Getting from Munich Airport to city center?

We will be flying in from Brussels and I was wondering if there is a more affordable way to get to the central station other than a taxi. Thanks.

Take Sbahns, S1 or S8. Each take about 40 minutes (similar to a cab). They leave alternately every ten minutes. They cost 8.50 euros per person or 18 euros for Partner-Day Ticket which will work for 2-5 people. The day ticket will likewise meet any further travel needs that day on the extensive Munich transportation system. Great deal.

Do you want to go to the central station because you stay close to it or just to catch a train. In the latter case you could by ticket directly from Munich airport station or use a train pass. Depends a lot on your destination.

Single ticket is EUR 8,80.

Partner day ticket is EUR 18,00. This ticket is valid for 2-5 persons traveling together and good till 6am of the next day.

Both tickets are good to reach any place in Munich. You can use S-Bahn, regional trains, U-Bahn (metro), trams and buses. Whatever combination you need to reach your final destination.

when you come through arrivals at munich airport ,you will see an escalator to your right,take that and purchase your tickets at the counter dont waste time trying to figure out the machines,depending on how many of you are there ask at the counter for the best deal ,it cost me 42.50euro for 11 people 2groups of 5 and 1 single ,if there is just 2 people might as well get single tickets for 8.80 each ,s- bahn 1 or 8 will take you to hauptbahnhoff (central station),40 min journey ,every 10 mins so no panic

We preferred the Lufthansa bus to the Hauptbahnof. Easier with luggage.
