Taxis in Munich

Imagine cosy Bavarian gardens, friendly locals dancing and sipping beer out of tall tankards and couples walking under the Rathaus-Glockenspiel at dusk and you will start to get a grip of what a vacation in Munich feels like. Oktoberfest is when Munich truly shines and if you are here for some tasty half-litre goodness, don’t waste any precious time trying to figure out complicated underground lines. Instead, hop in a Munich taxi and explore all the famous breweries with a local driver.

How to get a taxi in Munich

With more than 1.500 different taxi companies and 4.000 drivers hovering around the city, Munich has the highest density of taxis per inhabitant in Germany, so finding a local taxi couldn’t be easier. All taxi cars in Germany have the same colour scheme (cream white) and specific yellow/black signs on the roof.

You can hail a taxi from the street and if it is free, the driver will stop for you. At night, free taxis have an illuminated yellow taxi sign on the roof. Taxis without an illuminated sign will not stop for you, as they already have passengers on board.

There are also numerous taxi stands near tourist spots or famous monuments, namely Marienplatz, Asamkirche and the New Town Hall. If you’d rather book with a private taxi company, Taxi-München (+49 89 19410) and IsarFunk (+49 89 450540) are the main taxi providers for the city of Munich.

  2. A tip isn’t expected, but you can round up to the nearest euro or give a 10% tip for exceptional service.
