From the airport a day ticket for up to 5 people plus any number of children is available. The S-bahn (metro train) is quicker than the taxi and MUCH cheaper.
To get around the area, a "Happy Weekend" ticket allows you to go where you will in Germany on local trains for 40 dollars for 5 people
We used the undergrounf to move back and forth from the fair area to the center. Really convenient and fast. When we were trying to figure out what kind of ticket was better for us a nice man explained us that for a one day ticket it was possible to make a "family ticket", it allow up to i believe 5 person to travel for one day on the entire trasportation system for about 9 euros. The ticket will be just one and it is shared so you have to be aware your group cant split.
The Munchen underground system is well developed over six lines that will take you everywhere and will keep you warm in winter time.
Underground stations are well-kept and comfrotable.
Tickets are sold in the stations, you can buy them from ticket machines. Fares changes depending on the distance, and you can also go for daily or multi-day passes.
The public transport system in Germany is one of the best in the world as far as I am concerned. If you are a single traveller, you have the option of buying a day ticket which you can use on all the busses, trains, trams & sometimes even on the boats. If you are travelling as a group (up to five), you can buy a gesamtkarte. Within the inner city the cost is 10.40 euro for the group, but you must travel together all the time and if you are staying like we did in Hallbergmoos, then you buy the Munich xxx ticket for 18.80 euro for your group. It works out a lot cheaper than buying individual tickets.
We took tram 18 from Hauptbahof and drive to end station of the line at the other side of Munich. The district at the end station was very peacefull with parks, villas in gardens. I thought myslef as I was in the before WW2 period.

I found the Underground system to be very good. Every time I used it there was train police on the train so Its Important to always buy a Ticket. Unlike some other cities I have been to they seem really strict when it comes to making sure you have brought a ticket.
Often a cause of confusion to us, the ticket machines at the airport. It's never obvious (to me anyway) which ticket will take us to the city centre. The journey crosses several fare zones.
The answer, at last, is this ticket - it is good for a journey into town then anywhere in the inner zone for the rest of the day, and up to five adults can us it.
The name to look for is "Partner - Tageskarte, Gesamtnetz"
As ever don't forget to validate it before you travel.
Info on other tickets on the website.
Munich's public transports are just great. The website bellow allow you to plan your trip.
Concerning tickets, there are the one day and 3 days tickets valid for all the inner rings (1-4), which cover most of the town.
To travel around Munich, use the Bayern Ticket. It's a one day ticket valid for five people (yes, 5!) and only costs around 28 euros. It's valid for all Bayern and all public transports can be used (there is one limitation: for trains it's valid mostly for regional ones).
For ticket details, see the links PRICES and TICKETS in the website below. For the Bayern ticket see:
Munich like just about any European city is very easy, and safe to get around. The metro comes right into the airport, and free maps are easy to find. The signs have english translations. I must say if we here in America could take a cue from our European friends, traveling in the major cities of the U.S. would be soooo much easier !!!!!
The train system in Germany is on the honor system for tickets, if you get caught without a ticket it is a 30 Euro fine. We bought a 3 day family ticket for 30 Euro's and up to 4 people can use the same ticket.....well worth it !!!!!!
