More information about Munich
The UK is well connected to Munich – In fact, you can book a direct flight to Munich Airport (MUC) from London any day of the week and be there in under two hours.
British Airways, Lufthansa and Airberlin fly out of London Heathrow (LHR), while easyJet operates flights from Gatwick (LGW), Luton (LTN) and Stansted (STN).
With healthy competition and a short flight time, it’s no surprise that cheap Munich city breaks are highly popular with Brits.
Not flying from London? No problem. You can also compare Munich flight deals with easyJet or Lufthansa from Manchester Airport (MAN), while other departure points include Southampton (SOU), Bristol (BRS), Birmingham (BHX), Cardiff (CWL) and Edinburgh (EDI).
Plan ahead if you want to get your hands on the cheapest flights to Munich.
Keen to see the Marienplatz Christmas Markets or sample skiing in the Bavarian mountains? Start looking in autumn. If you fancy summer in the city – the best time to see the English Garden – start looking in spring. The best deals are usually booked around three months in advance of your trip. A big exception, however, is Oktoberfest, when Munich goes beer crazy – if you want cheaper flights during the festival, you really need to book as far in advance as possible.
The Mayor of Munich taps the first Oktoberfest 2017 keg on September 17. That’s the official start of the world’s biggest beer festival, but those in the know will start looking for cheap flights to Munich long before summer. Unsurprisingly, this is the most expensive time to visit Munich, so flights won’t be the cheapest. Compare early to get the best prices.
Munich Airport has been named Europe’s best airport and the third best in the world for the past nine years in a row. It has its own brewery, free WiFi, a mini-golf course and a surf simulator in summer.
Interactive information screens point passengers in the right direction for flights, restaurants and over 150 shops. Feeling worn out? Cocoon in your own private Napcab, a sleeping cabin complete with bed, desk and playlists. If you fly in during winter, Munich Airport has an ice rink, hundreds of real Christmas trees and a merry Santa on duty.
Bus and train services run every 10 minutes into the centre of Munich.
