Directions

Buying a ticket

The airport is in the outermost zone (zone 4) of Munich's public transport system (MVV/ MVG) and the Rachel Carson Center is located in the central zone. We recommend you purchase a day ticket for the entire network (Tageskarte Gesamtnetz), which will cover any journeys on public transport for the rest of the day. If you are travelling in a group, a Partner-Tageskarte covers up to five adults travelling together. Don’t forget to validate (date-stamp) your ticket before boarding a train. Alternatively, you can purchase a “stripe ticket” (Streifenkarte) and validate the first eight stripes, or a single ticket. For a picture see here

Travelling to the RCC

Munich airport is served by the S-Bahn (commuter train). Inside the airport, follow the green S signs to the station. There are two lines operating from the airport, the S8 and the S1. For the RCC, you can take either line, the S8 takes you a bit faster to the RCC. A train leaves approximately every 10 minutes.

You should travel on the S-Bahn to the stop “Marienplatz” in central Munich. The journey time is approximately 45 minutes.  At Marienplatz you need to change onto the U-Bahn (subway) northbound to get to the stop “Giselastraße”. Follow the blue U signs from the platform. Both the U3 and the U6 travel to Giselastraße – ensure that you are travelling in the direction of Münchener Freiheit (Richtung Münchener Freiheit). Giselastraße is the third stop.
