Chillisauce votes for Munich’s public transportation system. It’s excellent, very modern and operates with great German efficiency. You’ll find inexpensive fares and save even more by buying a ten ticket strifenkarte pack. Remember that all tickets are time stamped and then only valid for a certain time limit so don’t let yours expire. Another great option is to get a three-day group travel card for the inner zone at €20.
Driving is a real hassle with many pedestrianised areas in the city and minimal parking. But you will easily find inexpensive taxis – a far better choice if you want to go door to door on your stag night adventures.
