When is the best time to fly to Munich?

Munich, the capital of Bavaria, is as quaint as it is modern – a beautiful combination of provinciality and progressiveness. Steeped in history, and packed with museums, castles and seasonal festivities, a visit to Munich promises something for everyone. Munich’s high tourist season is during the summer months from June – August with temperatures around 30 degree Celsius. From September – October, Munich hosts the Oktoberfest and several other festivals attracting crowds from all over the world. Accommodation and travel can be quite expensive and hard to find if you have not booked in advance. Winter temperatures dip to minus 25 degrees Celsius, but if you can brave the cold, then the pretty festival lights, famous Christmas markets and freshly covered ski slopes make for an interesting time to visit Munich. From March – May, the city transforms from its lethargic winter mood into a lively spring atmosphere with longer days and fresh blooms making it the best time to visit Munich before the high season starts.

How to get around in Munich?

The most convenient way of getting around in Munich is by public transport which is fast, easy and safe. The MVV operates the rapid suburban trains (S-Bahn), underground or subway (U-Bahn), trams (Strassenbahn) and city buses. Ticket prices are calculated according to zones, with a single trip ticket for 1 zone travel starting at €2.80 EUR. Depending on your itinerary, consider buying the Single Day ticket with a starting fare of €6.60 EUR for inner district travel or the CityTourCard with options to choose from number of days and areas being covered. The card also provides discounted access to several attractions, restaurants, tours, and activities.

Metered taxis are always available but are expensive, with the basic fare starting at €3.70 EUR and an incremental per kilometre rate for every 5 kilometres. If you are staying in the city centre where most of the top attractions are located, you could consider exploring them on foot.

Tips and tricks for visiting Munich

You can Bring Your Own Food – BYOF to many of the biergartens if you buy drinks there. If you are a foodie, be sure to sample the hearty Bavarian fare like bowls brimming with thick stews and plates piled high with sausages and potatoes.

Most museums have free admission on Sundays so try to plan your itinerary keeping that in mind. Avoid jaywalking, littering or walking in bike lanes, as you could be fined. While the entire city is patrolled and safety is a top priority, be aware that during Oktoberfest. it is possible that you may encounter some drunken revelry. You can blend in with the locals and remember to say ‘Bitte’ (please) and ‘Danke’ (thank you).
