bayern tickets vs MVV tickets

I've read few topics on the issue but I am still a little confused so I apologize for any repeat questions....

- does Bayern ticket cover all transport inside Munich itself or only the outside of Munich?

- Does Bayern ticket include all means of public transport or a specific one only (i.e. bus only, train only etc)

- We will be in Munich for 7 days. We are planning 2-3 day trips and the rest to spend in Munich itself. Do we need to buy Bayern tickets for the Munich days or MVV will suffice?

Thank You!

2. Re: bayern tickets vs MVV tickets

Bayern Ticket and MVV tickets are local public transport tickets. They cover regional trains, S-Bahn, U-Bahn, trams and buses.

Bayern Ticket includes the MVV (and all other such networks in Bavaria). Transport inside Munich is thus covered.

.

Difference in validity times:

- MVV partner day tickets

are valid from the time of validation (stamping) till 6am next day

- Bayern Ticket

is valid

Mo-Fr: from 9am till 3am next day

Sa,Su, public holidays: from midnight till 3am next day

.

Difference in validity area:

- Bayern Ticket

covers all of Bavaria plus the regional trains to stations outside of Bavaria (on the railroads in gray) as shown on this map

bahnland-bayern.de/content-startseite/streck…

- MVV partner day tickets

see the network map (with the tariff zones in light colors)

mvv-muenchen.de/web4archiv/objects/download/…

can be bough for

- the MVV inner district (white zone) (= city of Munich)

- Munich XXL (white + green zones) (Munich and surrounding towns like e.g. Dachau)

- entire MVV netwowrk (all 4 zones) (e.g. necessary to reach Munich Airport)

- the MVV outer district (green + yellow + red zones)

does the MVV partner day ticket cover the train from Munich to Fussen?

No. To Füssen you need a Bayern Ticket.

MVV is the local public transport network of the Greater Munich area. Munich Airport is among the most distant places you can reach on a MVV ticket.

One more question - I have now booked a tour of Erdinger and need to be there at 9:40am (weekday). Per Abalada's explanation Bayern ticket is only valid from 9am. Can I buy a more expensive ticket and travel still to Erdinger and arrive at 9:40am?

Thanks!!

Erdinger is in Erding and thus inside the MVV area.

You need a MVV day ticket for the entire MVV network.

1 person EUR 10,80

2-5 persons EUR 19,60

MVV day tickets have no past 9am on weekdays restriction.

abalada, your replies are very useful. May I ask you two silly question?

1) Is stampping is required for MVV day ticket and Bayner ticket?

2) Is partner ticket for all zone same as Airport-City-day-ticket? (I saw the price is same)

THanks!

Bayern, not Bayner.

It depends on where you buy it - if the ticket has a area where it is written "hier entwerten", then yes, you need to stamp it. If the ticket already has a validity date printed on it, then not. Some ticket machines (DB ones for example) will sell you the ticket already validated for a certain day. Others (many older MVV machines) will just give you a ticket without date which you have to date-stamp when you start using it.

1)

MVV tickets (not just the day tickets): normally yes (see 2))

Bayern Ticket: normally not (see answer of altamiro)

.

2)

basically the same. The only difference is that the Airport-City-day-Ticket is already validated with the date of purchase. Thus no stamping required.

Please note that you must stamp a ticket only once. Otherwise it becomes void.

Here used with a stripe ticket. A ticket I do not recommend for tourists. Rather complicated to use - thus the risk of doing something wrong is high. And the savings compared to single tickets are so small, that if you have a stripe left at the end of the stay you have not saved anything at all. And the MVV day tickets pay anyway from 2 trips per day on.
