Taxis & Uber
Taxis are very expensive. When you are bigger group it can be cheaper and give you more flexibility as you don’t have to rely on timetables. You can ask the hotel to organise a taxi for you.
Uber also operates in Munich so you can use the app to also organise a ride at a more reasonable cost.
