Munich Airport Reviews
Apart from Russia, this country has been the most populous European country in the world (population: 82 million). Next to the Czech Republic, the Germans are the second-biggest consumers of beer. They once held the title with the world’s youngest billionaire with their German Prince Albert II von Thurn und Taxis, with a net worth estimated at around $1.9 billion (USD).
When it comes to environment, Germany has been the pioneer of the ecological movement and green politics. But, of course, the term “Ecology” itself was originated from a German biologist, Mr. Ernst Haeckel, in 1866. Moreover, the Germans had been the world’s largest exporter of goods. By these facts alone, can we trust that Germany is also good at the travel business and transporting travellers internationally? Then, let’s check their international airport: Munich Airport
Since the airport was mentioned big, well, it is actually huge with 15.6 km², and because of that, the international airport of Germany has a large space to fill it with the following airport facilities and services:
To keep customers feeling fresh all flight long, shower rooms are available just a few steps from the arrivals area, located in the Central Area, Level 03 or in Terminal 2. What’s in it for them? Well, these six-unit exclusive showers are not for charity. The fully-equipped shower rooms – with toilet, sink and plenty of space to put belongings – cost 15 euros per usage. No worries, because fresh towels are provided along with shower gel and shampoo.
Accidents can’t be prevented, and MUC is prepared for that. Doctors and medical specialists are available throughout the airport. There are actually 10 medical establishments to look after passengers, click here to see the list. For the Shop and Dine list, click here.
To keep passengers updated with the current news, Airport TV is available on broadcast for CNN and the German news channel N24 everyday from 6 in the morning until 11 in the evening. Though, this is located only at the waiting areas in the departure gates (in the security area).
Like we mentioned earlier about beer with Germany, the Munich Airport has the the world’s first airport brewery: Airbräu, that serves seven different kinds of beer. Game On with the MUC’s “The Merkur Spielothek,” which offers games and gambling located in the Terminal 1-Level 3 and Terminal 2-Level 3.

The official site of the airport had been generous with these kinds of directional information. See the links below:
MUC is located 28 km (18 miles) northeast of Munich. The airport is the hub for the largest airline in Europe: “Lufthansa,” and also for Air Dolomiti and Condor. Known as the 32nd-busiest airport in the world, and yet again, keeping winning the “European airport championship” against other European airports in eight years, MUC has 2 concrete runways and 2 passenger terminals which accommodated 40,981,522 passengers in 2015.
Past and Present: The decision for building the new airport was made by the government of Bavaria in 1969. Initially, the airport was named as “Flughafen München Franz Josef Strauß” which was originated from their long-time Minister-President Mr. Franz Josef Strauß, wherein the airport was owned by “Flughafen München GmbH;” they branded themselves as “M – Flughafen München” or “M – Munich Airport.” But, since the airport’s name was too long, most people nowadays use the term “Flughafen München,” which means Munich Airport or simply MUC.
Future: Like other airports, Munich Airport had already made plans for the further expansion of a third runway and a satellite in Terminal 2 that will boost the capacity of the airport’s terminal. To see the latest news and updates regarding MUC, bookmark the link below:
