Tram ride to the city centre

Blog 7 from Alejandra

Hallo! I hope you are doing well. I am writing now during my Tram ride to the city center. It Is such a pleasant ride, I enjoy it so much because the windows are large and you can see all of the stores and places that Munich has to offer. It is really nice. Actually, DeutschAkademie is in the heart and center of the city. There are a lot of different means of transportation here it’s incredible! There’s the U-Bahn (subterranean metro), the S-Bahn (subway), the bus, the tram. I hope I am not forgetting another one. It’s great because when you miss your regular means of transportation (for example when I loose my 8:04 Tram) I can just hop on to the 8:06 U-Bahn and still get on time for class. In other situations I would have to wait 10 minutes for the next 8:14 Tram and wouldn’t be on time for class. All of them are quick, I’d say the quickest is the U-Bahn. And all of them are so clean! Munich is such a clean city! Also, all of these means of transportation are very well signaled, you can spot them from far away. The U-Bahn icon is blue and has a giant U on it (like in the picture), the S-Bahn is green with a giant S on it, Bus sign is a bit teal and says Bus, and the Tram signal is red and says Tram. There’s no way to get lost. 

There is also right now a big big deal for promoting tourism into Deutschland and it’s the 9 euro ticket. If you buy one, you can use it on all means of transportation for one entire month and throughout Deutschland. You can go from München up until the north, for example where Hamburg (as I was told haha) is. I am lucky because I’ve saved money on travel throughout the months of June, July and August. 

Have a good good day!
