Like many places near Munich, Garching bei München is a reasonably safe town. Various restaurants are scattered through town, but mainly in the center. The town is quiet and quaint, and has virtually no nightlife. However, there is a constant flux of scientists visiting the city because of the many scientific research institutes and scientific experiments located there, like the linear accelerator, the research reactor, ESO headquarters. Since parts of the Technische Universität München moved to Garching, many students frequent the city. The first nuclear research reactor of Garching, nicknamed Atomei (nuclear egg) made it into the citys coat of arms, and started the process leading to today's accumulation of research institutes. A number of roads and places are named after scientists, mathematicians and technical innovators, like for example "Carl-Von-Linde-Strasse", "Dieselstrasse", "Einsteinstrasse", "Eulerweg", "Heisenbergstrasse", "Max-Planck-Strasse", "Röntgenstrasse", "Schrödingerweg".
