Munich Airport Transfer to hotel near Marianplatz

There is a big group of us going to Munich on Thursday 28th June to Sunday 1st July, arriving around 10am, flying back around midday.

There will be 10 of us coming in and 12 of us going back.

What's the best way to get from the Airport to the hotel near Marianplatz ?

I have been quoted €300 for a return coach for upto 16 people and the travel time is around 30 minutes.

Is this a good price ? Or is there a better way ?

Madness!

Use the S-bahn - the S1 or S8 will take you from the airport to Marienplatz.

At the airport, buy 2 Airport-City-Day tickets @ €19.60 each. Each ticket covers 5 adults all day long on the Munich network.

On the way back, buy 3 Partner-Day tickets. They are the same as the Airport-City-Day ticket, except you must validate them before your journey.

"I have been quoted €300 for a return coach for upto 16 people and the travel time is around 30 minutes."

I'm confused. Certainly the price is interestingly high. But 30 minutes seems unlikely unless at midnight on a Sunday.

What is the hotel?

We used the trains specified above and had NO problems. The only issue we had (and doesn't sound like it's a problem for you) was our flight left out very early and the U-bahn was not running that early (4:00 a.m) A taxi to the Marienplatz station to get on the S Bahn took us right back out to the airport.

Does that same train go to the Hauptbahnhoff as well? If not, what is the best way to get to that part of the city? thanks!

Both S-Bahn lines (S1 and S8) serving the airport serve also the Hauptbahnhof and Marienplatz. They use however different routes into the city. To Hauptbahnhof travel time is nearly identical. To Marienplatz the S8 is faster.

Thank you. Just wondering though: is it possible to walk between Marienplatz and Hauptbanhoff? if so, how long of a walk would it be?

Yes. 15 - 20 minutes. Approx. half of the route is a pedestrian zone.
