Hi Mark, there are two train lines that serve the airport: S1 and S8. The time it takes depends on the train you grab, but it's either 40 or 45 minutes to Karlsplatz, so not much difference. Frequency depends on day and time of day you're traveling, but call it on average every 15 minutes per line and they're staggered, so a train is likely every 10 minutes. Google Maps is pretty accurate on train information and if you use the MVV app you can buy your ticket on your phone instead of at the machine on the platform. The ticket from the airport to Munich is 11.60€. If you're going to be traveling on public transportation more that same day, consider the Airport-City-Day ticket. It's 13€ and covers your trip from the airport as well as all trains and trams in the city till 6 am the next morning.
