Ihr Team vom „Hotel du Train“

The Fahrngruber family accommodates travelers in the 3rd generation in the heart of Munich, in a prime location.

Our “Hôtel du Train” (Hotel the Train), dedicated to the theme from Agatha Christie’s “Orient Express” with high quality furnishings and attention to detail, will take you on a journey on this legendary and world famous train.

At one time, the hotel exclusively offered single rooms for business travelers from all over the world. This peculiarity of the single rooms inspired me to create a unique hotel concept from my passion for train travel and Agatha Christie’s legendary novels.
Each of our compartments is characterized by a theme of this legendary train.

Due to the particularly central location of the hotel, you can reach the Marienplatz, the City Hall with its unique Glockenspiel, the Opera as well as the Viktualienmarkt and the world-famous Frauenkirche, Munich’s landmark, in less than 10 minutes on foot.

The connection to the public transportation system U and S Bahn at Sendlinger-Tor is also within a few minutes walking distance. From here, Munich Airport can be reached in 40 minutes, the Riem trade fair center in just 20 minutes, and the Allianz Arena and Olympic grounds can be reached quickly.

The Stachus, Kaufingerstraße and Maximilianstraße, are in the immediate vicinity, and offer shopping fans everything their heart desires.

Get on board and enjoy your time in Munich. Das Hotel du Train – Central in München

COVID-19 Measures

Our protective measures for your safety

Dear Guests,
we do our best to give you certainty and a good feeling during your visit at Hôtel Du Train. We are working at full speed to implement and comply with the legal requirements and inform you here about the following protective measures:

All employees who come into contact with guests and food have been trained in advance as infection control assistants and wear mouth and nose protection during their work.

We ensure that there is a minimum distance of 1.50m between tables and have adjusted the seating arrangement in the breakfast room accordingly.

Transparent partitions made of Plexiglas provide additional protection against infection at the reception desk.

All tables and chairs are disinfected after use. Hand sanitizer dispensers are available at the entrance and in the hallways.

Used dishes, cutlery and glasses are cleaned after each use in industrial dishwashers at high temperatures.

Door handles and knobs, handrails and buttons, and card readers are regularly disinfected.

In addition to all of our measures, we also rely on the “cooperation” of our guests for implementation. We therefore ask you to accept the infection control measures ordered by the authorities and to support the employees in implementing them.
Questions about infection control can be e-mailed at any time to:


Press comments

“A new hotel is being built directly in Munich’s city center at Sendlinger Tor. The special feature: the Orient Express is to be recreated there as faithfully as possible – as are the stations of Paris and Constantinople.”

- Bayrischer Rundfunk

“Annoying when you get on the Orient Express and can’t get a compartment. At least that’s how Agatha Christie’s famous character, detective Hercule Poirot, feels when he boards the famous train from Paris to Constantinople at the beginning of the mystery novel Murder on the Orient Express. If Poirot were not a character from the 1930s but on the road in the present day, one could call out to him: Why don’t you book yourself a room in Munich instead of the train compartment?”
