Wilkommen to Munich, the capital of Bavaria. World famous for its Oktoberfest celebrations but October isn’t the only month to visit Munich, there’s so much else to see and explore. One of Germany’s most popular locations, visitors flock from all over to revel in the city’s Bavarian heritage of art and architecture with a whole heap of alpine clichés along the way. It is a hub of business and technology but manages to retain a small-town air with plenty for everyone, all day and late into the evening.

Getting there

Munich Airport is approximately 40km north-east of the centre of the city but is effectively linked by various forms of public transport. Now you can fly directly to Munich from Southampton Airport with bmi regional or Flybe in just 1 hour 45 minutes (Flybe flights start 1st September).

When you get there though, don’t be in such a rush to jump on the S-Bahn, because the airport is an attraction in itself. Munich Airport has received many awards for its beautiful architecture and many people travel just to see the airport and call in on the special Visitors Park. Here you will find fabulous shopping facilities and a superb selection of gastronomic delights. It is also the first airport in the world to have its own mini brewery called Airbräu. You can even take a guided tour around the airport or just stand on the Viewing Hill and take in the sights of the historical aeroplanes on display, the terminal and runways.

Transport from Munich Airport

The Munich public transport authority is called MVV and, as you would expect, runs very efficiently providing smooth transitions from place to place. Find times, tickets and travel information.
