Public Transportation - Free of Charge!

The MVV network allows travel within the Munich city area, using the S-Bahn and U-Bahn (suburban and metro railway), trams, city buses and regional buses. Your participant badge (issued at registration) also doubles as an MVV Congress CombiTicket and can be used as a substitute for a ticket to travel in all the Munich inner district “Innenraum”, free of charge during IGARSS, i.e. from July 22 until July 27, 2012. So be sure to wear your badge at all times. Note that for journeys to the airport, you will require another ticket (available for 11.00 Euro) as you will be leaving the inner district "Innenraum" of Munich. More information about costs and the MVV network can be found at:
