Munich, Germany

Munich is the capital and largest city of the German state of Bavaria. It is located on the River Isar, north of the Bavarian Alps. We know it's a great city to access ski resorts from, but is it worth a stop over first?

What's in Munich?

One of the things that Munich is so famous for is the beerfest but this tends to happen end of September/October, not great for skiers. For those interested in history there's the Nymphenburg Palace which used to be the summer residence of the Bavarian rulers. For art lovers head to the Pinakothek museum which houses some old master paintings.

Munich is also famous for its open air markets and shopping. Here you will find all the usual designer shops alongside those selling more traditional Bavarian products. For horticulturists amongst you check out the English garden, more expansive than New Yorks Central Park!

Accessing the Alps

After you've shopped and walked around the sights of Munich what's the best way to get on the slopes?


Munich airport is the second busiest airport in Germany and the seventh busiest in Europe. It is situated 28 km northeast of Munich. Lufthansa, British Airways, easyJet and Monarch Airlines operate direct flights from London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Bradford, Cardiff and Edinburgh.

You can get a train or bus from the city centre direct to the airport and there is plenty of car hire should you then wish to drive yourself onto the ski resort. It can take however up to 30 minutes driving or 40 minutes with the S-Bahn regional train service, so do take this into account.


Munich airport offers good access to ski resorts in Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Austria. The motorway connections as you would expect are all very good. Most of the major junctions relevant to ski resorts are well sign posted. If you are heading south to the ski resorts of Bavaria, Austria and Italy do be aware that the roads can get very busy. If you are also heading to resorts north of Innsbruck take the Garmisch route rather than following the directions to Innsbruck.


Munich airport is well connected to public transport networks. The airport has an underground railway station which will connect you to Munich in about 40 minutes. A bus service will also take you to Freising train station in 20 minutes where you can get connections to Prague, Nuremberg and Regenburg. Kitzbuhel can be reached by train in about 2 hours 30 minutes, Soll in 3 hours and Ellmau in 3 hours. The downside of the train over driving is that you may need to make connections by bus which can be a pain if you have lots of ski equipment.
