The Munich City Card is a special pass that allows you unlimited travel on Munich’s public transportation (called MVG), including metro, suburban railway, bus, and tram.

In addition, the Munich City Card offers discounts on over 70 Munich attractions including museums, restaurants, and behind-the-scenes city tours. Highlights include:

  • Beer and Oktoberfest Museum: Covering everything about German beer, this museum is in a restored 14th-century townhouse and provides plenty of opportunities for tastings. 1.50 euro off the entrance.
  • Nymphenburg Palace: Once the summer residence of royals, the "Castle of the Nymph" is a Baroque palace open to the public. 1 euro off the entrance.
  • Munich Walk Tours: Native English speakers as well as real live Bavarians offer an excellent look at the city. Tours include a Beer & Brewery Tour, City Walk, Dachau Memorial, Hitler’s Munich, Neuschwanstein Castle, Christmas Market Tour and more. 20% discount on tour prices.
  • Olympic Park: This impressive structure was constructed for the 1972 Summer Olympics. The Park still serves as a venue for the cultural and social event venue.  1 euro off regular admission and .50 off stadium tour. 
  • Bavaria Filmstadt: The magical world of the NeverEnding Story is actually in Bavaria. Ride on Falkor the dragon and learn about the influential studio responsible for many current blockbuster films. Discount is 1 euro off the entrance.

To get the most out of the attractions, MVV has laid out recommended tours for families, men, and women.

It covers three-days of activities and is only available in German. To receive the discounts, you usually need only present the card at the ticket office. However, some partners require a coupon. Included with the card are an A3-size map of Munich’s downtown area and an overview of the public transport system.
