Reaching Munich with a Direct Flight
Munich has a large international airport, which is approached by a lot of airlines from various destinations. You can find a search form with all flights to Munich on the website of the Munich airport:
Flights from and to Munich
The Munich airport has two terminals. German Lufthansa and all of the Star Alliance airlines use terminal 2. All other airlines can be found at terminal 1.
Reaching Munich via Frankfurt / Main
In some cases it could make sense to fly to Frankfurt / Main. Either your airline does not fly to Munich or flies in at an inappropriate day. In this case Frankfurt / Main could be a good choice. From Frankfurt / Main you can choose a connection flight to Munich or use the railway. There is a railway station at the Frankfurt / Main airport. It takes a bit longer by train (approximately 3 to 4 hours), but you arrive in Munich city center instead of at the airport. And you will see more of the beautiful landscape!
Airline Rebate Program for the UPA 2010 conference
We are currently in negotiation with the Star Alliance and hope to offer a rebate program for flights to Munich. Stay tuned; we will publish the information as soon as it is available.
From the Munich Airport to the City
After you have arrived at the Munich airport, you have to travel to the hotel in the city. The airport is located in the north of Munich, 30 kilometers (18 miles) away from the city. The most comfortable (and unfortunately most expensive) way is to use a taxi. This will cost approximately 60 Euro.
Using the public transport is much cheaper: Two lines of the interurban train (called S-Bahn) assure a regular connection direct to the city. The S-Bahn on S1 or S8 lines runs every 20 minutes between 4AM and midnight. The journey (single) costs 9,20 Euro (or 10,00 Euro for a day pass) and it takes about 40 minutes to get to the central station. However, in this case you have to struggle with the usability of the ticket machines of the public transport.
A third way is a shuttle bus between the airport and the Munich Main station. The shuttle stops at both terminals, in the north of Munich and at the Main Station. A one-way ticket with the shuttle costs 10,50 Euro. An important note: The last shuttle departs at the airport at 7:50pm! Additional information is available on the web:
Traveling to Munich by Train
Munich's Main Station is located directly in center of the city. There are connections from most of the European metropolis to Munich. Check out the website of the German Railway for more detailed information:
