Inflation in Germany rose again to 7.9 percent in August 2022
“Price increases for fuel and food continue to be the main cause of high inflation,” wrote Dr. Georg Thiel, president of the Federal Statistical Office, in a press release. “Two measures in the relief package in particular had only a slightly dampening effect on overall inflation from June to August 2022: the 9-euro ticket and the fuel discount.”
Fuel prices increased by 35.6 percent compared to this time last year and food prices rose by 16.6 percent between August 2021 and August 2022.

1 restaurant/café to try
HEYLUIGI - Casual dining
HeyLuigi in Munich’s Glockenbach neighborhood, has always been known for good pasta and intimidatingly large portions, but with the recent "relaunch" of their menu, the culinary offer is now on a whole new level.
PS It’s still great for a casual night out.
One reviewer said, “The menu has a variety of Italian meals so you will definitely find your favorite! My favorites are the salads and gluten-free options.The place can be a bit loud when it’s full but there is also a lovely terrace outside. It’s good to make reservations before you go.”
It has a great selection of Italian dishes and drinks, an original setting, and a nice atmosphere. Great for groups.
