How can I find a flat?

- Do some sports together - it's easy to meet people when doing sports. Just take part in "Fit im Park" programme during the summer or "Hallensportprogramm" during winter. Both services are free of charge.
- Attend a course at the Munich Volkshochschule (adult education centre) (only in German) - cooking, dance or language courses are particularly good for getting to know people quickly.
- Just sit in beer gardens or cafés - this is common in Munich and is an easy and relaxed way of getting talking to people.
