Tickets and fares

Single Day Tickets

They can be used for as many trips as you like by S-Bahn, regional train, U-Bahn, bus or tram on one day - until 6 am the following day: just select the area of validity from Inner District (Innenraum), Munich XXL (München XXL), Outer District (Außenraum) or the Entire Network (Gesamtnetz). The children’s day ticket is always valid for the Entire Network. You can buy the tickets from ticket machines, at customer centres and the points of sale within the MVV network area.

Partner Day Tickets

The Partner Day Ticket is valid for up to five adults or 10 children – because any two chil-dren between 6 and 14 years of age count as one adult. Another benefit: on school trips schoolchildren up to 9th grade are counted as children who have not completed their 15th birthday. You can buy the tickets from ticket machines, at customer centres and the points of sale within the MVV network area.

The CityTourCard

Getting around and saving on entrance fees: this is the CityTourCard. This ticket for dis-coverers is available as a day ticket for the Inner District or as a 3-day-ticket for the Inner District or the Entire Network. It includes discounts for more than 30 tourist attractions from theatres to museums, sights to sightseeing trips. The CityTourCard is available as a Single or Partner Ticket (for a group of up to 5 adults or 10 children between 6 and 14 years of age). You can buy the ticket from ticket machines, at customer centres and the points of sale.

IsarCard – Weekly or monthly pass

Our classic: the IsarCard weekly pass. It can be used by other people as well for as many trips as you like within in the selected rings. Children aged between 6 and 14 may travel on the same ticket free of charge Mondays to Fridays after 9 am and at any other time on non-working days. You may bring along as many of your own children and grandchildren as you wish to travel with (ID required); otherwise there is a maximum limit of three children.

Relaxed from the Airport to the inner city

Landed safely – what now?

From Munich Airport, S-Bahn lines S1 and S8 run to the city centre. They run alternately every 10 minutes, with the S1 going via Munich West and the S8 via Munich East. The trip takes around 40 minutes.

Takeoff. Well planned!

You can use the Airport-City Day Ticket for your trip to the airport, which is available from the ticket machines at most S-Bahn stations. Up to 5 people may travel with the partner version of the ticket.

The Entire Network Day Ticket can be used for the same purpose, and – since it is not auto-matically validated upon purchase – this ticket can also be bought in advance when you‘re planning your trip. If you live close to the airport, the Outer District Day Ticket would be a cheaper option. Alternatively you can use a Single Trip Ticket or a Stripe Ticket.

Airport-City-Day-Ticket Single € 11.20

Airport-City-Day-Ticket Partner € 20.40

Good to know

For: Single Tickets and Stripe Tickets

The Zones

The price of single trips and the number of stripes to validate on a stripe ticket depends on how many of the four zones within the MVV region you are travelling through. You need to count the number of zones you pass through in order to find out the right price for your ticket. For example, if you leave one zone in the north and then enter it again in the south, this zone will count twice. From four zones on the price remains the same. You must know the exact number of zones you need before you buy a Single Trip Ticket because it’s available for one, two, three or four zones. With the Stripe Ticket adults have to validate two stripes per zone.

Example: the journey from the airport to Olympiazentrum crosses four zones. So you would need a Single Ticket for four zones or to validate eight stripes of your Stripe Ticket.

For: Day Tickets

The Areas

The inner zone, which covers the whole of Munich city and certain surrounding areas, is called the Inner District. It is shaded white on our maps. The three other zones are coll-ectively known as the Outer Districts. The white and the green areas are referred to as

Munich XXL.

For: Short Trips

The Short Trip

You take one or two stops by S- or U-Bahn, then maybe another one or two by bus or tram. Or you take the tram or bus for up to four stops from the point of departure. These are called short trips for which you buy a Short Trip Single Ticket. In the districts outside Munich, every bus journey within the district boundary is classified as a short trip. Of course, you can also validate one stripe of the Stripe Ticket instead of buying a Short Trip Single Ticket.

You can even interrupt your journey, provided that you do not exceed the maximum travel time of one hour – that ist he validity of the ticket.

Example: to go from Ostbahnhof (East Station) to Maxmonument, you travel two stops on the S-Bahn (urban rail) to Isartor and two stops on tram service 18 to Maxmonument. So it’s a journey of four stops, of which only two involve the S-Bahn – the short trip tariff applies.

Validation

Single Trip Tickets, Stripe Tickets and Day Tickets must be stamped prior to the start of your journey. These tickets only become valid for travel once they have been validated.

For: IsarCard – Weekly and monthly passes

The Rings

We have broken the MVV network down into 16 rings for our weekly and monthly passes. The price is based on the number of rings you will travel through. You can use all lines in all directions within your chosen rings.

Example: if you live in Haar and buy a weekly or monthly pass for rings 1 - 4, this ticket enables you to travel within the entire Inner District as your ticket covers rings 1 - 4.

Validity of the IsarCard Weekly Pass

The IsarCard-weekly ticket is valid for one calendar week to 12 noon on the first working day of the following week.

Rules on who or what you are permitted to travel with:

Children under the age of 6 travel for free, provided that they are accompanied by someone over 6. One dog travels free of charge – if you have a valid ticket. The animal must be kept on a leash and wear a muzzle if it could be a risk to other passengers. Each additional dog requires a children’s ticket if not travelling in a basket or a bag.
