Returning to Germany after over a decade abroad (Munich)

Hi guys,

After 14 years in London it is finally time to pack up my belongings and return to Germany. Just got a job offer so this is it – the fun starts now!

I am 46 years old, social worker by profession, quiet, clean and easy to get along with. My background is mainly in statutory social work (child protection/ care proceedings), however, my new role in Germany will be different.

Would love to find a small flat but do realise that this is likely to be a challenge in Munich (and I thought London was bad!). Have enjoyed living in house shares while living in London and happy to consider this option.

Have been working for the same local authority for many years and have a 2-month notice period so realistically we are talking mid-Sept Protected content .

Anyone out there who has any ideas or knows someone who is renting out a flat/ room? Happy to consider a 6-month period to begin with. Costs – well, reasonable, I guess, in as much as this is possible in Munich.

Please feel free to share within your network.

Many thanks + best wishes,
