Hotel location for last night in Munich

Will be coming into Munich on the 1st from Vienna. Our flight is at 11 a.m. on January 2nd.

Which location in Munich would be a good choice for using public transportation to the airport next morning? Do we need 2 or 3 hours at the airport to go through security? I remember Frankfurt being a nightmare one year.

Ginger -Try the Hilton at Munich airport

There are also a couple of hotels not far from Munich airport as well that are excellent using public transport for quick access to airport and city center. The two hotels on links below are very good.

RJean, thank you so much. I will check into them. Do you think it's better to just stay up at the airport on the last night? Less hassles?

From any centrally located hotel it should be easy enough to get to the airport by public transport in time for an 11 a.m. flight. I would try to be there around 8 a.m. myself and give myself plenty of time. Just get a hotel near a station - Hauptbahnhof or Marientplatz are both good.

In Munich, the Munich City Centre Holiday Inn has direct access underground to the Rosenheimer Platz S-Bahn station. The S-8 to Munich airport goes every 20 minutes at 2, 22, 42 past the hour and takes 33 to 35 minutes. Hotel has a great breakfast.

If it is a flight to the US, be at the airport by 8 am. That means taking the 7:22 S-Bahn.

I agree with Sam, staying near Ostbahnhof or Rosenheimplatz makes it easy to get to the airport when you leave. Rosenheimerplatz has several hotels in the area (Holiday Inn, Hilton, Novotel, and a little walk away Motel One Deutsches Museum). Near Ostbahnhof there is Design Hotel Stadt Rosenheim and a little walk away two more Motel Ones, Residence Inn, and a Courtyard by Marriott.

I do this every time I'm in Munich rather than stay near the airport.

Thanks everyone. I ended up getting us room in the centre so we would have better options for dinner.

Looks like we could use The Airport-City-Day-Ticket for 24.30 euros to get to the airport? Or is it only from the airport for the day traveling around Munich?

The Airport/City Day Ticket is an all-day pass for the entire MVV network. You can use it from the airport to downtown, from downtown to the airport, or just for traveling around town all day. A lot of people use it to get into town from the airport and then to get around town for the rest of the day.

I say we are in the center, but I’m not too sure if this is a good location for the airport. It seemed that way on the map, but I’m not that familiar with Munich. I can always cancel the reservation. We needed accommodations with at least one kitchenette as there is a member who has severe dietary restrictions.

Hotel
Aparthotel Adagio Muenchen City (Just 1,000 feet from Munich Central Station Schwanthalerstr) 61, Ludwigsvorstadt, Munich.

So we could buy the same day pass and use it to get to the airport? I think it was 24.50 E

Ginger you are at least 52 minutes from airport by train from the hotel. Total distance is 24 miles.

RJean, that sounds like a bit much for the morning before flight, doesn't it? I might change that reservation to something closer. I do need accommodations for someone with a kitchenette, though.

I usually stay in Freising the night before leaving the Munich Airport. There is a 17 minute bus service or a 13 train service from the Freising to the Airport. For one night, I prefer Freising over Munich.

Next year we are considering an early morning flight out. I have never stayed at the Airport Hilton but it gets good reviews here. I might just stay there and catch a round trip ride into/from Freising or Munich for my evening meal. Dealing with transportation at night rather than early the next morning does not sound bad. Plus coming into the area on a Bayern Ticket I can continue to use it for my evening trips.

Ostbahnhof and Rosenheimer Platz have a time advantage over the Hauptbahnhof as the S1 takes time to split the train at Neufahrn.
