The IC bus.

The IC bus travels directly from Zurich to Munich, supplementing existing trains so that you benefit from additional services. This means you can travel to Munich every two hours, on either the EuroCity train or the IC bus.

You need a standard-fare or supersaver ticket to travel on the IC bus. Information on the range of tickets available and on prices, reservations and terms and conditions can be found on our Germany webpages under International tickets: Germany.
