It was very easy, with a voucher at the airport to the EH - exchange it for a ticket and take the S1 to the main station! From there you have all possibilities to explore Munich! There were five of us and the CityCard has already paid off for the two transfers to the airport!

Experiencing one day with three different tours and thus three different focal points was the best idea. We had picked out the focal points and were able to plan and see what interested us for the next few days. A very good project.

Amazing experience, for 1st time travellers in Munich to see all the worth seeing stops, choose the blue bus, it has more stops

We liked it very much. Running out with my niece. We were both very enthusiastic gladly again :)‍♀️

Very informative yo learn history and local information
