3 bits of news

Sendlinger Tor's makeover

Sendlinger Tor subway station is not just your regular transit hub anymore. As of December 12, the mezzanine with new shops was officially opened. 

So, what's in store for you? 

Well, from groceries to magazines, there's a little bit of everything to spice up your daily commute. And it’s open from 8am to 8pm.

We've all seen the Sendlinger Tor station evolve over nearly seven years of renovations. And for those of us who've been navigating the construction maze, the most significant relief is here: the heavy-duty work is almost done. 

However there's still a bit of construction left to wrap up on the ceilings, façades, and a couple more entrances coming in 2024.

For more details, read here (in German). 

Munich to Hamburg: Travel in luxury

Starting from December 2023, the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) is rolling out their brand-spanking-new Nightjet trains on the Innsbruck-Munich-Hamburg route. 

This isn't your typical night train snooze; it's a mini-holiday on wheels. These new trains offer individual mini cabins – a compact, personal space with all you need for a peaceful night's journey. Think storage area, a foldable table, reading lamp, and even coat hooks. It's like the train version of a tiny house.

Now, let's talk costs because, yes, luxury comes with a price tag. While the starting fares are reasonable, the ticket prices can climb higher depending on demand and booking time. So planning ahead could save you a few bucks.

Find out more about the new Nightjet here (in German) and book your adventure here.

This exhibition comes for the first time to Germany and promises to bewitch everyone with its fun, illusions and behind-the-scenes glimpses.

1 new restaurant/café to try


TenInch, a name inspired by the classic length of a kebab, blends vibrant Middle Eastern street food with a splash of local flair.

They're infusing their love for local regionality and seasonality into every bite, with a strong commitment to sustainability and responsibility. 

Their menu is a delightful journey through the Middle East, featuring an array of exquisite MEZZE - think of it as the oriental cousin to antipasti or tapas. You'll be treating your taste buds to Lebanese bulgur salad, creamy hummus, smoky eggplant, and more, all served in a sociable, shareable style.

Good to Know

  • Price Point: Expect a unique culinary experience with prices ranging from 15 to 21 euros for a tantalizing kebab with bread, and about 22 euros for a combo of 2 kebabs with a refreshing salad. 

  • Portion Size: The portions are thoughtfully sized, perfect for sharing. 

  • Favorites: crowd favorites include the Lebanese bulgur salad and the hummus. The aubergine dish, though mild in seasoning, offers an authentic taste of North African spices.

  • Extra Perks: Expect friendly and attentive service that enhances your meal. 

Head over to TenInch (a block from Implerstraße) for an unforgettable dining experience, and don’t forget to book in advance for a guaranteed spot.
