I think so. My recollection is that S-bahn platforms are at a lower level and there is a long line of platforms at a higher level..

Suggestion for taxi booking (4 Replies)
I am reaching Munich Hauptbahnhof, Germany by 00:30 am from India. I need to reach Max Planck Institut für Astrophysik, Karl-Schwarzschild-Straße, Garching bei München, Germany. Since it is late night, I plan to take a taxi from Munich Hauptbahnhof (roughly 20 kms). I intend to ask the following: 1. Approximately how much will be the charges for an economical ride (single traveller)? 2. What is the best way to book the taxi in advance (preferably online) and being economical?

1. Should come at aprox 45 EUR. 2. No need to book anything. There are plenty of taxis waiting at the train station day and night. You simply go to the official taxi stand and hop into the first one in line.
