We’ve managed it. We found a three room Altbau (pre-war building, but possibly code for “high ceilings”) in Munich’s Glockenbachviertel, with rent a little under our limit, and without an agent’s fee (usually 2 month’s rent), noch.
It’s just across the road from our favourite cafe – Cafe Maria (too cool to have a website), and just a street away from the river.
Looking for Altbaus in the Glockenbachviertel and Haidhausen has started to give me some idea of what parts of Munich were still standing after the war, and made me notice how many of the buildings are post-war. I wish I could find some before/after pictures of the various neighbourhoods.

I very much liked your old flat in the SchillerstraÃŸe. Why did you move, and how does the coffee taste at Cafe Maria? :) The Flaucher rocks, btw. :)
Christian, we needed more space. My place in Schellingstrasse is a 2-room and this is a 3.
I hope you don’t mind sharing…
What is the price range of the new apartment you are staying in?
Thank you for your help.
Caroline, 1050 Euros inluding “Nebenkosten” (but without gas and electric cost). If you speak German, check http://immobilienmarkt.sueddeutsche.de.
Just started looking for a new place as well.
Hey, fancy getting back into climbing? I miss it!
