It sits a little more than 17 miles outside of Munich, and serves as a hub for Lufthansa. It’s the second most important airport in Germany, behind Frankfurt.

More Information on Munich

Munich is Bavaria’s capital city, and the third-largest city in Germany. While most people will have heard of its world famous annual Oktoberfest celebration, the good news for travelers is that Munich is a city that deserves to be visited year-round. It is a city that Germans love, so it’s no wonder it’s popular with tourists as well. With plenty of beautiful architecture and nice museums to see, its proximity to some of Europe’s most beautiful scenic areas (both in and out of Germany) and its array of world class beers – what’s not to like about Munich? Probably only the high prices; but even penny-pinchers can have a great time in Munich.
