Many families live in Trudering as it is a very quiet part of Munich.
Riem is much livelier. Until 1992 the Munich Airport was situated in Riem and was then moved to the north of the city. In 1998 the Munich tradeshow and exhibition centre Messe München International moved to the former airport grounds. In 2005 the national Garden Show took place in Riem. An extensive landscape park with a swimming lake remained.
Today many apartment houses for about 16,000 inhabitants have been built. Close by is the Munich horse race track (Galopprennbahn). Horse races at Riem attract many different people. It is also a popular destination for a family outing.
