which comes first... (Munich)

I will be moving from the US to Munich in late May/start of June and I have a question about banking and housing:

I assume that to rent an apartment long term, I'll need a bank account.

I assume that to open a bank account, I need a permanent address (ie apartment).

For all of it I'm going to need euros instead of dollars...carrying around a bunch of cash retrieved from ATMs does not seem like the best way to do it : /

Any advice for how to proceed and order things properly? Sorry if this is very basic, but I just don't know the ins and outs yet so any tips are appreciated!
