Line S8 is a line on the Munich S-Bahn network. It is operated by DB Regio Bayern. It runs from Herrsching via Weßling, Pasing, central Munich and Munich East to Munich Airport station.

The line is operated at 20 minute intervals between Weßling and Munich Airport. Two out of three trains an hour continue from Weßling to Herrsching, so that the gap between trains alternates between 20 and 40 minutes. It is operated using class 423 four-car electrical multiple units, usually as two coupled sets. In the evenings and on Sundays they generally run as single sets.

The line runs over lines built at various times:

S-Bahn services commenced in 1992 as S-Bahn line S 8 between Munich Airport and Pasing. Later it was merged with line S 3, which had previously run between Nannhofen (now Mammendorf) and Ismaning. Since December 2009, line S 8 has run from Pasing to Herrsching instead of Mammendorf, taking over a section of the former line S-Bahn5 from Herrsching to Ebersberg.
