OpenStreetMap held a mapping party in this area on 21-22 October 2006 to make a creative commons licensed map that may be used in Wikipedia articles.

Thanks to all those wikipedians that took part.

The current population is 1.539.298 (Stand: 31.10.2018). I tried correcting the article but it was too difficult. Could someone please correct this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:46, 25 May 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Name in Bavarian[edit]

Being Bavarian myself, I have honestly never heard anybody calling München "Minna". Everybody says "Minga" or, much less common, "Micha". I am quite certain that "Minna" is not more common than "Minga", at least not for Bavarians. So maybe this article should only use "Minga", as it can be seen in the corresponding German article about this city. 2601:240:8201:F170:2414:E637:E55D:AEDE (talk) 05:33, 22 September 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Do you have a published, reliable source for that? Dgndenver (talk) 05:07, 10 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Minorities in Munich[edit]

Minorities seem to be mentioned only as stereotypes in this article and connected articles. The only mention of the gay community is under a "Nightlife" section. The Turkish-speaking people are mentioned briefly in Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt. Nemo 08:12, 27 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

WMO data on Munich's (and Germany's) precipitation days[edit]

(Copied over from WP:WEATHER, this problem exists in many German city articles, but this is by far the most popular.)

It seems that there is an inconsistency with WMO data on German precipitation days. WMO data regularly shows 40-50 days more of precipitation than the DWD or Infoclimat, while using the same threshold (that'd be 1.0mm). Examples abound, but aside from this article (compare Infoclimat), Konstanz is another good example. My guess is that the WMO numbers are actually using a 0.1mm threshold and are mislabeled, or are otherwise inaccurate. I will start removing these parameters in a few days if there are no objections or explanations. Uness232 (talk) 19:20, 16 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
