You can walk around the central area of Munich fairly easy and experience a lot of the main attractions, and also some of the hidden side streets that contain shopping gems. You will eventually want to explore some of the quirkier districts and the best way to do this is via public transport. Munich’s public transport is clean and efficient (like most of Germany); only getting your head around which ticket you need can be a bit of a headache (see below).
You won’t really need a car if you’re just planning on being in Munich and visiting the nearby districts as public transport is so good. Munich roads are however some of the best in Germany: smooth, signposted and filled with wealthy Bavarians driving the latest model German cars. You can join them, just make sure your car is good enough to keep up. Remember there’s no speed limit on the autobahn.
€18 is the approximate cost of hiring a bike, and it’s well worth it as you will find Munich an extremely bike-friendly city thanks to upgraded cycle lanes and infrastructure. Voted 11th best cycling city by Business Insider Magazine, still a little behind its bigger rival Berlin.
