Travel options in Munich

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.

Local transport Munich, Germany

  • Munich’s public transport system consists of over ground (S-Bahn) trains, underground (U-Bahn) trains, trams, and buses. The ticketing system is easy as there is only one ticket needed to travel on all of these.
  • Just make sure you have the right ticket as fines can be heavy if you’re caught by an inspector without one or holding an incorrect ticket. You need to validate all tickets using a stamping machine which are usually at the entrance to stations and also on all public transport.
  • The pricing system is a little more confusing because of Munich’s various “rings” and zones. Single trip tickets start from €2.60 and day tickets are €11.20. If you’re staying a few days its best to get a weekly IsarCard.
  • Price again depends on the number of zones you travel. You can get an IsarCard at the MVV (The Münchner Verkehrs- und Tarifverbund) outlet in Marienplatz or in many (but not all)
