Climate of Munich   

Munich has a continental climate, strongly modified by the proximity of the Alps. The city's altitude and proximity to the northern edge of the Alps mean that precipitation is rather high. Rain storms often come violently and unexpectedly. The range of temperature between day and night or summer and winter can be extreme. A warm downwind from the Alps (a föhn wind) can change the temperatures completely within a few hours, even in the winter.

By plane:
Munich International Airport (IATA: MUC; ICAO: EDDM) is the second biggest German airport and has two terminals. Terminal 2 is used by Lufthansa and its partner airlines from Star Alliance.  All other airlines use the older Terminal 1. The Munich airport is located outside of Munich in a northeastern suburb. Due to the increased number of flights, the airport has expanded and now offers connections to most domestic airports in Germany, as well as many international airports elsewhere. Intercontinental destinations include New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Chicago, Delhi, Mumbai, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Seoul, Dubai, Doha, Bangkok and many others. If you are unable to fly to Munich directly, you can arrange a transfer via Frankfurt. Flight time from Frankfurt to Munich is about 35 minutes.


By train:
Most major European cities connect to Munich by rail. Munich's Hauptbahnhof (main station) is conveniently located in the center of Munich. The Deutsche Bahn uses Munich as one of its main German hubs and has good connections to neighboring countries (Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic and Italy) and to all southern German cities.

The main station is west of Marienplatz (two S-Bahn stations) or a short walk away from the city center. The main station also has a traveler-friendly infrastructure including several restaurants, a tourist's bureau and a Deutsche Bahn ticket and travel agency office.

By car:
Highways from many directions lead to Munich, however they often get congested at peak times and on weekends, especially during the ski season. For day trips to Munich, it's probably best to leave your car in a Park&Ride car park.
