Munich transportation

Two questions: 1.- Do I have to buy two tickets when I arrive at the Munich airport; one to go to Marienplatz and another to reach my hotel at the east side of Munich? 1.- How do I go from the Achat Hotel (two blocks from Matchlfinger Strasse U station) to Nymphemburg Castle, which is directly North of the hotel? If there were a helicopter probably will take me 2 minutes. But I think the metro route is more complicated. I believe only a Munich resident can answer this one. Thanks a lot again, Jay

No, the Airport-City-Day-Ticket that you purchase at the Airport is good for all day for the entire network.

1.- How do I go from the Achat Hotel (two blocks from Matchlfinger Strasse U station) to Nymphemburg Castle, which is directly North of the hotel?

Take the number 51 bus from Machtlfinger Str to Hirschhartenallee. Almost a strait line. Walk from there.

For any questions like that use the MVV Journey Planner.

You should buy an entire-network day pass at the airport for 13 EUR, then you are good until the wee hours of the morning the next day. If you buy just the airport to Munich ticket, it will cost 11.60 EUR and then you will have to buy another ticket for 2.90 EUR to get to the Nymphenburg Palace. I believe your hotel is southwest of Munich city center.

If there are more than 1 of you, the entire-network group day ticket for 24.30 EUR will cover up to 5 people traveling together.

MVV has a free app that was invaluable for our visit last month. We used to plan routes, find the next train time, etc. Enjoy your stay!

We will be in Munich in a couple weeks and already downloaded the MVV app. Thanks for the tip!! Is there something similar for Berlin?

I can't add anything to what's been posted here, but when we were in Munich it was amazing how easy it was to get from point A to point B. Just don't forget to validate your ticket before you board the train!

For Berlin it is the VBB Verkehrsverbund Berlin-Brandenburg which also have an app, the "VBB Bus and Train" app.
