Spousal Dispute: Do you think I'm unrealistic?

Jump to last reply

My spouse and I are having a friendly spat about what is realistic on our Germany trip. Note, we have a 1 day layover in Munich. Does everyone think it is unrealistic to get to the city centre in 2 hours from the airport?

Our flight arrives in Munich at 9:55am. I think we should TRY to see the Glockenspiel show at 12pm. Spouse thinks we should not even try this crazy endeavor as it's too rush. However, it is the only time we will have in Munich. My thinking is, if the train leaves every 10 minutes from airport to the city center, and it takes 40 minutes, we just have to get onto the train by 11:10am or 11:20am or 11:30am. If we get off at Marienplatz, we may be able to catch the last few minutes of the Glockenspiel (I don't have to see the whole thing just a minute is fine). If we were in another country (Italy, China), I wouldn't be confident, but in Munich, my guess is trains are on schedule and efficient and getting around will be easier

Spouse is saying we should forget this plan, but I'm more ambitious...Thoughts? Is there anything else we can do to speed up the time it takes to find the S-Bahn from the airport? We are *hoping* to pack light for the trip, so we can skip the luggage pickup. If we only have carry-on bags, we can go directly to the train (after passport control)

Thanks!
