LMU Main Building
LMU Munich’s historic Main Building is located in the heart of the city. We recommend that you use Munich’s excellent public transportation network.
Directions from the airport to LMU Main Building
In order to get from the airport to your hotel or the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich (LMU Munich), you can either use public transportation or a taxi. A taxi from the airport to the city center costs about 70€ and may not be any faster than the public transportation system.
In case you want to use the public transportation, we suggest taking the S-Bahn (regional train) from the airport to the city center. The train stations called Hauptbahnhof or Marienplatz. At the airport, just follow the white S in a green circle. You will be able to take either of the trains, S1 or S8. For the transfer from the airport to your hotel a „Einzelfahrkarte 4 Zonen und mehr” (single ride ticket) costs 10.80€. The same applies for the return ticket. To get around in the city center you can buy day passes. For instance the “Tageskarte Innenraum” (day pass inner circle) costs 6.20€ per person. There are also group tickets available for groups of up to 5 people.
