Hello We are staying at the Cortina Hotel in Munich. I have read that we can catch the S1 or S8 train form the airport. Do we need to then catch a bus to the hotel? If so which number do we need?

Thanks

Hi,

you can take either S1 or S8 to Marienplatz (Mary's Place). Your hotel is only a stone's throw away.

As ticket the best option is the partner - day - ticket or 3 - day - ticket. This allows you to travel through the entire MVV network, which includes busses, trains and undergrounds in Munich and surrounding.

S8 (faster) or S1 to Isartor station. From there it's a 500 m walk.

Alabada,

sorry I have to contradict here. For the Cortiina Hotel, Marienplatz is definitely the station to go.

It is correct that the S1 is slower than the S8, you will still arrive before, hence it makes sense just to take the next train.

Re the 3 day ticket: Unfortunately this is only available for the city of Munich. Therefore you should buy a day ticket when you arrive from the airport. For the rest of your stay you need to calculate, whether you had better buy a 3 day ticket and top up when you go somewhere outside Munich, or whether you buy individual day tickets for the entire network.

I just wanted to add: Don't wait for any particular S-Bahn. Take the next one that's ready to leave, either S1 or S8, they both go to Marienplatz (or Isartor), and it makes no sense to wait ten minutes for the next S-Bahn just because it would take about 5 minutes less to get to your stop.
