Rolf not responding to emails!

I'm wondering if anyone has some current info about Rolf's status. I contacted him, initially, about a month ago to book pick-up service at the airport. He responded right away.

However, I have emailed him 3 times over the past week to confirm and I've gotten NO response! I'm starting to panic a little.

Anyone?

Thanks.

I believe he's currently on vacation in Spain with his family. If you had confirmed months before, you'll be OK. Peter is just as reliable IMO.

Peter picked us up on 9/6. I asked him about Rolf because Rolf had initially emailed me that he would be on vacation in Spain past our pick-up date, but later I saw someone post that Rolf was picking them up a little before 9/6. Peter said that Rolf was ill, I was unclear whether he had gone to Spain at all. Peter did a good job for us, pointing out sights along the way and providing a lot of sightseeing suggestions, and took us to ADAC on the way to the hotel to get maps, vignettes, and vests.

Ah, Catch 22. Peter is arranged through Rolf. However, Rolf gave me Peter's phone number in case I needed to contact him directly. I don't want to post it without his permission, but if you want to PM me, I don't think he'd mind me giving it to you, seeing as Rolf is not responding.

Take the Lufthansa Airport bus to the Hauptbahnhof then a taxi to your hotel and put 20 extra euros in your pocket. You don't need Rolf to hold your hand or armed parking protection. Munich is the safest city in Germany if not the safest city in Europe not a Mexican border town.

Rolf does literally take 4-5 vacations a year. Unless you have a lot of stuff, try public transportation.

Rolf and Peter no show

Confirmed with Rolf a month ago, he nor Peter were there today when i arrived. I looked for an hour but no show. So don't waste your time with him. Just pay 10 euro for a train into the city.

Peter picked us up on September 10. He was great. Not only did he drive us to our hotel pointing out the sights, but he stopped at the German Auto Club so we could buy our vignettes and stopped at the train station so we could exchange our dollars for euros. Yes, we could have taken public transportation, but we had 4 bags of luggage. Peter was well worth it.

No-shows and no email replies. This is concerning. I've got him in mid-October. Has anyone used him lately?

I worked over email with Rolf to schedule before he went on vacation. Peter picked us up, on-time, on 9/7. He had a long list of folks that he was picking up - written on paper he had in his pocket - so he could not take us to the Welt on the delivery morning (was not planning on that anyway).

I too hope that everything is OK. Peter was great, including the run up to 120MPH in his diesel 3r wagon. Should have seen the look on my wife's face...welcome to the autobahn!

Rolf was supposed to pickup me up yesterday, so make sure you have a backup plan to get to your hotel. The train ride is 35 minutes to Marienplatz but was easy and clean.

Rolf no show

I arrived on Friday am. Had a pickup scheduled with Rolf. He was a no show. I called his contact number and a woman answered. She said he was at the clinic in Broken English.
My best interpretation was he is I'll. Hoped on a taxi. 60 euros to Westin Grand Munich.
Not too bad. I hope Rolf is ok, I'm sure he is a nice man.

Lufthansa Airport Bus, S-bahn or taxi are all great ways to get to central München or the Welt. Who wants to start off their ED fretting over finding and locating Rolf/Peter/Elmo, or worse yet, wasting an hour for a no-show?

I must have done this >50 times from the München (and Frankfurt) airports: try out public transportation and relax

Picking up now and Rolf was a no show this last Friday, 21. I hope he is ok. We confirmed last week. Lufthansa bus transport works great to the main train station.

I guess that I won't count on Rolf showing up for my pickup this Friday. I will miss seeing him again if so. I hope he is well again soon.

Personally, I think Rolf's services were worth every Euro he charged us. A very, very nice guy and very accomodating. I've taken the train from the airport into town on numerous occassions and while it's very efficient and fairly cheap, having a "chauffeur" meet us at the airport, haul our bags and get us right to the front door of the Welt was much more pleasant and stress-free. Especially since we were picking up the car the same day we flew in. Also the fact that we lugged our 82 year old mothers along on the trip meant that they didn't get left behind in the mad rush to pickup our new car.

I agree with Gluhwein. I can find another way from the airport without an issue but I am still disappointed as I had talked up the experience with Rolf to my Dad (co-pilot on this trip). Of course Rolf's health is more important than my airport to munich travel experience...

Rolf

I wish him a quick recovery. Glad to see the posts since I had sent multiple emails with no response. Does anyone know what a Taxi would cost to the Welt? What is the cost and the time to the Welt on the train?

I haven't done the taxi before but someone else noted around 60 euros to their hotel earlier in the thread. I did just research the train and there is a 20 euro "partner" airport-city day ticket with which up to 5 people can travel all day (unlimited) on the MVV network. More info here:

We took the train to our hotel on Sunday. It is easy. Take the S1 or S8 to the city center from the airport. You can transfer to the underground train to Olympia Park, where the welt is. Only 20 euros for five or less people.
