Munich is one of the richest cities in Germany, a famous industrial area. Famous for Oktoberfest this city is much more than that. Munich is also the third-largest city in Germany, after Berlin and Hamburg, and the 12th-largest city in the European Union. Free tour walking? Book here!
HOW TO GET THERE:
The airport is near the center, easily reachable by train for only 40min (Line S8) and with a frequency of 15min. Another way to get downtown is Leo Express with € 2.50 in 30min.
Tickets are never very cheap if taken with time for a weekend can cost about € 80, another option is to arrive by bus with Flixbus. Tickets from Austria, like from Salzburg or from Germany itself, can only cost 10 €. Some examples:
Nuremberg– Munich= starting from 10€, duration 2h
Frankfurt – Munich = starting from 16€, duration 6h
Stuttgart – Munich = starting from 9€, duration 2.30h
Vienna – Munich = starting from 20€, duration 6h
Salzburg – Munich = starting from 8€, duration 2h
Linz – Munich = starting from 24€, duration 4h
Even by train, you can reach Munich, the prices are not as cheap as on the bus but it is still a good option. The Bavaria region has always been an area full of castles, lakes, and beautiful tourist villages to visit. In this post, we will stop for 2 days in Munich.
