S-Bahn Munich: How to get home even though it is blocked – Munich


  • As there was "water in the track area" between the Hauptbahnhof and Hackerbrücke stations, the main line was largely paralyzed in the morning.
  • An estimate of how long the disturbance lasts cannot give the course according to its own data.
  • We inform you about the current operational situation and alternatives:

Due to the interruption, the S-Bahn movement in the center of Munich has been suspended. Water damage is obvious. As of 10.30am on Tuesday morning there are no trains running between Hackerbrücke and Isartor stations on the main line on Tuesday morning. The reason for the interruption is, according to the railway, water entering the track area between the Hackerbrücke and Hauptbahnhof stations. This was also reflected in the central stations, Karlsplatz (Stachus) and Marienplatz. During the interruption, there are sometimes significant delays throughout the S-Bahn network. In addition, premature turning points can be reached in the short run and in the short term. While the anxiety persists, S-Bahn Munich was initially unable to provide information. When the S-Bahn trunk line can be returned to service, Deutsche Bahn decides.

The main route goes largely underground through the center of Munich. Every day about 1000 trains travel on the main line. There are no two-lane traffic anywhere in Europe, according to Deutsche Ban. About 840,000 people use the S-Bahn every day. To alleviate the disturbance, the S-Bahn network was built in the state capital, the second line of highways. It is scheduled to go into service in 2028, two years later than originally planned, and will mainly go through a new tunnel.
