Famed for its gothic architecture, ancient buildings and beer halls, Munich is an appealing destination for many travellers.

Travellers can easily reach the city centre on foot, or benefit from the tram and bus stops that are located in the station forecourt at the station's main entrance. In a different part of the station, travellers can also catch an S-Bahn or U-Bahn within the underground stations.
