3. Trip Tips

IMPORTANT! If you buy a ticket at a vending machine at one of the train stations, you will need to validate your ticket by sticking it into one of the small blue boxes before boarding the train (it stamps the date and the time on the ticket). Be careful to put it in with the correct end, where it says „Hier Entwerten“. Only exception: there are new vending machines, which allow you to choose a date on which the ticket should be valid. Note: The public transport system in Munich is divided into 4 zones.

Zone 1: inner city
Zones 1+2: Munich XXL
Zones 2+3+4: outer city
Zones 1+2+3+4: entire network

For travelling in the inner city, you need a ticket for Zone 1.
For the airport, you need a ticket for the entire network (all 4 zones).
