Munich Train Logistics - easy question!

We are new to European train travel and have an 8:15 a.m. train leaving Munich at 8:17 Tuesday morning. How early should we arrive at the station? We don't want to feel rushed and need to buy food for the trip. Thank you.

Provided you have seats reserved, ten minutes (not including time needed for buying food) is enough time to find your car and seats. Else you should be there when the train will be ready for boarding, that's approx. 20 minutes before departure. Look up the position of your car at the "Wagenreihungsplan" or - more convenient - in the DB App. Are you taking RJ 111 to Austria?

Don't worry about the construction work. Presently, they are taking down the main building, but inside the station almost everything is normal. Access is through the north and south entrances only.

Thank you for all three responses - very helpful! RJ 111 is our train! We are continuing on to Slovenia.
