Taxis/Cabs in Munich
Your taxi fare is the result of pre-determined rates that are rather complicated to calculate. Here you’ll find an overview of individual rates.
It is rare that you’ll ride from point A to point B twice and pay exactly the same amount because waiting time also factors in the calculation, whether caused by traffic or not. To allow you to “guesstimate” anyway how much it will cost you to take a taxi in Munich, we have compiled essential information from the current Taxi Statutes for you.
