Traveling by Train From Berlin to Munich

Chances are, if you are in the midst of planning a trip to Germany, you have Berlin or Munich on your itinerary. And why wouldn’t you? These are two of the most iconic German cities that receive millions of travelers each year.

You can take the train from Berlin to Munich, traveling in comfort and style on Germany’s high-speed trains and arrive in just over 6 hours.

After you’ve had a quick bite to eat, you can check-out of your hotel or hostel and head to the Berlin Central Train Station. Board the ICE (Inter City Express) train and travel directly to Munich Main (or Hauptbahnhof) Station. The train takes approximately 6 hours, and fares begin at 1 per person.Brandenburg Gate You can purchase individual train tickets that include a seat reservation, or if you are traveling extensively throughout Germany, you can get a German Rail Pass and simply purchase a seat reservation at an additional fee.

Things to See & Do in Berlin and Munich

Here’s a great list of must-see & do activities when you travel from Berlin to Munich, do one or all, the choice is up to you!

Rathaus-Glockenspiel of Munich10. Checkpoint Charlie Museum – As you set out to explore the city of Berlin, you may want to include the Checkpoint Charlie Museum on your list of things to see. In this museum, discover objects that were used to escape over, under, and through the Berlin Wall. You can read the stories of those who risked their lives for freedom, and remember those who perished in the attempt to escape. This is a very moving museum – worth a few hours of your time to visit. Entry is included with a Berlin Pass.

9. Have a Liter at The Hofbrauhaus – There is debate about visiting this beer house, is it a tourist trap, or is it worth your time. In our experience, if you’re looking for a place to enjoy lively, upbeat atmosphere, good food and authentic German beer, than the Hofbrauhaus is just the place for you. There are several seating options, from the front hall (where you can enjoy music performed by live bands) to upstairs, or outside in the beer garden. Menus are delivered to you in English – should you not be up on your German, and the servers are polite and accommodating to patrons, including those with special dietary needs. The thing that will really stand out on your visit is the vaulted ceilings and architecture of the Hofbrauhaus. Truly unique and just awe-inspiring to look at! Definitely take some time to either tour the building, enjoy a meal, or both!
