With a recent short connection through MUC, I surprisingly had enough time to check out the Munich Lufthansa lounge. Thanks to the short distance to my gate, I was able to pop in for a quick pre-flight pint and enjoy a snack.
Where is the Munich Lufthansa Lounge Located?
I had no intention of writing this post as my layover was only an hour. After a delayed arrival and a sweaty jog to my gate, I was pleasantly surprised to see the Lufthansa lounge directly across from it. Ein Bier bitte!
I wish I could say this was pure luck however there is actually seven lounges at the Munich airport, all of which are located in terminal two. They are split between Schengen and Non-Schengen departures. This is essentially Europe and non-Europe except for a handful of European countries that are not apart of the borderless Schengen area. There are also three lounges reserved for first-class passengers.
As per Munich-Airport.com, here are the exact locations:
What Amenities Does the Munich Lufthansa Lounge Have?
I didn’t have long to enjoy my Bavarian brew, however, I did have time to note the Munich Lufthansa lounge highlights. Although small, the lounge boasts comfortable seating areas, workspaces, and showers. There is plenty of areas to relax and work with plenty of power outlet options.
What Is the Food and Drink Like?
As my flight was about to board I popped in for a quick drink. I love a good German Dunkel however, to my surprise, the beer selection was limited. The Munich Lufthansa lounge does have a full bar so I opted for a gin and tonic instead.
Food in this Munich Lufthansa lounge was better than most lounges I have visited. I arrived around lunchtime and found soup with accompaniments of chopped green onions and chili‘s as well as a selection of attractive looking desserts. There was a fresh salad bar as well.
What stood out for me with this lounge was the unique candy bar. I don’t think I have seen this anywhere else besides maybe Istanbul’s lounge.
From my quick visit, I can say it is one of the better lounges I have visited. With the letdown of Copenhagen’s SAS CPH lounge earlier that day it made me wish I had more time to enjoy this one instead. Something to consider if you are on the same routing. Given its Baravria location, the one disappointment is the beer selection.
