Munich Questions

I and my wife are arriving in Munich on Aug 4th. We are taking a 7 day river

cruise in Passau on August 5th. I have the following questions, any suggestions

are greatly appreciated:

1. We are staying one night at Tryp Munchen (ery near the Stachus business district). Since we are arriving at 11.00 PM, I am assuming that taxi is the best way to get to the hotel from the airport.

2. Our cruise starts at 7.00 PM. We plan to be in Passau by 5.00 PM. What is the best transportation option from Munich to Passau?

3. If we are spending 3-4 hours in Munich, what are is recommended?

Thanks in advance,

1. There are direct S-Bahn trains from the airport to Karlsplatz (Stachus) until well past midnight.

DB timetable


From: MUC airport

To: M Stachus

Single ticket is EUR 8,80.

Another option would be to use the S-Bahn at 00:02 (or later) and buy a Bavaria Ticket (EUR 27,00) for the 5th August. With this ticket you can also travel to Passau. This is a mini group day ticket covering all regional trains in Bavaria and nearly all other local public transport (Munich: U-Bahn, trams, buses).

Taxi will be quite expensive (EUR 50-60) as Munich aiport is quite distant from Munich.

2. You don't have much options on this.

There are however maintance works on the direct root (school holidays). Thus connections are kind of zig-zag or with buses (at least partly). And of course this will be slower than normal.

From: M Stachus

To: Passau

and select as means of transport "only local transport" if you like to use the Bavaria Ticket.

3. Fetch a walking guide leaflet from the tourist office and explore the old city centre.
