From Munich Airport

First of all, please buy an Airport-City-Day-Ticket. This is a day ticket for the entire MVV-network (our local public transportation).

* Valid from the moment of purchase until 6 am the following day
* All means of transport within the MVV: S-Bahn (suburban trains), regional trains, U-Bahn (underground), buses and trams
* Available as a single ticket (fare: 12,80 €) or as a group ticket for up to 5 adults (fare: 23,90 €)

The Airport-City-Day-Ticket is available from the MVV-ticket machines at the airport. First select "MVV Münchner Verkehrs- und Tarifverbund" on the screen, then “Airport-City-Day-Ticket“. You may pay with coins, bank notes or credit cards.

Take the S-Bahn (surburban train) S1 or S8 to station "Marienplatz" (about 35 min.), then transfer to subway (U-bahn) line U6 in direction "Klinikum Grosshadern". Please be aware of the different spelling: Sometimes you will see "Großhadern", sometimes "Grosshadern" - it means the same.

Exit the U-Bahn U6 at the terminal station "Klinikum Großhadern" (about 16 minutes).

Change to bus 266 (direction "Planegg"). The bus stops at "LMU Martinsried", just besides LMU BioCenter. The bus departs every 10 minutes Mon-Fri between 7 am and 8 pm, but less frequently evenings/weekends. Alternatively, you can also take a 15 minute walk towards our institute.
