Transfer from platform 1 to 14 Munich HBF station

Can anybody tell me how far would be platform 14 from 1 at Munich HBF station. I have a suitcase and a laptop. I would have 10 min change over time. Will this be sufficient

Track 1 is on of the 4 S-Bahn tracks in the underground part of the main train station. While track 14 is in the main platform hall (tracks 11 - 26). Can be done in 10 minutes. But why don't you take just an earlier S-Bahn? DB timetable gives by default the tightest possible connection.

No, that is not the lowest fare. If you use the Bayern ticket (valid from 9am weekdays, any time weekend), you can travel for only € 22 return (one person)

I don't understand what you mean by "taken a connection" for the S-Bahn. S-Bahn is a city train service - you buy your ticket and get on a train. Tickets aren't for a particular departure, so you don't have to choose the particular S-Bahn train you will take when you buy your ticket.

If you buy a single ride ticket, you validate it and get on the next train.

If you buy a day ticket, Bayern ticket or some other pass, you validate it and then can get on any trains in the system within the time period of validation (1 day, 1 week, etc)

So, you aren't tied to the 17 minute connection - you could just take an earlier S-Bahn if you like.
