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).
