Trains to Munich

Whether travelers need to reach Munich from Berlin, Paris, Frankfurt, or Milan, taking the train is always a good option. Direct services run to Munich's Hauptbahnhof from all of these major cities and plenty of other popular destinations. And thanks to Munich's excellent transport network, transferring from trains to accommodation is rarely a problem.

Which is the main train station in Munich?

There's only one major arrival point for trains to Munich. All trains arrive at Munich Hauptbahnhof, which can be found around one mile west of the old city center. Arrivals will find a range of stores and places to grab a bite to eat at the station, and they can transfer directly to the Munich U-Bahn (subway) to make onward connections.

Which train companies offer trains to Munich?

Most trains into Munich Hauptbahnhof are operated by Deutsche Bahn (DB), the German national carrier. Services from Austria may be provided by OBB, while Trenitalia runs services from Italy. Those coming from France or the UK may need to take a combination of SNCF, Eurostar, and DB trains.

Why travel by train to Munich?

There are many reasons to choose train travel when visiting Munich. Firstly, journey times from many popular cities are relatively short. It won't take long to reach Munich from Vienna, Berlin, Frankfurt am Main, or Salzburg. Trips from Zurich or Milan won't take that long, either. Most services are reliable and comfortable as well, while many offer stunning views of the Rhine or Alps along the way. Taking the train is simply convenient. Trains arrive into Munich Hauptbahnhof, placing arrivals almost at the heart of the city. There's no need for time-consuming airport transfers. Instead, sightseeing can begin straight away.

Before you travel to Munich by train - good to know!

Getting around Munich should be easy, but visitors can make things even simpler by getting hold of an MVV Travel Card. This provides unlimited travel on Munich's U-Bahn, S-Bahn, trams, and buses for a set period. Alternatively, a CityTourCard mixes cut-price transport with discounted admission to major attractions. Don't feel restricted to tourist traps: Munich has much more to offer. Visitors can relax in beer gardens beside the River Isar and enjoy the famous local brews, enjoy an artistic feast at the Pinakothek, and stroll down Kaufingerstraße, Munich's most exclusive shopping destination. In any case, there's a lot to see and do in Bavaria's capital.
