Newspapers

Munich is one of the main centres for media and publishing in Germany, so it's no surprise that one of Germany's main daily broadsheets, as well as numerous other daily or weekly papers, are published here. There is a vast selection of papers available from all over Germany - so why not try out a few to find out which one you like best?

Below, we would like to introduce you to two papers that are published in Munich and which also have an online version. However, a selection of international papers is available at several places in the city as well, so neither visitors nor expatriates need go without news from home.

Süddeutsche Zeitung
One of Germany's leading dailies, this newspaper features national and international news and reports, as well as extensive employment and accommodation sections. The Munich edition, available in the greater Munich area, contains a Munich supplement, while those editions sold in the town and districts (Landkreise) around Munich contain an additional local supplement. The Thursday edition features a supplement listing cinema programmes, cultural events and entertainment over the coming week.
Comes out on Mondays to Saturdays.

Münchner Merkur
This local newspaper focuses on the greater Munich area and is very strong in reporting news from both the city and the surrounding areas, as well as national and international news. It is a primary source for those who want to know what is going on in the Munich area.
Comes out on Mondays to Saturdays.

International Newspapers
The main international papers are available at the magazine shops at the airport, at the Ostbahnhof (Eastern Station) and Hauptbahnhof (Main Station), which are also open on Sundays and most bank holidays. There is an English bookshop called Words' Worth in Schellingstraße 3 (U3/U6, exit Universität) which sells English speaking newspapers.
