I understand there is TWO TRAINS to choose from to go to the city centre from Munich airport.
Which one is the fastest, cheapest, best to take? (We arrive in the winter, morning of December the 24th).
We will arrive from Toronto and will then only be one afternoon and evening in Munich. The idea is to get to the hotel in the city; rest an hour or two; and then see something of Munich that late afternoon and evening.
Which also makes me wonder in WHICH AREA of Munich's city to stay? We want to see something of the city, and it will be good to be in the old part, but where is it located?
Ideally a fast train to downtown, and then get a hotel easy walking distance at the downtown station where we arrive from the airport, that is also a good area to WALK AROUND and see the old parts. But where to go?
Any help will be greatly appreciated. (We're not young anymore, so a safe and walkable TOURIST LOCATION will be best, as we don't have time to travel more on subways when we're there - only have a few hours for sight-seeing!).
