General Remarks on Munich Transportation System

NOTE: ALL Tickets need to be validated at the beginning of your first journay of the trip. If you buy them, put them in one of the validation station at each underground entrance or in the bus/tram

There are different types of tickets: Single Tickets (called "Einzelfahrkarte"), Stripe Tickets (called "Streifenkarte") and Day Tickets (called "Tageskarte"). The rules how to use these different tickets are rather complicated.

Staying as a tourist in Munich Day Tickets are the best option. They are uncomplicated and mostly cheaper than Single or Stripe Tickets. These tickets allow for unlimited travel on all U-Bahn, S-Bahn trains, trams and buses from the time validated until 6:00 am the next day, 3 Day Tickets from the time validated until 6:00 am the fourth day.

You need to choose between different types of Day Tickets:

- Travelling alone: Single Tageskarte (Single Day Ticket)
- Groups from 2 - 5: Gruppen Tageskarte (Group Day Ticket)

These are available for 1 or 3 days.

If you arrive in the city centre on friday and stay until sunday a 3 day "Innenraum" ticket would be cheapest.

If you arrive at the airport and depart from the airport, you will need additional "Außenraum" tickets for the day of arrival and departure and use "Innenraum" tickets for all days (incl. arrival and departure day! This is cheapest, honestly ;).
