Munich International Airport

Munich International Airport (IATA: MUC; ICAO: EDDM) is the second biggest German airport and has two terminals. Terminal 2 is used by Lufthansa and its partner airlines from Star Alliance. All other airlines use the older Terminal 1. The Munich airport is located outside of Munich in a northeastern suburb. Due to the increased number of flights, the airport has expanded and now offers connections to most domestic airports in Germany, as well as many international airports elsewhere. Intercontinental destinations include Atlanta, Charlotte, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Chicago, Delhi, Mumbai, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, Seoul, Dubai, Doha, Bangkok and many others. If you are unable to fly to Munich directly, you can arrange a transfer via Frankfurt. Flight time from Frankfurt to Munich is about 35 minutes.

Munich Airport has been named the winner of the "Best Airport in Europe" award for the third year in a row in an international survey of close to eight million passengers worldwide. Passengers also ranked Munich #4 in the worldwide rankings behind Asian hubs.

The airport connects to central Munich by S-Bahn (commuter train) on the S1 and S8 line. The journey (single) costs €9.20 (or €10.40 for a day pass) or €18.80 for a partner ticket which is valid for upto five people, a train runs every 5 to 20 minutes and it takes about 40 minutes to get to the central station. For more information see the get around section. Lufthansa also offers an hourly bus to/from the main train station that is comparably priced (travel time can vary as subject to traffic).

Most major European cities connect to Munich by rail. Munich's Hauptbahnhof (main station) is conveniently located in the center of Munich. The Deutsche Bahn uses Munich as one of its main German hubs and has good connections to neighboring countries (Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Slovenia and Italy) and to all southern German cities.

The main station is west of Marienplatz (two S-Bahn stations) or a short walk away from the city center. The main station also has a traveler-friendly infrastructure including several restaurants, a tourist's bureau and a Deutsche Bahn ticket and travel agency office.

Highways from many directions lead to Munich, however they often get congested at peak times and on weekends, especially during the ski season. For day trips to Munich, it's probably best to leave your car in a Park&Ride car park (see the Get around section).
