Munich Metro - Impressions and Map

We swept the subway in Munich. We liked it very much, but in many ways. First of all because it is quiet. Not just quiet, but very quiet! If you were in the Moscow metro, you will understand why you are paying attention to this. Indeed, in 3 hours of driving to work and back, such pressure on the ears is experienced, that you can become a zombie. It is clear that you get used to it, a person can get used to everything, but you can do it quietly, you can. I even remember one time, I traveled with earplugs, without music, just like earplugs.

Immediately you sit quietly and talk with the person opposite. You do not yell like a fool in your ear, tearing at the voice and tearing the eardrums of the interlocutor, but you have small talk on abstract topics.

Inside the munich subway

The rest of the Munich subway is very modern. New trains, electronic scoreboards at each station with the time of arrival of the train, and even the music at the stations plays sometimes. The doors to the car and from the car open at the touch of a button, very unusual, but popular throughout Europe. Saving electricity like that?

Still electricity save reversibleescalators, which are included only when a person approaches, and turn in the right direction, depending on where he comes from. Who has the priority is unknown, and check is broken.

Instead of turnstiles at the entrance to the station arevalidators where you need to punch a ticket yourself, which means you can ride for free if your conscience allows. Controllers are, but not always, a fine of 40 euros. We were once allowed, and we swept, just a couple of stations. More precisely, the German offered us to experience adrenaline, so we agreed. But so do, of course, not worth it. Even ashamed now. But then we did not do this anymore and always paid for the metro.

We were glad and free toilets in the subwayMunich, bakeries, and trash can at stations and in cars! Well, is it really so hard in Moscow to put trash cans at the stations, I’m already silent about the cars, because I’ll have less to clean myself later. And they also have defibrillators at the stations, and elevators are everywhere for people with disabilities, so they take care of people.

Where to stay in Munich

Munich is quite an expensive city, so hotels needsearch and book in advance, you can hardly find anything here. It is best to “walk” in advance on the map and estimate where it will be more convenient to live and what is the price. Here are two good hotels where you can stay, I recommend - Hotel Senator Munchen and Pension margit. The reviews are good, the location is good, the metro is near.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
