Arriving in Munich

Munich, Germany is famous for its Oktoberfest, but this city is a great destination any time of the year.

All visitors on international flights to Munich land at the Munich International Airport. The airport is located not too far from downtown Munich and although it receives large amounts of passengers daily, it is organized and efficient. The airport has two terminals and in between the terminals is a central area that offers passenger services and tourist information. The central area also has restaurants, bars, shops, and currency exchange services, which are open 24 hours a day. The airport has its own train station just a short walk from the terminals.

Getting Around Munich

Munich's public transportation system is efficient and easy to use. Visitors arriving on Munich flights can get to the city center by train or by bus. The airport S-Bahn rail link trains S1 and S8 leave from the airport's own train station at ten-minute intervals. The Lufthansa Airport bus leaves from the airport to the city frequently throughout the day.

Inside Munich the public transport system is based on different zones, and most tourist attractions are inside the inner zone. The same tickets can be used for the metro (U-Bahn), local trains (S-Bahn), buses, and trams. The downtown area is also very easy to explore by foot.
