After leaving Amsterdam quite late in the day, we arrived in Munich gone midnight! So, we couldn't wait to spend the next day exploring and seeing what the city was like!
When Harmony and I landed in Munich, we found it easy enough to navigate through the airport, to the train station. A train into the city cost us about 11€ each, which seemed like a lot to me, but it was a surprisingly long journey!
Waiting for us at the platform was the S1 train. The S8 train would've taken less time to get into the city, but they come at alternate times. So, even though the S1 took an hour, it was still five minutes quicker than waiting and getting the S8.
We got the train to Karlsplatz Station and, from there, we walked for about ten minutes. We could've just changed trains, but we couldn't be bothered to get another ticket and everything in the city seemed to be in close proximity anyway! It wasn't the best rail system that I've been on, but there were always stops where we needed them, and we were lucky enough to have one right outside our hotel!
In retrospect, it would've been worth getting a multi-day train ticket because we ended up paying lots of little train fares that soon started to add up. It wasn't until the second day that I got a 3-day ticket, which only cost 16.50€!
Where We Stayed
Our hotel was called Centro Hotel Mondial and it was great value for money! The surrounding area wasn't that nice, but it was the closest we could get to the old town without breaking the bank - about 70€ a night. We could've paid 8€ extra each morning for breakfast, but we saved our money and headed into the city centre instead because we just wanted to get out and explore!
