Munich Airport Transport Information

When arriving in Munich by plane, the airport provides different possibilities to get into the center.

Probably the easiest way is taking one of the two suburban trains.

S1 – to/from Munich East Station

Suburban line 1 travels from the airport via Munich central station and Marienplatz to Munich east station and back.  At the central station which is a 45 minutes drive away from the airport, there are connections to other main lines and regional trains.

You will need a ticket, valid for the entire network of the Munich public transport system. Price is 10.80 Euro per person one way. Cheaper offers such as partner tickets exist.

S8 – to/from Herrsching

Suburban line 8 goes from the airport via east station, Marienplatz and central station to the western parts of the city and ends in Herrsching. Reaching Munich east station in about 33 minutes, you can easily connect to other main lines, regional trains, underground lines and busses.


The Lufthansa Airport Bus also takes you to the bus stops at Munich central station and to Munich North (Schwabing). There you will find connections for the S-Bahn, U-Bahn, train, and taxi. This Airport bus will provide pick up/drop off directly in front of the terminals, offers luggage service, beverages on board (only May – October) and departs every 20 minutes in each direction. To save money, it is recommended to book a return ticket.
