Located in the south of Bavaria on the banks of River Isar, Munich is a cosmopolitan playground. From its fashionable boutiques to its Mediterranean-style cafes, you'll be wowed at every turn. When you land at Franz Josef Strauss International Airport (MUC) in Germany, which is also known as Munich International Airport, you'll immediately feel the charm and energy of Munich. It's no wonder cheap Munich flights are a sought-after commodity.
Transportation from MUC
If you stay at any one of the hotels near Franz Josef Strauss International Airport, you'll be about 18 miles northeast of the city, and your hotel will probably offer shuttle service to and from the airport. If you decide to stay downtown, there are many lodging choices. You can arrange a rental car in Terminal 1 or head to the taxi stands outside Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. Because it's quick and affordable, the train is a very popular option with travelers, with two S-Bahn lines (S1 and S8) leaving every ten minutes from the airport to the city; simply buy tickets at the counter or vending machine and go to the boarding area, which is just steps from Terminal 1 and 2. The bus station, which is in front of the Central Area of the airport, features numerous bus routes leading to Munich and surrounding cities. Another option is to book a limo service.
After you fly to Munich, you'll probably be ready to explore the city immediately. Start your trip at the Englischer Garten or the Residenz (the former residence of Bavaria's Wittelsbach rulers). When you need to refuel, don't miss the chance to try Bavarian cuisine like breakfast sausages, pretzels, and all those soups. Be sure order a beer along with the meal. With so much to do and see, start planning your trip early. Travelocity can help you save on vacation packages to Munich.
