Notice: I would like to sublet my studio apartment in Munich for August and September 2009. The rent is $500 per month, including utilities. The apartment has basic furnishings and consists of a living/bedroom, a kitchen, and a full bath with shower. It is located in the Schwabing/Max Vorstadt area and is about a 10 minute walk to the university and public transportation. There are plenty of grocery stores, restaurants, and bakeries, all within close walking distance.
