Lodging & Travel
The accommodations for this tour are budget friendly lodging locations - all of which I have stayed at before and can highly recommend for cost savings, comfort, and service. Two persons per room with private bath and conveniently located near train stations. For additional photos of lodging and transportation, click here.
Instead of using bus service, this tour offers the experience of traveling like a German. We will be using the S-Bahn train from the Munich Airport to Downtown Munich and Downtown Munich to Freising (near the airport). We will use the DB (or Deutsche Bahn) trains for all other travel. A shuttle van will be used from Freising to the Airport.
