Is Munich Airport open at night?

Munich's Franz-Josef-Strauss Airport never closes. It consists of two terminals which are separated by the Munich Airport Center. Here you will find numerous shops and information services. Therefore, you can go shopping, have fun on your way to the casino, or even take a shower.

In addition, two restaurants are open 24 hours a day for your meals. Also, you can enjoy a drink in a genuine Bavarian brasserie while taking advantage of the free and unlimited Wifi.

If you simply wish to rest and the lack of comfort does not bother you, the seats in the waiting areas of Terminal 2 have no armrests. You will therefore be able to lie down according to the available seats. For greater comfort, you can also go to the indicated rest areas, with reclining seats and footrests.

Hotels to stay at near Munich Airport

Find a hotel near Munich Airport

Resting, lying on a bench for an hour or two is doable. However, for a longer stopover, you may find yourself stiff before you even arrive at your destination.

You therefore need to find a real bed, with comfortable mattresses and pillows. There are two choices for this inside the airport, and many more outside. And the best in this case is a nearby establishment to sleep near the airport.

Nevertheless, hotel rates fluctuate according to the periods and the crowds. So don't hesitate to use a booking site to compare prices.

Nap Cabs

Terminal 2 has the advantage of rather spacious resting cabins, with bed, desk, air conditioning and internet access. There are twelve of them, spread over four areas of the terminal. Rates are per hour (two hours minimum) and vary according to the schedule (10 or 15 €/hour). In self-service, the Nap Cabs only accept credit cards and you can even book online.

Gärtnerplatz and Kunstareal

Gärtnerplatz is not a city, but a square in Munich. The district in which it is located is considered to be the trendiest place in the city. As the centre is almost completely pedestrianized and full of forbidden directions, we recommend taking the underground, bus or tram. They are frequent and criss-cross the city and its surroundings.

Not far away is the Kunstareal, the district dedicated to art. You can find works by Cézanne, Van Gogh and Raphael in the many museums and art galleries. For a breath of fresh air, you will also be close to one of the largest city parks in the world, the Englishcher Garten. In fact, it is larger than Central Park in New York. So don't hesitate to make a relaxing and attractive visit in this place.
