Munich City Transportation

Munich City TransportationThe heart of Munich is easily explored on foot. We'll outline the options for getting further afield.


The heart of Munich is an easy area for pedestrians. The train station and the Marienplatz are .6 miles(1km) away from one another. If you prefer to venture away from the traditional tourist spots, however, public transportation is recommended.

S-Bahn and U-Bahn

S-Bahn lines serve the suburbs (think of the "s" in suburb) and are accessible via Eurail, InterRail and German railpasses. U-Bahn lines are concentrated downtown (think "u" for urban) and do not run in conjunction with rail passes.

Short-trip: €2.40

10-trip ticket for use by multiple people: €10

One-day: €5.20

One-day up to five adults and a dog: €9.40
