    Looks like Apple is expanding their retail stores further across Europe:

    Es ist sehr interessant...

    So these stores would be different than the Apple stores already in Germany? As I understand it, there are already specialized Apple Stores in Germany, and while they're not "official," the difference is minimal.

    I assume this is the site they're talking about: Link
    ...If you look at the Google cache, the Germany and Switzerland locations were added recently.

    Munich store progress.

    I was in Munich again yesterday at the (rumoured) site of the new Apple Store. Progress looks slow to me.

    They build this thing in Munich?

    Hmm, seems Gravis (the biggest german Apple retail store chain) has them beat to that too.

    Is Munich that Mac centric?

    I currently live in Berlin, and a lot of students and people working in the media, have MacBooks or MacBooks Pro. Maybe it's already over saturated.

    What the hell.

    the building is half of what was a very big sports store (Schuster), and work has been going on for a long time. Apple is certainly looking for people to work in a store in Munich, there are openings posted on the Apple .DE website http://www.apple.com/jobs/de/store

    Gravis moved last year to a larger store in "Am Tal" and during the leopard launch you just couldn't move, they sold out in minutes. Gravis is about 5 minute walk from this building I guess.

    new APPLE store Munich likely opening 10th december

    Apple Store in Munich will likely be opening in the next few days. German Computer Magazine CHIP report on their website:
    http://www.chip.de/news/Apple-Store-Muenchen-Schicker-Shoppingtempel_33873769.html

    They say that music artist Laith Al-Deen put a note on his website stating that he will be performing on 10th of december in Apple Retail Store. This information was removed quickly but -as usual- someone already spotted it :D

    Check the blue-and-white diamond pattern, made of blue iPod nanos, covering the glass front, a nice homage to the bavarian flag.

    Hmm... They certainly seem to have left out the typical German flair in the grand opening... what a shame.
