Efficient and clean public transport, the S-Bahn and U-Bahn in Munich

The public transport in Munich is unbelievable, clean, save, efficient and they even have beautiful subway stations. The orange curved tunnels are the underground at the Marienplatz. Most trains are modern but some old vehicles are still in use. All seats are clean and people respectful, there are no security issues. At stations like Königsplatz, you see wall paintings or art from the museums above. If you are travelling with friends or family you can buy a Partnerkarte for up to five people. The public transport is not expensive.

Openbaar vervoer in München is ongelooflijk, proper, veilig, en er zijn tevens mooie metro stations. De oranje tunnels bevinden zich onder de Marienplatz. De meeste treinen zijn modern maar er rijden toch nog enkele oudere exemplaren. De zitplaatsen zijn altijd proper en mensen gedragen zich respectvol, er zijn geen veiligheidsproblemen. Metrostations zoals op Königsplatz, zijn versierd met muurschilderingen en kunst van de bovengrondse musea. Als je met vrienden op stap bent kan je een partnerkaart kopen waarmee je samen met vijf mensen kan reizen. Het openbaar vervoer is niet duur..

  1. So very true, this is a lovely spot! Public transportation is usually always the better value for your money, and I really wish Minneapolis would offer more of it!

  3. Zo vreemd dat wij het bijzonder vinden dat openbaar vervoer netjes en schoon is. Vergelijk dit eens met de Amsterdamse metro...

  4. Really beautiful and clean subway. I love the top image.
    In Helsinki there is only one metro - east from the centrum. Now it will be continued to the west. Maybe in 2025 it comes to my city district. It costs a lot and there are great conversations.
    Hugs.

  5. I have been to Munich, but I never took the public transport. It looks really nice and clean. What I would expect in a major German city. :)
    Happy weekend!

  6. Oh my goodness, this place looks like an art museum!!!!! Too bad that our New York subways are not attractive and have a bad reputation, why can't they be more like this...

  7. What amazing looking trains with the art on them. Makes traveling by subway look very pleasant. Nothing like Chicago where I am originally from. Have a wonderful weekend.

  8. I like the curved rails, really important for some support for those who do not find a seat inside the metro car. I dont like ours which are belt-like hanging from the car ceiling which is not reachable by some especially the elderly!
