Location and layout

Munich's airport is 28 km (17.5 miles) northeast of the city, or 35-40 minutes from central Munich by train.

Terminal 1, which was built in 1992, is a long building that is divided into five contiguous "modules." Each module is a self-contained area with check-in counters, baggage claim, customs and immigration, and duty-free shops. Hallways and moving sidewalks connect the modules to a central area with shops, restaurants, and ground transportation. Passengers can connect between airlines without having to take a shuttle bus or train.

Terminal 2 opened in 2003. It houses Star Alliance airlines (including Lufthansa and United), and it's just a short walk from Terminal 1.

Parking garages are adjacent to the terminal, and tunnels connect to the München Airport Center shopping mall and the Kempinski Hotel Airport.
