How to get a Taxi in Munich

All taxi cars in Germany have the same colour-scheme (cream white) and specific yellow/black signs on their roof.
You can hail a taxi on the street and if it is free, the driver will stop for you. During the night, free taxis have an illuminated yellow taxi sign on the roof of the car. Taxis without an illuminated sign will not stop for you, as they already have passengers on board.

- A tip isn’t expected, but you can round up to the nearest euro or give a 10 percent tip for exceptional service.
- Some taxi drivers have advertisements on their vehicles. There is no difference between taxis with or without advertisements, so you don't need to worry about that.
