Munich and the Schnellbahnnetz

Jump to last reply

Hello,

I'm planning a trip to Munich in May and right now I'm attempting to plan how I want to do the city. The first thing I need to figure out though, is how to get around the city. I've found that they have the Schnellbatnnetz train system, but I'm having trouble finding information about it specifically. If anyone could answer a few questions, I would be much appreciated.

For reference, this is the map I found which I presume is a recent, up-to-date one:

1) I notice that they have an S Bahn and a U Bahn, but I cannot determine the difference between the two, if any.

2) How does one go about purchasing tickets for this system? Can you get them at the stations themselves? Can you pre-load a card? Do they have turnstiles that you use your tickets at to get into the station or does a conductor check them on the train?

3) How much in general would it take to a single ride? Do you pay per ride or by distance traveled?

4) If I missed it, is there a better way to get around the city?

I would be grateful for any help explaining this system.

Thanks
