Munich Airport Reviews
Apart from Russia, this country has been the most populous European country in the world (population: 82 million). Next to the Czech Republic, the Germans are the second biggest consumers of beer. They once held the title with the world’s youngest billionaire by their German Prince Albert II von Thurn und Taxis, with net worth estimated at around $1.9 billion (USD).
When it comes to environment, Germany has been the pioneers of the ecological movement and green politics. But of course, the term “Ecology” itself was originated from a German biologist, Mr. Ernst Haeckel in 1866. Moreover, the Germans had been the world’s largest exporter of goods. By these facts alone, can we trust that Germany is also good at travel business and transporting travellers internationally. Then let’s check their international airport: Munich Airport
Munich Airport Reviews of Passengers
To start off, let’s check the feedback of the passengers. It seems that out of 146 Munich Airport reviews, the airport had harbored a total of 5/10 score rating. Not bad, but still not enough to consider as a good airport. However, it is noticeable that Skytrax had recognized MUC as a 5-star airport. But given that acknowledgement by World Airport Awards, customers are complaining about the lack of transport facility throughout the airport.
One reviewer on 1st of March 2016 said that MUC is one of the airports that she doesn’t like at all. It was too big, that she had to walk kilometers from gate to the baggage claim area then the exit. And upon exit will start another agony with S-Bahn, a rapid transit railway system in and around Berlin. Prices are high. On a positive note, she mentioned that services are good since they do their best to make travellers feel comfortable. In this review, she gave Munich Airport a rating of 6/10.
Since the airport was mentioned big, well it is actually huge with 15.6 km² and because of that the international airport of Germany has a large space to fill it with airport facilities and services:
To keep customers feeling fresh all flight long, shower rooms are available just a few steps from the arrivals area, located in the Central Area, Level 03 or in Terminal 2. What’s in it for them? Well, these six unit exclusive showers are not for charity. The fully equipped shower rooms with toilet, sink and plenty of space to put belongings cost 15 euros for usage. No worries, because fresh towels are provided along with shower gel and shampoo.
Accidents can’t be prevented and MUC is prepared for that. Doctors and medical specialists are available throughout the airport. There are actually 10 medical establishments to look after passengers, click here to see the list. For the Shop and Dine list, click here.
To keep passengers updated with current news, Airport TV is available on broadcast for CNN and the German news channel N24 everyday from 6 in the morning till 11 in the evening. Though this is located only at the waiting areas at the departure gates (in the security area).
Like we mentioned earlier about beer with Germany. The Munich Airport has the the world’s first airport brewery: Airbräu, that serves seven different kind of beers. Game On with the MUC’s “The Merkur Spielothek” which offers games and gambling located in the Terminal 1-Level 3 and Terminal 2-Level 3.
