This place is a major ski resort in the country and the heart of the Bavarian Alps. If you’re planning to visit this amazing town, you might be interested in how to reach it. So, to do that, you may use public transportation, taxis, or private transfers.
Taxi to Garmisch-Partenkirchen
Plenty of travelers order taxis to get to Garmisch-Partenkirchen as this is a fast and convenient way to reach the resort.

It may be problematic to find a minibus on the spot, so if you need such a vehicle, book it in advance. Also, be careful when dealing with private taxi drivers: ripping off passengers is frequent among them.
Transfer to Garmisch-Partenkirchen
The safest and most reliable way to reach the town is using a private transfer. Reserving it, you know the price for your journey beforehand and it never rises after your order is made. This option is also the fastest: when your flight arrives, the transfer driver is already waiting for you inside the terminal, so you don’t have to look for any rank or wait for your car to arrive.

Public Transport to Garmisch-Partenkirchen
Public transport is the cheapest option to reach Garmisch-Partenkirchen. If you choose it to get to the resort from Munich Airport, be ready to make one change on the way. First, take an S-Bahn train to the Bavarian capital (Line S1 or S8). This will cost you €13. In the city, change to a train going to the resort. The fare will depend on the train type. The high-speed one will take you to the town for €23.2 (2nd-class).
These services are not available at night. If you’re going to make a trip after midnight, it would be better to reserve a taxi or a private transfer in advance.
