    There are 2 terminals at Munich Airport.

    Terminal 1 handles flights from all airlines except Star Alliance members.
    Terminal 2 handles Lufthansa and Star Alliance flights.

    Terminal 1 is divided in Modules A through E. Each module (except for E) is equipped to deal with both arrivals and departures. In practical terms, each module works like a small terminal on its own. Module E only handles arrivals. Terminal 2 is not divided into modules.

    Car Hire Pick-up & Drop off

    To pick up your car hire at Munich Airport, you must head to the supplier desks, which are located in the Central Area right outside Terminal 1. You just have to find the desk for the car hire company stated on your voucher and they will deal with all the paperwork and give you the keys to your car.

    They will further instruct you on how to return your vehicle. When you return the car, there will be a service crew inside the park that will check the car with you. You can then leave the keys and the paperwork inside the vehicle.

    Airport Facilities

    Munich Airport offers lots of opportunities for duty-free shopping and dining. On the central area outside the Terminals, you can even enjoy a typical German Beer Garden! There is wireless Internet throughout the airport, but it is paid. Besides shops and restaurants, the Terminal buildings also have several ATM machines and currency exchange offices. There's even a cinema, where travellers can watch aviation themed movies, free of charge.

    Transportation / How to get to the airport

    Munich Airport is located outside of Munich, but driving to and from the city couldn't be easier. You simply need to take the A92 Munich-Deggendorf Autobahn and take the Flughafen München exit. You get to experience a true German Autobahn as soon as you get to the country! The journey between Munich and the airport takes around 30 mns.

    Parking Tips

    The parking facilities at Munich Airport have LED displays indicating the number of free spaces. The parking levels are colour coded, making it easy to use the parking guidance system to find a free spot. There are payment machines on every level, and they accept money (coins and bank notes), credit cards and German EC cards. Instead of taking a ticket when you enter the car park and then having to pay on a machine when you exit, you can instead use your credit card to gain entrance to the park and again to leave. There are baggage trolleys in every level of the car park.

    Parking in Munich itself can be challenging, particularly in the centre. There are car parks throughout the city, indicated by a square blue sign with a P. These parks are a good alternative to street parking, which is in short supply and has time limits. An even cheaper alternative is to leave your car hire in one of the Park & Ride parks on the outskirts of Munich, and then take public transportation to the city centre.

    Street parking spaces are indicated by blue lines on the ground, and the maximum parking time is two hours.

    Parking fines are relatively low, but cars parked in such a way as to obstruct the flow of traffic or pose a danger to the public will be towed.
