Map of Munich
MAP OF MUNICH: If you’re looking forward to your visit you might like to have a map of Munich before you arrive in the city.
But unless you can find a good-quality map of the city at your local book store you’re better off waiting until you get here.
Here's an example of the kind of maps of Munich you can find online. Scroll down for website links which have Munich maps.
Finding maps in Munich
My advice is to use free Internet maps to do your research, and print out a Google map showing how to get your hotel. Then when you get to Munich you can pick up a fold-out colour map of the city from one of the following places:
▪ Where you’re staying –
Most hostels and hostels have decent maps of Munich for their guests. Some of these Munich maps even include witty reviews of the city’s sights and nightspots. Munich’s Wombat’s Hostel
puts out a particularly entertaining guide on the back of theirs.
▪ Starbucks –
The Starbucks inside the Hauptbahnhof
(Main Train Station) has free and perfectly usable Munich city maps. The coffee shop is at the southern end of the station next to platform 11.

The tourist info centres at the Hauptbahnhof

▪ Ticket offices –
The MGV (Munich public transport) ticket offices in the subway at Marienplatz and Sendlinger Tor sell Munich maps for €3.
▪ Bookshops –
The chain of Hugendubel bookshops sell high quality maps of Munich. See the Books in English

Downloadable PDF Munich maps
Here are links to a couple of PDF Munich maps which you can download and print out. They're from discovermunich.net, which also organises free bike tours.
They both cover roughly the same area, just pick the format you like best (I prefer the top one).

Munich maps on the Internet
I usually use the standard Google map for my online research, but there are other maps of Munich Germany available.
Here are links to a few of them:
▪ Munich on Bing maps
Good maps of Munich where you have the ability to zoom in and see things from a “bird’s eye view” as I’ve put together on this page
▪ Hot Maps
A neat, colourful Munich city map.
▪ Amtlicher Stadtplan
The official government city map which lets you search for parking spots for people with disabilities, and other such things (in German).
▪ Open Street Map
An OK, but rather messy open-source Munich map.
