    Transfer info

    In Terminal 2, constructed exclusively for Lufthansa, the airline and all its partners are together under one roof.

    The two terminals are approximately 10 minutes’ walking distance apart.

    If your luggage is checked through for your connecting flight, you can use the shuttle that travels between the two terminals. The service is free of charge. Please follow the signs in the terminals.

    If your flight connection has been booked by your travel agent or your airline on a single ticket, your airline will automatically allow sufficient time for a seamless transfer.

    If you are planning to book two separate tickets (so called „Self Connecting“), please include sufficient time to clear checkpoints and to cover against potential delays of your inbound flight.

    In any case, please consider walking times at the airport plus additional time that might be necessary to clear security and immigration checks. If necessary, also include sufficient time for claiming your luggage and checking it in again. Please also expect queues in front of the checkpoints at peak times.

    Due to legal regulations, you will possibly have to pass through several security checks while going through the transfer process. Be prepared to pass border controls in case the airport you flew from and your destination are not both within the Schengen Area.

    For a comfortable transfer, and to ensure that you catch your connecting flight, it is advisable to leave plenty of time!

    Hall F is a separate building located between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. You can reach the building only on foot via the public area. Transfer passengers with connecting flights in Hall F should first follow the signs Exit/Hall F in the arrival terminal and then follow the signs to Hall F.

    Wifi is free of charge in the waiting areas of both terminals as well as the Munich Airport Center.

    The airport’s Meet & Assist Service is available to pick you up at the arrival gate and accompany you to your departure gate to make your transfer as quick and smooth as possible.

    All information for transfer passengers is also available on the airport’s website (munich-airport.de).

    Getting around

    Public Transport

    As with other major German cities, Munich has a peerless public transport system. Its U-Bahn, S-Bahn, tramways and buses are run by MVV (www.mvv-muenchen.de). Tickets work across all forms of transport. Single tickets must be validated either on the platform or, in the cases of buses and trams, once you board. Visitors should pick up a CityTourCard to get discount travel and money off at various key sights.

    Taxis

    Cabs can be easily flagged down in the city, just look for the lit signs. Taxi ranks can also be found in key areas of the town. Round up the fee, but don’t worry about tipping excessively.
