3 bits of news
Munich public transport workers on strike
Oh boy, it looks like the Verdi union is at it again.
Starting Thursday, March 2, at the ungodly hour of 3:30 a.m. and lasting until midnight on Friday, MVG employees are being urged to stop working on buses, subways, and trams. Thankfully the S-bahn is “expected” to run as usual since it is operated by Deutsche Bahn.

Uncover hidden art gems
Guess what? The Central Art Institute for Art History has come up with a brand new interactive app to celebrate its 75th anniversary. It's called the MunichArtToGo and it’s available on your App Store or Google Play Store.
It lets you explore some of Munich’s most fascinating art and architecture stories in a fun way. With it, you will get to discover the secrets behind some of Munich’s most famous landmarks. From Ludwig II’s Wintergarten to the art trade palaces from the Prince Regent era.
Download the app to embark on your digital art journey. The app uses your location to guide you to nearby art histories and hidden gems. But don’t worry if you’re not exactly a “walk and explore” type of person - you can use the app from the comfort of your couch, too.

Grape Expectations: Weinhopping in Munich
Looking for a fun night out in Munich? Then you’ve gotta try “Weinhopping.” It’s like a pub crawl, but with wine and classier (or perhaps rosier). You will get to hit three awesome wine bars (all within walking distance) and sip on different wines at each location. Plus you get to meet new people along the way.
The Deluxe package allows you to enjoy three glasses of wine and a small snack to keep you going. It’s the perfect way to explore Munich’s wine scene.
The event takes about three hours and ends on a casual note. You can sign up alone or with a group of friends as they divide you into teams. All details will be sent to you via email the day before the event.
