What are some typical ways to socialize, either with local people or with other expatriates? Are there groups or clubs that you can recommend?

I've met most of my friends through dog rescue so I can't really say. - Dec 25, 2017

Good restaurants, cinemas, cafes, clubs, etc. but be prepared to inhale some cigarrete smoke...EVERYBODY smokes! - Mar 18, 2009
Nice, but you will have to do it yourself. There are restaurants but choice is limited, no clubs (beside the IWC). Some started home-restaurants, playing sport together, pub quizes, gluhweincontests and karaoke-nights etc make it fun. - Dec 17, 2008
