How to get here :
100 m from Munich’s main train station (Hauptbahnhof) the Euro Youth Hotel couldn’t be easier to find.
Leave the train station via the exit next to platform 11, turn left onto Bayerstrasse and then take the first right into Senefelderstrasse.
Munich's Hauptbahnhof is the centre of the local, regional and long distance rail services, so you couldn't be more conveniently located for getting to and from Munich, getting around Munich or using Munich as a base for day trips.
From Munich airport to the Station (Hauptbahnhof):
By S-Bahn (local train):
From Munich Airport (Franz Josef Strauss), take the S1 or S8 train (whichever is the first to leave) to the Hauptbahnhof (main station).
The trip will take about 40 mins.
The S-train leaves downstairs from the 'Zentralbereich' (central area) between Terminals 1 and 2. Tickets are available from the machines on the ground floor and also at the Terminal 2 end of the platform. If the ticket fits in the blue stamping machine you must stamp it. If it comes from a newer machine it should have a date and time on it in which case it won’t fit in the slot and you don’t need to stamp it.
The trains run from early early morning to late and usually every 10 minutes. However you can also check train times here:
https://www.mvg.de/ or on google maps.
Ticket prices: It is usually best to get a day pass if you are going to make any other journeys on the day of arrival. At the time of writing (2022) a day pass for zones M-5 (necessary for airport) costs €13,70 for one adult OR €25,70 for up to 5 adults. A single (not a day ticket) for one adult costs €12,30. Kids under 6 travel for free, kids aged 6-14 pay €1,70 for a single, €3,30 for a day pass.
A Taxi would cost around € 90. (!!!) We can let you know of at least 1000 better ways to spend that money.
By Bus :
Another option is to take the ‘Lufthansa Bus’. At the time of writing one way tickets cost €11 for an adult, €5,50 for 6-14 year olds and €25 for a family (2 adults and up to 3 kids), under 6’s are free. Return tickets are also available: Adults €17,50, 6-14 year olds €11, under 6’s free.
The buses leave outside Terminal 2 (Lufthansa plus friends) and drop you off at the Hauptbahnhof (see below). Journey time is similar to the train at about 45 mins.
If you want to book tickets ahead of time (for a minimal reduction and a guaranteed seat) you can do so here lufthansa bus or you can just turn up and pay the driver.
From the Station (Hauptbahnhof) to the Hostel:
From the S-Bahn platform or the bus stop at the Hauptbahnhof head for the main hall of the train station (DB/Fernzüge) and then take the exit next to platform 11, turn left onto Bayerstrasse and then take the first right into Senefelderstrasse. The Euro Youth Hostel is about half way down this street on the left.
That's it, you've made it. Time now to drop your bags, unwind, let our staff tell you everything you need to know about the city and the hostel and maybe grab a beer or some breakfast.
Memmingen Airport, is about 110km (70 miles) from Munich. However Ryanair do offer some incredible bargains so who’s complaining?
By Bus: From Memmingen Airport you can take the Allgau Express bus (see www.allgaeu-airport-express.de for prices and current timetables). The bus ride is very comfortable and about 90 minutes. It will drop you off at the Main Station (Hauptbahnhof) from where you can follow the instructions at the bottom of the page. Ticket prices: If you book the tickets online in advance the single ticket price is around €15, kids 3-12 years €8. If you pay on the bus it is €20 / €10.
Alternatively, at the time of writing Flixbus offer one service per day with prices from €10 per adult. So maybe worth comparing.
By Train: If there are more than 3 of you, you might want to consider travelling via train. A BAYERN TICKET costs €26 for one person and €8 for each additional person up to 5 adults. Kids up to 15 can travel with their parents for free. The BAYERN ticket is valid on the bus (number 2) from Memmingen Airport to Memmingen Station, on the train to Munich and then also on the Munich transport system until 3am the next day. Indeed if you arrive early enough, you might want to make use of it on a day trip (eg to Salzburg or the Neuschwanstein castle). It is valid throughout Bavaria from 9am-3am on weekdays and anytime at the weekend.
PLEASE NOTE : it is not valid on the EC, ICE and RJ trains (RE, RB, ALX, S are all ok).
The bus / train journey if you have luck with the connection will take just over 2 hours to Munich Main Station (Hauptbahnhof). From there please follow the instructions below.
From Munich Train Station : At the Hauptbahnhof head for the main hall of the train station (DB/Fernzüge) and then take the exit next to platform 11, turn left onto Bayerstrasse and then take the first right into Senefelderstrasse. The Euro Youth Hostel is about half way down this street on the left.
That's it, you've made it. Time now to drop your bags, unwind, let our staff tell you everything you need to know about the city and the hostel and maybe grab a well deserved beer or some breakfast.
By Public transport:
The ZOB is conveniently located at the S-Bahn (local train) stop ‘Hackerbrücke’.
From here it is one stop on the s-bahn to the Hauptbahnhof (main station)…
From the S-Bahn platform head for the main hall of the train station (DB/Fernzüge) and then take the exit next to platform 11, turn left onto Bayerstrasse and then take the first right into Senefelderstrasse. The Euro Youth Hostel is about half way down this street on the left.
As it is only one stop a single trip (Kurzstrecke/short journey) costs €1,80. Or if you're going out again later you could get a day ticket: for the central zones the price would be €8,20 for one person or €15,60 for 2 to 5 people.
If you don't have too much luggage you can also walk to the hostel in about 10 to 15 minutes. Exit the ZOB and walk across the Hackerbrücke (the 19th Century Iron bridge is a sight in itself). As you cross the numerous train tracks you can see the Hauptbahnhof (main train station) to your left and behind that the towers of Munich's most famous landmark the Frauenkirche. After the bridge the road veers right and a walkway opens up to the left. Follow the walkway until you come to a main road (Bayerstrasse) and here turn left. The Senefelderstrasse (where we are) is the 6th street on the right hand side (about 900m). We are number 5 about 100 m down the Senefelderstr on the left hand side.
That's it, you've made it. Time now to drop your bags, unwind, let our staff tell you everything you need to know about the city and the hostel and maybe grab a beer... or some breakfast.
We'll assume you're going to use your satnav or google maps to find your way here. (Although please only use google maps if you're offline or have an EU data package).
Once here the best option to park the car is in the parking lot directly opposite the hostel. 'Hauptbahnhof Süd'.
We have a deal with that car park which will allow you to park your car for €14 per 24 hours. This is around half price. To take advantage of this please just get the reception to stamp your parking ticket before departure.
We cannot reserve these parking spots, but it is a big parking lot and places are available 99 % of the time. This offer unfortunately doesn't apply during the Oktoberfest and the 3 days thereafter.
Street parking is free from 11pm to 9 am and on Sundays.
