I've lived in Munich for six months during my Erasmus internship. It is a great place to live generally offering high quality of life, and it would hands down be the best city to live in Germany if: -It wasn't expensive af, especially rent prices -It wasn't almost impossible to find a place to rent (like literally the only way to find is through acquaintances) -Bavaria was less bureaucratic and more tech-progressive -It had more... young people; much of the youth there is because of the two of the best unis in Germany (LMU & TUM) that receive many EU & International students, otherwise it would have been a city of old people. Everything else is pretty much great in Munich, which is quite liberal in an otherwise conservative state.
