MUNICH CALLING: Due to the mobile phone (German: Handy) revolution, the number of public telephones around Munich is steadily decreasing, just like everywhere else in the world.
But you can still find them spread throughout the city, and especially at train and subway stations.
Public telephones are always cheaper than using a hotel phone.
In Munich they’re usually grey with bright pink highlights. The older telephone booths are yellow.
The majority of public telephones in Munich take phone cards (either 6 euros or 25 euros) which you can buy from newspaper stands, post offices and some hotels. Some also take either coins or credit cards.
You might want to consider buying an international telephone card before leaving home, a good idea if you’re planning to hit several countries over a couple of weeks. Costs, of course vary depending on where you're calling and the time of day.
Every once in a while a book comes along that changes your life.
Until it does, please consider buying Destination Munich and Bavaria, the grooviest, most informative guide on the market :-)
It'll give you full-colour maps, practical info and hundreds of tips on how to get the most out of your visit.
It's 227 pages of up-to-the-minute travel intelligence and it can be yours as an eBook for less than the price of an Oktoberfest beer. (read on)
