Detailed information on getting from the airport to the Holiday Inn hotel:
The S-Bahn Lines S1 and S8 commute to downtown Munich. The S-Bahn symbol is a big white “S” in a green circle. There is a stop near the Holiday Inn Munich City Centre Hotel which is called: ‘Rosenheimer Platz’. S1 takes 51 minutes, S8 takes 35 minutes from the Airport, so you better take S8.
After you get off the S-Bahn at “Rosenheimer Platz” it is important to take the correct exit from the train platform. Take the one that is on the “west” (closer towards the main train station), it will be marked as the exit towards “Gasteig”. Take the escalators from the platform up to the top, you will find yourself in a shopping mall. At the top of the escalators, turn left (you should also see a (green/white) sign for Holiday Inn), you walk through a doorway that has a lot of yellow light around it and the hall then curves around to the right (goes up a short ramp). You will see another escalator, but don’t take it and instead walk to the left of the escalator. Walk past an “Aldi” store, past a “Müller” bakery, past the “HIT” grocery store. Again you will see another escalator which you ignore and walk to the left of. Keep walking. Eventually you see straight ahead a store called “Titus” with red/black lettering. Just before that store you will see a short set of stairs (and an elevator) that go up to the Holiday Inn. All along the way you will also see signs for Holiday Inn. Most important part is to take the correct escalator up from the train platform. And then take no more escalators.
Buy a ‘Single One Way’ ticket for 8,80 € at the airport and don’t forget to stamp it before entering the train. There are no cancelling machines on the trains. If you plan to further use of public transport facilities on your day of arrival we recommend to buy a ‘single day ticket-Gesamtnetz/entire network’ at the price of 10,00€ or a ‘partner day ticket-Gesamtnetz/entire network’ at the price of 18,00€ which is valid for up to 5 adults. The day tickets are valid until 6 a.m. the next day .
