ISAR U-Bahn ticket in Munich online?

Jump to last reply

We would like to buy a weekly ISAR ticket to ride the U-Bahn in Munich Germany, however I would like to purchase this on-line so we have this before we start our trip. I thought that would be easier than trying to buy from a machine at the station once we get there. I cannot find any sites that sell these ISAR tickets online. Does anyone know of one? Thanks.

    The reason is pretty simple: you can't buy the IsarCard weekly or monthly passes online.
    You have to get them from a vending machine or from other points of sale like tobacconists when in Munich (or from the staffed ticket counter at the airport).

    In addition, the IsarCard has a more complicated fare zone system than the regular tickets or (multi-) day passes.
    The Munich transport system has 4 fare zones for regular tickets, but splits up those in 4 "rings" each, so you end up with 16 fare zones for the IsarCard.
    For most visitors, Nymphenburg castle and gardens are the most distant sight - measured from the city center. So you would then need only rings 1+2, i.e. you pay €14.70 for the weekly IsarCard.

    If you plan a trip to the suburbs, e.g. to Dachau, it won't make sense to get an IsarCard that covers also that area. The number of additional "rings" you needed would make the total price prohibitive, compared with just buying an extra day pass also good for traveling to the suburbs.

    It does not only sound complicated, the Munich fare zone system is really not the easiest to comprehend.
