From the airport

Munich's Franz Josef Strauss Flughafen airport is connected to the Hauptbahnhof (the main train station) by S-Bahn 1 or 2. To reach central Munich using the S-Bahn, follow the S-Bahn signs to the commuter rail station in Munchen Airport Center. Tickets can be bought from vending machines or a ticket counter. The main stops include the Hauptbahnhof and the Marienplatz. The journey takes about 40 minutes, depending on the train and where you plan to get off.


Lufthansa buses go from the airport to Hauptbahnhof, Munich's main train station every 20 minutes throughout the day. These are however more expensive and less convenient than taking the train. A taxi ride into central Munich is expensive and can take 35 minutes or more, easily costing € 60.
