Munich Lost and Found
MUNICH LOST AND FOUND:
Sad as it may be, sometimes things go pear shaped and you lose something along the way.
If this happens in Munich you could first try asking at one of the tourist info centres
or the Main Train Station
(Hauptbahnhof), you may get very lucky and find that someone has handed it in there.
If not you’ll have to contact the Munich Lost and Found Office (Fundbüro
