Essential Apps to have in Munich

Trying to navigate your life in Munich? theres an App for that!



I am honestly so glad to be one of the later generations becoming an expat. In my first year, these modern conviences saved my life. From finding my way in German to finding my way in the metro. Most answers were easy and downloadable. Therefore, I hope my list will also bring you some ease in your München transitionas well.



Two very helpful Munich life apps are, naturally, the Munich city app and Abfallwirtschaftsbetrieb.


The official Munich website just turned out into a mobile app that offers information on events, shopping, hospitals, pharmacys, recommendations,  aka practically everythning.

I’m sure you know how important recycling is to the people here. For those coming from places where the seperating of recyclables isnt so distinct, this app offers information on when the trash will picked up and where to bring ( and seperate) your recyclables.

Learning German honestly takes ages. However, I have found this app to be the new love of my German life. Developed locally, this bad boy is great for finding all your vocabulary needs with much more accuracey than other apps like google translate.



Travel and Transport

The next essential list is transport. Since most of us in Munich dont have cars, our transport lives revolve around the metro system. Luckily there are some handy dandy apps for checking schedules, purchasing tickets, and even renting a bike or car when in need!

Food Delivery

Of the essential apps,  food is probably my most essential. Over the past couple years I’ve noticed a huge boom in liefern services. There are so many options for food delivery, you can have anything from nearly every resteraunt delivered with a push of a button. So my dear friends, here are the most popular apps for your eating needs.
