    Late Night Train Departure

    by theflickguy Online Now Jul 22, 2016 at 7:14 PM

    We will be leaving our last night in Munich on a very late night train (11:30 PM), which makes for a very long day without a hotel room or place to relax for the latter part of our day. Can anyone suggest somewhere that we can "camp out" for a few hours before our departure, such as late-night spot near the Hauptbahnhof?

    I am a little confused regarding the City Tour Card and MVV. Our main purpose is to visit the museums in Munich. The Public Bus Line 100 as I understand stops at all museums. Is this bus like the hop on hop off bus where you are able to get off at one museum and back on to travel to another museum on the same ticket, or should we purpose the City Tour Card or MVV? Appreciate your answers. Thank you......................

    I will be in Munich on 12th and 13th July. I want to spend a day in Salzburg and have tentatively booked a hotel there for the night of the 14th. I am also booked on a flight from Munich to Berlin at 8.20am on 15th with Air Berlin. How early would I have to leave Salzburg to get to Munich Airport for bag drop? Or would it be better for me to travel back to Munich night before. I have a Mozart concert I want to attend in Salzburg in the evening also.

    Hello, I should arrive on Munich on early december for few days for Christmas markets. I know that it is one of the safetiest city in Europe, but I don`t know how safe is Munich after terror attacks in Paris. Is it dangerous to visit Munich now? especially in public areas such as Christmas markets, churches, public transports, trains? Are there police and army to care of people? I think to cancel my trip, but any advice is welcome and will help me to make a decisions. Thank you!
