Munich “Franz-Josef Strauß” International Airport (EDDM/MUC)
The city of Munich
The city located in southern Germany, next to the Alps is the 3rd biggest German city. It’s also the biggest growing one in Germany and is a diverse and cultural city. Here you will also find a big variety of headquarters by big companies like BMW, Siemens, etc. The city also has some old churches and castles even though the second world war destroyed most of them. In the close distance, Munich also attracts people with the Alps and a beautiful region which is for example home to Neuschwanstein.
Munich “Franz-Josef Strauß” International Airport (EDDM/MUC) is the second biggest airport after Frankfurt Main International. It was opened in 1982 and grew ever since. Today about 100 airlines serve 200 destinations in 70 countries. The airport is owned by the state as well as Lufthansa which uses Munich as one of their HUBs.

About the terminals
Terminal 1 is owned by the state and serves all airlines, which aren’t part of the Lufthansa Group or Star Alliance. This terminal is getting expanded at the moment and is also used by Emirates A380, who connects Munich up to 3 times a day with it.

How it will look after renovation
Terminal 2 is the terminal owned by Lufthansa and is the by far better one (in my opinion). It serves all Lufthansa partners including the Star Alliance members and got expanded recently with a satellite terminal, which is connected with T2 with a self-driving underground train. Terminal 2 was also rated the best airport terminal in the world in 2017.
Munich is the only 5-Star rated airport in Europe (rated by Skytrax).
In a survey by Skytrax, where 12 million passengers where asked for their opinion, Munich International Airport got chosen to be the best European Airport 13 times in the past 15 years! It’s also rated the 5th best airport in the entire world!
Other airport facilities
Additionally, the airport evolved to a small city. Besides the airport itself, directly around it, you can find huge office and research facilities, leading eye surgery, hotels, a small hospital, and an event hall where for example tennis tournaments are played. Also, the airport is connected to the city via train and a highway.
