Central coach station, Munich, DE

Transport hub linked to a hotel, shops, offices and an urban plaza

The central coach station is located on the site of a disused railway yard between Munich’s main station and Pasing. It has become a significant urban landmark.

The terminal area faces South and connects into an extensive pedestrian and cycle route network. A hotel, offices and shops are located on the upper level and connect to the Donnersberger Bridge, making an important crossing over the railway. Car parking and a nightclub occupy the lower ground level.

Access routes are arranged parallel to the railway yard. This allows for the kiss and ride zone, coach services and office, retail and hotel access to remain separated. The space-saving concept has left sufficient room for a generous urban plaza.
