Terminal 2, Munich Airport (Flughafen München), Germany
Based on Visit: 10 July 2022 approximately 21:00 to 21:30
This is my review of the Lufthansa Business Lounge Terminal 2, next to Gate H20.
This review is based on my trilogy of airlines on my business trip to Brussels – I was connecting in Munich having landed from Brussels, and was en route to Heathrow. Previously, I’d visited the Lounge at K-Gates – but was told I should allow plenty of time to get to H-Gates (where my Heathrow flight was departing). As I detail in that review, this was very good advice!
Whilst K-Gates have entirely Schengen flights transiting – H-Gates are for international flights, which since Brexit, the UK is now regarded as.
As I detail in my review of the flight back to London, this was a rather tight connection, so I didn’t have a huge amount of time in this Lounge.
As far as I am aware entry is only for either customers traveling in Business Class, or Star Alliance Gold members.
There is also the ever secretive Senator Lounge attached to this Lounge – but I didn’t have access – nor could I actually see it.
The lounge is open daily from 05:00 to 22:00.
How to Get There
This I am not entirely sure about if you’re coming from Security – but coming from the underground train system, it was up escalators.
Then it was through Passport Control.
Then once through I made a left, and it’s on the corner of a watch shop – close to Gate H20.
The lounge is reasonable in size, though small for an international lounge. It has a variety of places to eat, sit and work – unlike the lounge in K-Gates, there was also somewhere to sleep!
There is plenty of café seating for eating and drinking – but it was a fairly busy lounge, even on a Sunday evening (or night as it now was)!
Similarly to the K-Gates lounge, one of my favourite features about the Lounge was the ‘pods’ – perfect for working and taking calls.
Each ‘pod’ features variety of charging sockets, privacy screens – and a communal printer!
If you want to have some privacy on calls or work – there is also a ‘phone box’ which has a stool and table, with similar charging sockets. However, there are only around two of these that I could see.
Food and Drink
This lounge has a mixture of bar and self-service drinks.
There are beer taps with German beers, and also a separate station for wines and prosecco.
The tea and coffee is also self-service – and again interestingly had the spirits on a shelf next to it!
Food was self-service in this lounge, but there wasn’t a menu for hot dishes. Unfortunately, the self-service buffer was fairly busy and I didn’t get closeups for the offering – I was also pushed for time! It seems that catering did vary to the K-Gates, perhaps (in my view) to the K-Gates favour!
I found for Germany the food still seemed just about OK – which is certainly a compliment!
Given my short visit to this Lounge, I didn’t get to use the Wifi.
There are showers in this lounge, but I didn’t manage to grab any pictures.
This is reasonably sized lounge, but given that Terminal 2 was considered for the A380 – I’d be interested to see how busy this lounge gets!
There was a clear difference between that and K-Gates Lounge (such as the bar), so it seems Lufthansa had stepped up the offering for international travelers.
Let’s hope next time I get to stay longer (and finish the review)!
