Catching the train from London to Munich is simple, but there are no direct train routes between the two cities. The fastest daily routes involves two changes (in Brussels and Frankfurt) and takes between 9 hours and 9 hours 30 minutes. Trains from London to Munich are operated by a combination of Eurostar from London to Brussels, and Deutsche Bahn, from Brussels to various German destinations. The earliest trains leave London at 6:50 a.m. and the final departure (an overnight train) leaves at 7:30 p.m. There is only one departure on Sundays, but at least 5 every other day.
Return trains from Munich to London are also available.
All services between London and Munich depart from London St Pancras station, the terminus for all Eurostar trains. The best option To reach St Pancras will usually be catching a Tube. Take the Northern, Piccadilly, Victoria, Hammersmith and City, Circle or Metropolitan lines to Kings Cross. Alternatively, you can take trains from suburbs like Borehamwood, or hop on buses like the 73, 476 or 10 from various central districts. The Tube runs until 12:30 a.m., so should be convenient for all trains to Munich.
Munich is one of Europe's great historical destinations. It boasts gorgeous medieval architecture (such as the Michaelskirche and the Alter Hof), huge riverside beer gardens, the green spaces of the beautiful Tiergarten and the sporting excitement of watching Bayern Munich. All trains from London arrive at the city's Hauptbahnhof. Centrally located, the Hauptbahnhof is a 10 minute Metro ride away from most central sights and hotels. The Metro runs until 1:00 a.m. every night, so it should be available whenever your train arrives. There are also night buses for inconvenient arrival times, and a taxi rank right outside the station.
