Weekends 2. to 26. August 2013, S-Bahn replaced by buses

Map of Munich public transport lines: http://tinyurl.com/munich-metro2013

***

When:

between 2. to 26. August 2013, every weekend

from Friday 10:45pm to Monday 4:45am

***

Where:

All stations in the city between Ostbahnhof and Hirschgarten:

- Ostbahnhof

- Rosenheimer Platz

- Isartor

- Marienplatz

- Karlsplatz

- Hauptbahnhof

- Hackerbrücke

- Donnersberger Brücke

- Hirschgarten

***

What:

Replacement buses will run every 3 minutes in the city, calling at all the affected stations. Just follow the crowds and you will find the bus stop.

***

Why:

To replace rail tracks, bring the S-Bahn stations' fire safety systems up-to-date and build lifts and a guidance system for the blind at Donnerberger Brücke.

***

What to do if you come from/travel to the airport?

Take either:

.

- the S8 to Ostbahnhof, or

.

- the S1 to Hauptbahnhof (= central train station), this S-Bahn line will run to Hauptbahnhof and then turn back to the airport/Freising. If travelling to the airport, sit in the rear wagons, those are the only ones that go to the airport.

.

and then change to the U-Bahn system, or to the replacement buses.

.

Plan in a safety margin of an extra 20 minutes when travelling to the airport.

Can someone confirm that this August weekend closure is still planned? Was planning on taking the train from airport to Marienplatz on August 10 (Saturday). However, with the added complication of the closure and coming off an international flight, we may just take a taxi.

Yes, it will take place as planned, see here: s-bahn-muenchen.de/s_muenchen/view/mdb/s_mue…

You know, it would be cheaper to take the S-Bahn train from the airport to Ostbahnhof (20.40€ for an Partner-Airport-City-Day-Ticket, or 11.20 for a ticket for a single person), and there to take a taxi to Marienplatz (ca. 15€), there is a taxi rank right in front of Ostbahnhof. This would cost you in total around 35€ (if you are alone: 26€) and you would still get to use the public transport ticket the rest of the day. A taxi from the airport to Marienplatz would cost you around 65€.
