3 bits of news
No more parking at Gärtnerplaz
Gärtnerplatz will soon become a “superblock” – this means it will be car-free. Pedestrians and cyclists will have the right of way here. Only residents and vans can enter, and the speed limit will be no faster than ten kilometers per hour. Other traffic will have to go around the outside of this block.
Fun fact, I love the Gärtnerplaz, and I think this is the right decision. People can finally hang there. I took part in a flash mob there a few years ago – here’s the video for you.
You can find the news here (in German).

Prepare for winter with a cause
The MS BAZAR supports the vast spectrum of services provided by the DMSG, Landesverband Bayern.
One of the first organizations in Germany to provide help to those with multiple sclerosis is the German Multiple Sclerosis Society (DMSG). Bayern's Landesverband e.V. has spent over 60 years providing care for MS patients throughout Bavaria. At the moment, there are about 7,200 members.
More than 200 affiliated self-help groups and eight centers provide visitors with orientation, support, and advice, as well as assistance in setting up social assistance and services and, in some circumstances, benefits in kind and financial aid.

1 new restaurant/café to try
Our mothers create dishes from Turkish and Oriental cuisine at "Mama's Kitchen" for you. They also do it with a strong enthusiasm for wholesome cuisine.
It's excellent for our Muslim friends - Mama's Küche belongs to the Munich Forum for Islam (MFI), an association for Munich Muslims, with prayer and event rooms and offices. It is a family business, "mum and boss" Seher Malak is at the stove and cooks typical dishes here, using only fresh ingredients.
This is the most relevant review:
