Hi,  I'm looking to move to Hamburg in June and I just wondered if there was an ex-pat community in Hamburg that regulalrly get together??  Obviously I want to get involved in German life!! But it would also be good to make contact with fellow Englishmen/women! Thanks

I've read when you register at the town hall you need passport and a copy of lease/rent agreement etc in order to get your registration card.  If your living with family/friends is a covering letter from them enough to confirm your address?? Thanks very much!

I'm in negotiations right now for a job in Hamburg. I have a few questions about the city though and hope someone can shed some light. What's the night life like? I'm not really one for clubs but do love good food and wine and live music (jazz, blues). Are there some areas of the city that are better for others in this regard? I hear there are some rreally rough areas of the city and hope to find a place in a nice part of town with some good restaurants and galleries/museums. Can anyone offer up some good locations for that? Thanks.

Been offered a job in Hamburg. I am currently in Bonn which I quite like. Is Hamburg worth the move or should I stay put?

I get loads of junk mail stuffed in my letter box each week which is a problem for me as I am away for long periods of time. Is there any service that I can approach to reduce the amount of junk? Most of it seems to be just fliers and newspapers from the local furniture stores and supermarkets, but there is an increasing amount of stuff being posted also.

Do you have a resolution for 2013? I want to go running regularly - but to make it a bit easier, I've decided to stay at home if temperature is below 5 Celsius.

I could do a "Mini-job" at a restaurant. What does this mean? Does this make sense for me (I am a student at TUH)?

Where can I find party supply? I am planning the 50th birthday for my husband and I want to decorate for a theme party - not sure what exactly, perhaps the 20s? Do you have any experiences? That would help a lot! Thank you.
