Get an all day pass for the train - about EUR10 (a bargain when a single ticket is EUR9.60? to the city).
Single ticket EUR 9.20. Day pass EUR 10. Unfortunately the airport is just across a zone boundary or the single fare would be EUR 6.90.
Another suggestion if you made the trip into the city would be a visit to the Deutsches Museum, one of the world's largest science museums. It's just a short tram ride from the city center (covered by your day pass). It has an excellent aviation collection, including examples of many famous piston and jet engines, quite a few notable smaller aircraft, and such things as the cockpit section of a 707 (painted in LH
livery although it's actually from an AA
707), and many other aviation-related items. You could easily kill a couple of hours just visiting the aviation part of the museum.
As someone else mentioned, if you're interested in cars, the BMW Museum, and BMW Welt (World) adjacent to it which is a very impressive display of their current models and related displays on their latest technology etc., are well worth a visit. There's an entry fee to the museum. The BMW Welt facility is free. The architecture of both is very impressive. Both are adjacent to their world headquarters office tower and their MUC assembly plant which is also open for tours but those have to be arranged in advance and you may not have time for that. The BMW facilities in MUC
are just a 10 minute subway (U-Bahn) ride from the city center, next to the site of the 1972 Summer Olympics.
