Take the S8 from the airport to Rosenheimer Platz
- journey time approximately 40 minutes. Don't take the S1, the total journey time will be much longer.
After you get off the train at Rosenheimer Platz, walk 2 metres to the other side of the platform.
Wait for the S5, it is usually 3-5 minutes after you've arrived at Rosenheimer Platz, and travels in the opposite direction from the train you just got off.
Get on the S5 (direction Holzkirchen/Deisenhofen).
Don't panic when it seems to go back in the same direction at Ostbahnhof
- its just changing track before heading southward.
The S5 takes around 20 minutes to Taufkirchen
. Get off.
I'm in a helpful mood today, and used to take this route regularly
forget everything else written (except the bit about following the green "S" to get to the S-bahn station), just follow dreamers instructions in the post above. Rosenheimerplatz
is by far the easiest place to change trains!
here is a link to check times of the trains:
just enter "Flughafen München" in the field for "from" and "Taufkirchen" in the field for "to". Enter the time as 24hr clock. And remember, change at Rosenheimerplatz
, not Ostbahnhof, even if the link above tells you to.
here is a map showing the location of your hotel and its proximity to the station:
