Munich International Airport / Flughafen München

The terminal is very spacious and bright.



























There is a huge square outside the entrance with a large canopy.







Terminal 2



Parking & Control Tower



Airplanes from the observation deck (2 euros)







From the gate : notice the smaller aircraft parked on the tarmac. Yet even more smaller aircraft are parked beyond to the left.

It seems so lifeless, so sterile. The dark sculpture hanging in the Lufthansa terminal reminds me of a dinasaurs' skeleton. This place needs color, plants, trees...PEOPLE.

But this airport is also cool, it has a maglev connection with the centre of Munich, or am I wrong?

Yes, you are wrong. But the maglev connection to the city center is planned and will hopefully be realized soon.

Munich airport is amazing (I was there in Aug. 2004), although not as large as major hubs. The interior design and detailing is very sophisticated.

Terminal 1 is on the right, Terminal 2 on the left. Enjoy!

The sculpture, sponsored by local carmaker BMW, is to symbolize the sheer precision of BMW steering even at autobahn speeds!

And the thinking behind the all-white interior is that enough color will be added by the people using the terminal, while the building itself stays in the background, so to speak, and just provides clarity of wayfinding.

I don't like the new terminal at all.

Its cold, sterile and unimpressive. Looks like an ordinary trade fair exhibitian hall. There is nothing of the charme of a great world airport. Alone the floor is boring as it gets.

It´s just the public check-in area that looks so sterile, the transit area is much nicer...

I like how they've got security there carrying machine guns strapped to their backs. It makes me feel very safe...

There is a Transrapid exhibition at Munich Airport to advertise its plans to build a maglev link :





http://www.toytownmunich.com/wiki/Tr...d_Airport_Link

Plans are now underway to build a high speed train link between Munich central station and Munich airport. This magnetic levitation "flying train" will travel the 37 km journey in just 10 minutes reaching a top speed of 500 km/h (310 mph). The first trains are scheduled to run in 2009 with a frequency of every 10 minutes. This will make getting to the airport an absolute dream. It's not certain, however, that the project will actually go ahead. The estimated cost of the Transrapid link is a massive €1.6 billion. Of course many people think the money could be better spent elsewhere.

Those are BGS (federal border protection) officers. You can see them at German borders, train stations and airports. They can be quite heavily armed in contrast to your ordinary police officer.
