Is the Munich Hbf Left Luggage storage facility operational 24 hrs?

I have a night train to Venice on a Sunday night at 11 30PM and would want to claim my bag at 9PM from the storage section that I intend to deposit in the morning.

    If the train is at 11.30 and you don't need your stuff, claim it at 11.20, but make yourself familiar with the train station so you find the right train. Especially if you have never used German trains before. Munich Hbf is very simple, all the tracks are next to each other. But always read the big board to see if the train is late or the platform got changed. Have fun in Munich. :-)

I asked Deutsche Bahn on Twitter.

Ja, die Schließfächer im Münchener Hbf sind rund um die Uhr zugänglich

That says the lockers in Munich HBF are accessible 24 hours a day.

    I have since been there myself. They are indeed open 24 hours per day.

According to the Deutsche Bahn AG railway information, the railway station is open 00:00–24:00 daily, and the station has Schließfächer, i.e. luggage lockers.

Luggage lockers
Luggage lockers at München Ostbahnhof (Source: Münchenwiki, GFDL). Lockers at Hauptbahnhof will look similar.

So, with an unmanned luggage locker, you can put away or retrieve your luggage at any time.

There are two types of luggage storage facilities in Munich Haptbanhof: short-term lockers, and long(ish)-term storage. The lockers are unmanned, and hence I assume that they are accessible 24-hours, or at least during the opening hours of the train station. On the other hand the long-term luggage storage service is manned from 08:00 - 20:00 (Monday - Friday) and 08:00 - 18:00 (Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays), according to the SNCF webpage on Munich Hauptbanhof:


The station has a Left Luggage office which you can find via the ticket hall. Opening hours: 08:00 - 20:00 (Monday - Friday) and 08:00 - 18:00 (Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays). Luggage lockers are also available. Lost property facilities are offered at the station and can be located via the ticket hall.

To locate the two luggage storage facilities see the station map.

  • The lockers are definitely accessible 24 hours, but on the station map you're linking to, I can only find the lockers. Where are the other luggage services you're mentioning located? Oct 28 '15 at 15:43
  • SNCF seems an odd source for information on Munich.

    @Tor-EinarJarnbjo Munich public transport also mentions a facility to store luggage for up to 4 weeks, as an alternative to the short-term lockers.

    @Tor-EinarJarnbjo If you click through the DB link I posted and look at the map of the station, it does list both services. But the list of services doesn't.
