Very Easy. Also, when you come out of baggage claim you'll see a ticket machine on your right while still in the terminal and following the signs for the train. This machine took our US credit card without a hiccup. There are also ticket machines on the platform at the train. There's also an ATM (Geldautomat) a little bit down on the right just after you exit the baggage claim area - it was hard to spot.

The tickets come out of the machine prevalidated for the day of purchase, so there is no need to have them punched in the validation machine on the platform - indeed they don't fit, and we watched dozens of people trying.

Rolf picked my wife and I up on June 30th when we were on vacation (no ED, but I did rent a Z4 from BMW Welt BMW on Demand). I hope he's well! If anyone hears more about how he's doing, please share with the rest of us.

Our pick-up was on 9/19. Rolf did not respond to emails that I sent a few days before to confirm. I booked him in July. I called his cell from the airport and a woman answered. She did not speak English but mentioned his name. So I am concerned for his health. We walked a few hundred feet from where we were supposed to meet him (in front of Edeka at Terminal 2) and got a cab to the front door of the Welt for 56 Euro. When we dropped the car off this past weekend we bought the 20 Euro train ticket to get to Munich and back to the airport. We stayed at the Kempinski Airport Hotel the last 2 nights of our visit. The entrance to the Kempinski is across from and down a hundred yards from the airport drop-off location. Since it was Oktoberfest the trains were very crowded They should not be crowded though if you get on at the Airport. Don't know how close the train stops to the Welt or whether you would have to change trains. Both S1 and S8 take you to the Center of Munich.

I'm sorry to hear that Rolf has a major health problem and I hope that he recovers soon.

During our ED In May last year my wife and I were impressed when we found Rolf waiting for us with his scooter, which is apparently what he uses to get around the airport. He seemed to be in good health and good shape then, lifting our bags onto his cart and loading and unloading them from his car.

Here's a picture of Rolf goofing around in the lobby of the Munich Marriott. I asked him to pose with me for a picture and he grabbed the sign from the concierge desk at the last minute:

I actually just spoke with Rolf on the phone today. He is in the hospital and told me that he is in very bad health and that he is lucky to be alive. Im not sure exactly what kind of problems he is facing but it doesn't sound good. I hope he gets well soon. He said that he will be unavailable for at least the next 3 weeks maybe more, but that Peter is still available to provide transfer service.

I'm very sorry to hear this. Rolf picked my wife and I up from the airport on September 2nd and he provided an amazing amount of information, including a map of Munich, where to go, where to park, what to eat, how to use the subway, etc. I hope he gets well fast.

I just received an email from one of my clients who wanted to share this unfortunate news about Rolf. I see that a thread has already been started..

Rolf is a genuine/official Bimmerfest institution. I will pray that there will be a positive outcome...
