Like other major cities, Munich relies on public transport to transport passengers within the city. If you come to the city by bus or arrive so public transport is necessary, but even if you arrive by your own car so it is more comfortable, faster and especially you will not have to worry about parking, which is especially within the center very complicated.
The main means of urban transport in Munich is the underground railway, that is, the U-Bahn. It has a total of seven lines and a large transport capacity. It is complemented by suburban S-Bahn trains, thirteen tram lines and also buses.

The fastest and also the most comfortable is, of course, air transport. The local international airport is located about 30 kilometers northeast of the city and is the second largest in Germany in terms of the number of passengers carried. You can get from the airport to the city without problems with the help of suburban transport, unless you want to use more expensive taxi options.
