Airport Pickup: Sign up for transport from the FutureMaking team (+$400 on the registration page) to/from the Munich airport. Glen will facilitate your transport in this case. On the day you arrive we’ll track your flight details and meet you inside the airport.
Train: From the airport, take the S-Bahn (S1 or S8) train or airport shuttle (in Terminal 1, bus LH) bus to Munich Main Station (Munich Hauptbahnhof), which will take about 45 minutes. Then find the regional train service to Bayerische Oberlandbahn (BOB) which leaves every hour. The ride will be about 2 hours and you will get off at the Tegernsee Station which is located at the bottom of the hill from the hotel. We can arrange to pick you up at the station (at no cost) so you do not have to lug your bags up the hill.

Cars are easy to rent with a driver’s license or passport. There are many rental companies available at the Munich airport, athough reservations are recommended to guarantee any particular auto preferences. It is recommended that you reserve with a company that you can go direct to your vehicle (eg Hertz gold members at hertz.com or Sixt SmartStart at sixt.com) as line-ups can be expected. We also recommend booking with the rental car company directly, and not a 3rd party company (like Expedia or other car rental comparison sites) as these can add many complications when it comes time to pick up your car.
Sections of the German autobahn (freeway) do not have a speed limit. Use caution when changing lanes to pass cars since some drivers can reach speeds of up to 125 mph (200 km/h) and approach very suddenly. The suggested speed on the autobahn is 80 mph (130 km/h). The speed limit is 31 mph (50 km/h) in cities and 62 mph (100km/h) on highways. See this link for more driving tips.
Electrical outlets are 220V meaning any electronic or electrical devices from the US/Canada will NOT work unless the device has a plug that is adaptable for both 120/220V AND you buy a adapter to plug it into the wall (any airport, large pharmacy, travel store). An example adapter is the OREI European Plug Adapter Schuko Type E/F for Germany ($6 on Amazon).
Most laptops/electronics convert to either voltage but you will still need an adapter to plug it into the wall. You can look at any device and it should say input is between 110 and 240V. If you can’t find it written on the appliance be extra cautious as it could overheat/catch on fire.
