3 bits of news
Munich Transforms Gloomy Underpass
Ever noticed that gloomy underpass in the Ramersdorf district? Well, the transformation it's undergone will leave you gaping. Introducing the Riesige Rosi (big Rosi), our city's brand-new, free-to-access bouldering wall. Oh, and it’s not just any wall; it claims to be one of the largest public bouldering walls in the world.
The young and vibrant group behind this transformation, the Kraxlkollektiv, have spent months turning this 70-meter-long underpass on Rosenheimer Straße into a climbing enthusiast’s paradise.
More than 200,000 euros was pumped into the project, which was then decorated with vibrant graffiti designs.
Why did they do this? The vision is clear: revamp spaces in Munich that have been overlooked and offer every resident, regardless of their wallet size, a chance to enjoy sports.
The Big Rosi is already open to everyone so stop on by.

Pop-up studio comes to Laim
On Agnes-Bernauer-Straße, where the old Asien Perle restaurant once stood, is a new venue brimming with artistic energy. Thanks to Mucbook Clubhaus and Café Steinchen teaming up with Urban Progress, we have ourselves the Pearl.
Think of it as a cozy creative campfire where artists, creators and thinkers can gather round to inspire and be inspired. Want to sharpen your skills or simply mingle with fellow creatives? They’ve got workshops and networking events tailored just for that.
The goal with the Pearl is to offer a platform for artists to both produce and showcase their magic. Come Thursdays through Saturdays from 6 p.m. on, and you can grab a drink at the bar, soak in the vibes from the rooftop terrace, or even partake in their diverse cultural offerings from art exhibits to concerts.
Plus, for those wondering, the project is generously supported by the European Union as well as several local bodies.

Parents, plan your summer ‘24 family vacation now (insider tip)
Germans plan their Ferienurlaub way earlier because school holidays are known way in advance and kids need to be entertained. But obviously, parents also want a break.
What if we told you about a great vacation where:
kids would be busy with animals (ponies, cows, chickens, rabbits, and more), rides, and playgrounds
you can enjoy BBQ and grill every evening
you’ll have stress-free holidays
and be close to nature as well…?
Well, let us introduce you to the concept of “Ferienbauernhof (farmstead holiday)”.
We recently went to Ferienbauernhof Ohr near by Ansbach. It was a real eye-opening experience for me as an expat.
There are many of these Bauernhofs in Bavaria and Austria and now that we’ve experienced it we are recommending you to check them out as well.
P.S. We’ve only been to one so far and we’d rate our Bauernhof a 4 out of 5 because the amenities were a little older than expected and we would have liked a pool. But overall it was still a great experience.
Note: These Bauernhof vacations get booked up to a year in advance. We recommend planning now for next summer. If you have any questions, drop us a message. We are happy to help. – Aazar

Daintree Pinsa Bar
Let us introduce you to the world of Pinsa – pizza’s delicious cousin – right in our town.
Nestled in the heart of city center, Daintree Pinsa Bar is not just about fantastic food, it’s also an experience because they've totally upped the game with a smorgasbord of vegan delights. Our taste buds were particularly smitten by the Vegiana Jones, boasting rich truffles and savory mushrooms. And for those who fancy a little kick, give the Spicy Vegan a whirl.
If you're interested in sipping on a cocktail or two, they've got a curated list that complements their menu perfectly.
