About

My Adventures in Munich was born in 2011 when Elena moved to Munich following the relocation of her German husband. 


One of the first things she did in Munich was to buy Lola (her bike) and soon right after she started blogging about her adventures living, studying and working in Munich.

Experienced Expat: Elena became an expat for the first time after graduating, when she relocated to Belgium to start her career in Marketing. Since that day she's worked for the Australian Government in Europe and for the most innovative start-ups in Silicon Valley. 

When Elena started blogging she was one of the very few expats writing in English about the expat life in Munich. A few months later the Blog became so popular that was featured in InterNations and got nominated during the Munich Web Week Isarnetz as the Best Munich Blog! 

Today it is one of the most influential blogs about the expat life in Munich. Read about us in the National German Newspapers:

The Blog in Die Zeit
The Blog in Die Welt
Interview in Internations

The in 2013 Elena relocated to Silicon Valley where she worked with the most exciting start-ups (check her Blog in the US). 

Elena came back to Germany during the summer of 2015 and since then she is working in Innovation and HR Strategy for a large international tech company in Munich. And she's blogging again about her adventures living and working as an expat in Munich.

  4. Hi there. I'm M. I love your blog. I run into it when i was fishing info on Munich. We're moving our family there from GR in the summer and i had some questions. we have three children who have been taking piano and balette for several years now. i don't know German well so it's difficult for me to look into the options they may have. are there music schools they can attend in the afternoon? how does the system work there with afterschool activities in music, dance, sports, the arts etc. i would appreciate any info and links you might come accross. thank you for your time. Guten Tag!

  6. Hey Elena!

    My name is Naina and I've visited many times before (my boyfriend is German and we've been together for 6 years, long distance for 4) and I'm finally here for (hopefully) a long time to do my Masters. I absolutely love this city and love finding blogs that highlight all the wonders it has to offer. Thanks for all your info!

  18. Hi Elena,

    your blog is really nice, and contains a well of information. I am particularly surprised, yet amused by your light hearted approach to the difficulty in achieving fluency with the German language (I am definitely picking up the Mark Twain book). I am currently in level A1 and have that same level of optimism that in a few months I can converse...it probably still is true, yet aiming for fluency does take time...realistically speaking.

    I wanted to ask you about finding jobs in Munich as an English speaker, which would explain my eagerness to speak German....as I noticed it is a crucial prerequisites for jobs here. I am trying to look through the blog to see if you have talked about this topic at all.

    It would be nice to hear your side of the story/adventure for sure :)

    Kind Wishes,

    New in Munich

  19. My name is Maria and I just moved into the city. I have to say thanks because your site is the reason why I was FINALLY able to find my new place to live! :-)

    My search for a place was actually a really stressful experience and a pain, that’s why I’m writing to let you know that I wanted to recommend that you extend your list.The ones that helped the most were:
