Getting to and from Munich Airport (MUC)

Getting To Munich Airport

Munich’s airport is located just 28.5 km or 17.7 miles northeast of Bavaria’s capital. Close to the airport is the historic town of Freising, from where passengers can board a train to other parts of Bavaria. It is even possible to get by train from Prague directly to the airport in Munich.

Getting to the airport by Metro Link Train

The airport’s metro train station can be found underground below one of the two passenger terminals. In fact, the airport offers onward travel via two stations: namely the S-Bahn metro rail link, which has one station underneath the central terminal area and the other station is located below the station “Visitors’ Park” (Besucherpark), a popular attraction for people coming to the airport for a day trip or for passengers with time on their hands prior to boarding their flight.

The metro lines S1 and S8 take roughly 45 minutes from central Munich’s train station (Hauptbahnhof) to get to the airport.

Getting to the airport by Bus or Coach

For passengers staying in airport hotels there are the hotels’ own shuttle services, which drop off passengers with a reservation at a designated area by the arrivals and departure levels at Terminal 1 and 2. The Lufthansa shuttle bus collects passengers from Munich’s city centre; this service runs every twenty minutes between the hours of 5.10 am and 7.50 pm. The bus stops at Nordfriedhof’s subway station as well as the main train station. There are also a large number of city bus services running between central Munich and the airport.

A convenient bus service runs between Freising station and the airport (via MVV line 635). Other MVV lines stop at Erding and Markt Schwaben).

It takes just 20 minutes to reach the airport permitting passengers from Munich city centre and from cities like Nuremberg or Regensburg to use Munich Airport.

Getting to the airport by Car

The Free State of Bavaria is well connected to all main line train destinations across Germany. The Bavarian State Road St 2584 is linked with motorway A92 (exit 6 is for the airport). The ring road A99 also offers airport connections and is well sign-posted. Reaching Visitors’ Park is equally convenient. Motorists should take the A92 and follow the signs to the Nordallee exit, from where they can get directly to the P51 parking lot and the P53 bus stop.

Bavarian State Road 2580 provides access from the east via exit 8 (Freising Ost). The ST 2580 connects to the St. 2584 and the eastern access to the airport.

Visitors can also get to the airport by taking the B 11 or B 13 road (Bundesstrasse = B road) from the Mittlerer Ring in Munich and then connecting to the A 92, following the route described above.

Passengers travelling from Deggendorf, Dingolfing, Landshut and Passau should take the A 92 (using the Erding exit) or the A 92 (Freising-Mitte exit) from Passau travelling via the B388 or the A 94 Autobahn.

Visitors from other parts of Bavaria, from cities like Nuremberg or Regensburg for example, have direct airport connections via the A 9 motorway, which links to the A 92 (leaving the motorway after the Neufahrn interchange for the Munich Airport exit). From Augsburg motorists should travel via the A 8 and the A 99; then access the A 92 motorway and head from there to the airport exit.
