Munich has a very efficient, punctual and safe public transport system. The closest metro station to the IAS building is "Garching-Forschungszentrum" (last metro stop on the north of the U6 line). "Garching Forschungszentrum" is in zone 2 (green zone), therefore if you come from the city centre you need to buy either a Single Ticket ("Einzelfahrkarte" in German) for 2 zones (5€) or a Day Ticket ("Tagesticket" in German) for 2 zones (also called Munich XXL, 7.30€). Cheaper group tickets (e.g. the "Partner Day Ticket") are available for groups up to 5 persons. You can find a detailed overview over the fares here.
