most of my posts are about life in Berlin, our travels, tips for other expats, and the occasional post documenting my attempts at being the perfect Hausfrau.
