Travel

Munich's public transport infrastructure is one of the most efficient in the world. The city on the Isar is home to Germany's second largest airport and one of the most important hubs in European air traffic. Thanks to numerous continental and intercontinental destinations, guests from around the world can reach the Bavarian capital by direct flight.

The public transport network, both within the city and the surrounding area, is also highly developed. Another strong point of Munich is safety. By international comparison, the city itself and the entire region is extremely safe.
