The main airport of Munich is Franz Josef Strauss International Airport 30km (20 mi) to the north-east, close to the city of Freising. It's Germany's second busiest airport and a major hub for Lufthansa and its Star Alliance partner airlines.
Memmingen Airport ) is around 110km (65 mi) west of Munich. However, it is marketed as "Munich West" by Ryanair. Other names include "Allgäu Airport" or "Flughafen Allgäu". There are shuttle buses to Munich with timetables aligned to Ryanair's schedule. One-way tickets are €19.50, or €15 if pre-booked via the internet. The buses arrive (and leave) close to Munich Central Station.
Munich Central Station (Hauptbahnhof or main station) is conveniently located 5min on foot from the historic city centre of Munich in Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt district. To the very heart of Munich at Marienplatz it's two stops on the suburban train (S-Bahn). It is well connected to Munich's dense public transportation network. Munich Central Station has a traveller-friendly infrastructure including several restaurants, shops, a tourist information and a Deutsche Bahn ticket and travel agency office.
Deutsche Bahn uses Munich as one of its main German hubs and offers direct regional and long-distance connections to many German cities. This includes several connections with ICE, TGV, and railjet high-speed trains:
There are also a number of Eurocity connections to Strasbourg, Salzburg, Innsbruck, Vienna, Budapest, Zürich, Verona, Venice, Milan and other international cities.
Furthermore, the night train connections (CityNightLine) can be an inexpensive as well as time saving alternative. Destinations include Amsterdam, Berlin, Budapest, Florence, Hamburg, Ljubljana, Paris, Rome, Venice, Verona, Vienna and Zagreb.
Two additional train stations are located in the west (Munich Pasing) and the east (Munich East (Ostbahnhof)) of Munich. Both stations are connected to the public transportation system and serve as transportation hubs for Deutsche Bahn's regional and long-distance trains.
Munich is well connected to other cities in Germany and Austria by the German autobahn network:
Autobahn A 99 is an autobahn ring around the city, which connects the various autobahns. Munich has two inner ring roads in addition to the A 99: Mittlerer Ring (B 2R) and Altstadtring.
Traffic in Munich can be a challenge at peak times. Therefore, and especially due to the shortage of parking within the greater city centre, you might want to leave the car in a P&R parking deck (see the "Get around" section) in one of Munich's suburbs near an S-Bahn station and use public transport within the city.
Long-distance buses can be an inexpensive possibility to travel to Munich from several neighbouring countries, especially from eastern and southern Europe and the Balkans. Buses arrive at Munich Central Bus Station (ZOB) close to Hackerbrücke suburban train (S-Bahn) station.
