Arrival by Public Transport

From England you can go to Paris - Strasbourg, Brussels (Bruxelles) - Cologne (Köln) or Amsterdam where there are direct trains to Munich.

From northern Europe there are many possibilities to go via Hamburg or Berlin, and there is a direct night train from Copenhague (København, Köbenhamn).

From the west or center of Spain, the shortest way is via Bordeaux - Paris, but from the east you might better go via Lyon - Strasbourg.

In Poland, there are direct trains from Warsaw (Warszawa) and Katowice. But from Cracovia (Kraków) / Katowice it may also be interesting for you to first go to Vienna (Wien) - with the inconvenience to have to go from Wien Südbahnhof to Wien Westbahnhof by taxi or tramway (40 minutes).

In the Czech Republik, there are direct trains from Prague (Praha) Hlavní Nádrazí. If you do not mind changing trains, there is another nice journey via Bayrisch Eisenstein and Plattling.

From south-eastern Europe you can go via Vienna (Wien), Graz, Klagenfurt, or Villach where there are direct trains (or at least direct coaches) to Munich.

Indications concerning public transport correspond to our personal knowledge or even experience, but we cannot assume any responsibility for their rightness. When you are reading this page, things may have changed in reality.

For national and international trains, see the online information of the Deutsche Bahn.

For regional, suburban, and city connections see the online information of the Münchner Verkehrsverbund (MVV).
