Airport transfer

Arriving into Munich by train puts you in the center of the city at the main train station. The station is also well connected by the U-Bahn, S-Bahn, trams and regional trains if you need to continue your journey. If arriving by plane, the S-bahn is the easiest way into the city, S1 and S8.

Public transportation

Munich's public transport network is very efficient. A day pass for the inner network costs €6.60, while a three-day ticket costs €16.50. You must validate your ticket -- look for the little machine on the train platform or in the tram/bus.

Tipping is not obligatory but it is very common to leave a tip if you enjoyed your meal and service. 5-10% of the bill is a common amount for a gratuity.

Munich is a very safe and traveller friendly city. Do be smart about your belongings though.
