Munich International Airport (MUC)
Restaurants in Munich International Airport (MUC)
The local specialty may be sausage and pretzels, but the growing German organic movement is also represented at the airport.
The airport outpost of Munich’s favorite coffee roastery and gourmet shop (the Dean & DeLuca of wurst) features strong dark brews and Weisswurst, a delicate white veal sausage served with Munich’s signature snack—a fresh-baked pretzel with mustard.
Wooden elephants and stone Buddhas announce the restaurant’s upscale Thai theme (though the menu is a mix of Thai dishes and sushi) with typical Munich extravagance.
A Bavarian restaurant with its own brewery and a huge indoor beer garden complete with slatted wooden chairs, Airbräu serves custom-made beer (try the Weissbier, a Bavarian favorite) at $3.30 for a healthy half-liter glass.
Terminal 1’s market-style restaurant and bar (the only 24-hour establishment in the airport) features sekt (German sparkling wine) and serves coffee, cakes, and 16 flavors of ice cream, as well as Bavarian, Italian, and Asian cuisine, in a bustling food-court atmosphere.
The famous Munich beer hall has a branch tucked away on a quiet end of Terminal 2.
