According to http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/your_money/381351.stm Munich is not in the 10 most expensive cities of the world. -- Nils 05:12, 6 Apr 2004 (EDT)

I looked at the site and it appears to be either a Cult or some kind of Anarchic Organization which has been accused (according to the likatien website) of being a place where child sexual abuse occurs. Unless someone who actually speaks German can vouch for this community, I'm deeply uncomfortable with leaving this in the main article. -- Colin 18:20, 24 Sep 2004 (EDT)
Well, I have done some research on the above "likatien" community. It seems to be a kind of ideological, not neccessarily religious group of totaly about 160 persons. They call themselves a "tribe", and their name referes on an old Germanic tribe that lived in the area around Füssen, a town in the South of Germany where the center of the "tribe" is located. As they tell on their web site, they feel spiritualy closely related to the Hopy indians. The "tribe" is hierarchicaly organized with a probabely guru-like leader. Many of the "liktians" work in companies owned by the tribe getting some pocket-money for their own. Some years ago, the tribe tried to get some political influence by lancing members into different political parties. Resuming, we can say, the Likatian Tribe" for sure is controversial. I would recomment not to advertise it. -- Hansm 09:48, 2004 Sep 25 (EDT)
Anyhow, I had a look at their homepage, and lo and behold: there's even a page dealing with the mudslinging: one of the topics being that of the case of sex with kids. Appaerently it comes back to one uninvited long-term visitor who did something illegal with a kid(and as far as my german goes: non-penetrating!). It was discovered and he got a jail sentence for it. As most other societies the tribe makes it clear that they in no way allow sex with children...
As an experience 'communitarian' then I'm able to add that all our places would be a lot better and easier if they only attracted complete mature and harmonic visitors, however it's impossible to filter well enough...you may even be the next to come!??!?!
So there you go...Basically what this topic seem to be doing is to join the witch hunt against everyone who's not part of the conform consumer society...but don't worry...we're used to it and hard skinned ;o)..as long as you don't send in the Marines...(to get our bio-gas!)

Just wanted to add further info on public transportation because I noticed that the article is not completely correct. For example, it is, afaik unnecessary to spend 8 Euros for traveling between the airport and the central station. Link On this website theres also a very useful tool which shows the best way to get to your destination after you enter your current location. 21:46, 2004 Nov 10
I added the Dachau Concentration camp under "see," because its a memorial and I thougt it would fit better under there with the Museums, Galleries, and Memorails sub section. Anyone not agree with that? It is a Gedenkstaette (Memorial). Sapphire 17:05, 16 Apr 2005 (EDT)
Since Munich is known for being expensive, does anyone think we need to have that in under the Sleep section. Kingjeff 12:08, 3 Feb 2006 (EST)
This should be ironic, shouldn't it? As I am not a native speaker it is hard to understand the intention of this statement. As I am a local, I am not concerned about it, but if I was from e.g. France I would be... --Flip666 09:53, 7 April 2006 (EDT)
I started an article about Bavarian Beer. Because I am a beginner to wikitravel I don't want to integrate it in the main article yet. I am also not sure if it belongs to the main article. For now it is more about Munich beer... What do you think? --Flip666 16:52, 7 April 2006 (EDT)
I changed the "Clubs and Discos"-Headline back to its original state. I am not sure about the definition of these words in the English language, but in German a disco usually is big (>1000 people), a club is smaller, maybe even a bigger bar with a dancefloor. So there are many discos in this list, but almost no bars. Anyway, if you decide to change the headline please change it in the district articles, too! --Flip666 07:16, 9 April 2006 (EDT)
