With the Munich City Pass/Munich Card, you can ride all these forms of transportation by the MVV within selected areas of Munich for the period of time you have booked your Pass/Card. No need to buy any tickets—simply get on and off you go!

City centre area "area M" 

With the MVV Ticket you can use large parts of Munich's public transport system free of charge. The ticket allows you to use MVV buses, trains and trams until 6 a.m. the following day at no extra cost. When booking the München Card and the City Pass, you can choose between the city centre area (Zone M) and the Munich area network (Zones M to 6). The ticket for the entire network includes the transfer to and from the airport within the period of validity. 

There are a total of 12 zones in the MVV area. Zone M covers the urban area of Munich. It includes the SEA LIFE Munich, Nymphenburg Palace with the Munich Botanical Gardens, the Deutsches Museum and the Lenbachhaus. 

Zone M-6 includes the zones M, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, with which you can travel to the airport, to Herrsching to Lake Ammersee and to Tutzing to Lake Starnberg. Zone M also includes the New Schleißheim Palace and the Deutsches Museum's Flugwerft.

To reach the cities Nuremberg and Salzburg as well as the Neuschwanstein Castle and the Herrenchiemsee Castle, we cooperate with Radius tours as  a discount partner, because these destinations are not within the MVV area. This partner offers guided tours starting at Munichs central station.
