History[edit]

S-Bahn train of class 420 on platform 1
New station building

The line from Munich to Starnberg was opened on 28 November 1854.

Tutzing station was opened on 1 July 1865 along with the Starnberg–Tutzing line. On 1 February 1866, the line was extended beyond Weilheim to Unterpeißenberg. On 16 October 1865, the Kochelsee Railway was opened from Tutzing to Penzberg. The line from Munich extended from Weilheim to Murnau as a Vizinalbahn (local railway) on 15 May 1879 and this was followed by the opening of the extension to Garmisch-Partenkirchen by the private railway company, Lokalbahn AG, on 25 July 1889. The Kochelsee Railway was extended from Penzberg to Kochel am See on 23 May 1898. Tutzing station was integrated as a terminus in the Munich S-Bahn network on 28 May 1972.

Infrastructure[edit]

Platforms

Tutzing station has three platform tracks. Track 1 is the “home” platform (next to the station building) and tracks 2 and 3 are on a central platform. West of the platforms there are still two sidings without platforms.[3] Both platforms are covered and have digital destination displays. The central platform is connected by a subway to the home platform. The station is being upgraded to make it accessible for the disabled between March 2013 and November 2013.

The old station building is no longer used and is empty. In the new station building next to it there is a travel centre.

The station is in the area of the Münchner Verkehrs- und Tarifverbund (Munich Transport and Tariff Association, MVV).
