When you’re not relaxing at your student accommodation, take time to explore your new neighbourhood. Start your day with a creamy latte and a pastry at one of Peppino Espressobar’s picturesque outdoor tables, before discovering almost 100 years of automobile excellence at the BMW Museum. Later, get tickets to see the sharks at impressive aquarium SEA LIFE München; or in winter, spend the day sledding down the Luitpoldpark toboggan run. In the evening, admire the sunset from the top of the Olympiaturm tower, then catch a concert at the Olympiastadion München, the centrepiece arena of the 1972 Olympics.
From your private studio at Youniq Munich, it’s a 20-minute bus ride to Technische Universität München, and a 25-minute journey to Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. Exploring on weekends is equally easy, whether you keep a bike in the safe storage or walk eight minutes to the Frankfurter Ring U Bahn stop. Sample Bavaria’s best-known export at the Viktualienmarkt beer garden, or lose yourself amidst the gothic majesty of Marienplatz, the city’s historic main square.
In between adventures, your fully furnished home is the ultimate place to unwind. Pause in the lobby to catch up with friends, or to exchange a few words with the friendly receptionist. When you get upstairs, stack your books on the shelves before popping a snack in your kitchenette microwave. Use the high-speed internet to research a paper at your bedroom desk, or to Skype your family back home. When you’re done, curl up on the comfy bed and tune into your favourite cable TV shows.
If you’re keen to stay in shape, you’ve got the best facilities imaginable right on your doorstep. At Olympiapark München, you’ll find swimming pools, outdoor sports pitches, a skating rink and a fully equipped gym. After a workout, make the most of your all-inclusive utilities with a hot shower in your ensuite bathroom, before taking your washing down to the on-site laundry facility. In the evening, go out for a meal with your friends – try gyros pitta at authentic Greek taverna Nur Einmal Leben, or head to Rabiang Thai for a taste of south-east Asian noodles.
