Munich is the capital and largest city in the German state of Bavaria, and is Germany’s 3rd largest city overall.

Globally renowned for being a European centre of arts, music and culture, Munich is a stunning city, filled with architectural wonder and containing more museums, libraries, universities and government buildings than any other city in Germany.

The city has an excellent underground train system which makes navigating to the local attractions far easier than driving around the city, and despite not being traditionally thought of as a ‘tourist-driven’ city, millions of foreign visitors make the trip to Munich every year.

Munich is also well-known for its sporting connections, and is a previous host of the Summer Olympic Games, as well as being home to one of the world’s largest and most successful soccer clubs in Bayern Munich.

Arriving Munich Airport

Munich Airport is the international airport serving the city of Munich, Germany’s capital city. It is the worlds 14th busiest airport and is located around 28km from downtown Munich.

Therefore, taxi cabs from the airport to the city centre can be expected to cost you around $32-$38 to undertake the journey.

Check in, security, baggage collection and car rental processes all tend to move swiftly and efficiently, as you would expect, and the airport staff are helpful, yet efficient, in their demeanour.

Because of this, you will not be waiting around in the airport for too long upon landing, despite the high volume of pedestrian traffic passing through the terminals.

The airport offers a wide array of facilities for shopping and dining opportunities and also has a specially built visitors centre to while away your time either before or after your flight.

Driving In Munich

As you would expect, Munich’s roads and major networks are in incredibly good condition, with simple to navigate and well-signed roads.

Munich city centre is not actually that large, and traffic levels can be surprisingly low, providing that you avoid the main roads during peak-traffic hours.

The public transport system is also very advanced, with good bus, train and taxi cab availability throughout the day. The underground train system is particularly well-run and efficient.

Car parking in the city centre can be a little difficult sometimes, and we recommend you use the excellent underground train system to travel to the various local attractions.
