Re: Zurich to Munich Airport

I would take a Flixbus to Munich then a taxi. The trains are slower.

Re: Zurich to Munich Airport

I second the Flixbus recommendation. You can check their baggage allowance below, and they'll take a second bag for €2.

Re: Zurich to Munich Airport

I would go to Memmingen instead of Munich.
Then you are at least at the right airport.

Re: Zurich to Munich Airport

But you need to change once and the journey takes 9 or 10 hours! That's why I suggested going to Munich and taking a taxi to the airport.

Possibly not - there is a FR flight from Munich to Dublin at weekends at 21:30(ish). Almost all the Memmingen flights leave much earlier apart from an odd one to Porto

You could book bus or train at bahn.de directly to flughafen Muenchen. Train will take you only 1/2 hour longer if you prefer train over bus. From either bus station (close to S-bahnhof Hackerbruecke) or HBF you can take the S-bahn to the airport as well in stead of taxi.

I second that.


Flixbus is ok, but I found the Deutsche Bahn bus (i.e., the train company's bus service) between Zurich HB and Munich better in terms of comfort and cleanliness.


At the Munich bus station, go downstairs and catch the S-Bahn to the airport. That part should take you between 45 minutes to an hour.

Which leads us to the legendary "10 minutes" speech where the former head of Bavaria tried to make a point for a direct maglev train from Munich HB to the airport.

(No, it's not your German skills. He does not make complete sentences... and no, they don't make much sense.)

Ryanair doesn't fly to/from Munich. They fly to/from "Allgäu Airport Memmingen". Just a bit above 130km from Munich.

However, in your case of getting from there from Switzerland, it's already in the right direction (ie, halfway there)

Busses are cheap, but slow/delayed, trains are slow (and you'd have to get from a station to the airport too) and relatively expensive.

In short: Getting to middle of nowhere in Bavaria from Switzerland without a car won't be very much fun.

edit: If you're really taking that single flight Ex-MUC with Ryanair (didn't knew about it till now), obviously ignore post above.

Either take flixbus (slow, often delayed) or train (slow too, less delayed but still..)

There are about 5-6 connections per day on Flixbus that will work, to Munich. And then subway/taxi to the airport.

DB drives with their "IC Bus". Alternatively, try SBB or Deutsche Bahn itself (I think the later one will also display prices for their bus directly)

Flixbus can be had for 15€ per person (adult) for some days/buses, so even with a taxi in MUC, it will be around 100€ total. S-Bahn isn't really cheap in Munich..

Re: Zurich to Munich Airport

The SBB Bus is faster than the SBB train.
You can book it via your friendly local swiss train ticket office.

First (and last) time I agreed to to collect a visiting minor from Munich coincided with dramatic snowfall (December ‘14) - the train from ZH to Munich took 8 hours not 4’ish and the S-bahn added another hour...my point being you will need to add a comfortable margin. If your flight leaves at 9pm I would depart comfortably mid-morning and let any excess time be absorbed by a quick look around Munich.

There are some hotels nearby the airport offering "sleep, park and fly" arrangements, where you get to park for free or a low fee if you're overnighting there before and/or after your flight. Alternatively, there is regular parking available too. It's relatively expensive, and obviously with a car round trip (assuming 70 Rappen/km) of around 600km, it will be above 500 CHF all-in-all, so unless you got a company car where you don't have to pay for usage, it's MUCH more expensive than taking bus/train, even for 4 people, at least when you book a bit ahead and bus/train tickets are cheaper.

However, if money isn't that much of a concern (but then why flying Ex-MUC? ) and/or the car usage for you is free, I'd always take my own car on this route.
