The tourism office has a website "München accessible for all!" with lots of information. For assistance at the airport: Information about „barrier-free traveling at Munich's Airport“ as well as the brochure „Barrierefrei“ can be found here: www.munich-airport.de/ .. /barriere.. or phone +49 (0) 89 / 9 75 00 and Flughafen München GmbH, Postfach 231755, ...

You should enter the Schengen area and get an entry stamp in Munich. I never had the occasion to connect in Munich but Schengen flights typically depart from another area in the airport and are not subject to any systematic passport checks on arrival, hence the need for a border check in the first airport in the Schengen area. That's also why “transit ...

Presuming you are arriving from a non-Schengen country then you will not need to pass through immigration in Munich. You will remain air-side, although you may need to go through security depending on which terminal you arrive in/depart from. However even if you do need to clear immigration in Munich you'll find it very quick and easy (presuming you come ...

First, your baggage will be checked through, and if you miss the connection, Lufthansa will put you on a later flight at no extra cost. Since you arrive early and there are many flights between Munich and Paris, it will probably be only an hour or two later. You will have to go through immigration and possibly security, but at 6 AM there probably won't be ...

It is interesting to me how different it is to transit in Munich and in Frankfurt. I have had 60 minute transits in Frankfurt that I made only by butting to the beginning of lines (showing people my boarding pass and begging them to let me go first) and running, and not getting to go to the bathroom or buy a drink, and still only just making the flight. But ...

I’ll mainly answer the ‘how do I get to Marktoberdorf’ part of your question. The easiest method is by rail and generally you have two slightly different options. The train station of Munich airport is somewhere between the terminals. It is marked by train signs and, as you get closer, by a white capital S on green background (the symbol of Munich suburban ...

The S-Bahn certainly starts that early, as you can check yourself at DB BAHN - the stations are called "München Hackerbrücke" and "München Flughafen Terminal". You can use either the S1 (41 min) or the S8 (42 min). If you use the S1, make sure that you enter the part of the train going to the airport, it will be split on the way. Bus arrivals are subject ...

If you bought the ticket directly from Lufthansa or some reputable website they will get you there. If you miss your connection, they will re-book you to the next available flight and may put you in a hotel overnight. If you have booked your ticket on some no-name website, this may be a problem. 45 minutes is awfully tight for a connection. Flights from ...

This comes down to whether Singapore Airlines is able to check your bags through despite the two separate tickets. They are not required to do so under Star Alliance rules, but they're generally known to be on the more generous side, compared to some airlines that will absolutely refuse to do it. Make sure you have all the ticket information for your ...

Where exactly would I be clearing immigration? Munich. The LH agent must have misunderstood something. The MUC-TXL flight is an in-Schengen flight and there are no facilities to separate people cleared to be in Schengen and those who haven't so you must be cleared first. Your bags go all the way through, you will pick them up in Berlin, maybe that's what ...

Assuming that you have the right to enter the Schengen area without any additional hassle, 10 hours is more than enough to go to the center, hang out there, even do some sightseeing in case you've never been to Munich before, then return and safely catch your onward flight. There's a direct train/s-bahn connection to the airport that takes around 40-45 ...

The Minimum Connection Time between flights landing in Terminal 2 (Lufthansa) and flights departing from Terminal 1 (Vueling) is 45 minutes. Thus technically this is a valid connection. However valid connection does not mean that you will make your flight - it just means that the airlines will let you book such a connection when booked on the same ticket. ...

Depends on your status and ticket type(s). Access rules are fairly complicated: See https://www.lufthansa.com/us/en/Lounge-types-and-access In "most" cases (business class ticket and/or Star Alliance Gold), you will need a same day departure boarding pass to access the lounge. So if you already have a boarding pass for your connecting flight when you arrive,...

As the other answers have already mentioned, your mode of transport of choice is the suburban train, S-Bahn, identifyable by a large white S on green background. You will arrive at the central bus station or ZOB in central Munich which is not far away from the central station and town centre. It is located exactly beside the Hackerbrücke suburban train ...

You didn't include which weekday you are going, but looking for Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week shows that service on the S-Bahn starts well before you arrive in Munich. From the bus stop (I suppose you mean München ZOB) you have to get to München Hackerbrücke which should take about ten minutes by foot according to Deutsche Bahn, and then you can ...

No, you do not need a boarding pass to take the bus from T2 to T1. I called Munich airport to confirm this, and while they don't like it, it will be OK if your partner explains the situation to the Condor check-in staff. However, given that you don't have a visa, you may well not be allowed to board a plane, since you have two separate bookings and the ...

You are transferring from a flight from a non-Schengen location to a flight to a non-Schengen location. Your passport will be checked, so you need to have it and a valid visa if necessary. You may need to have a copy of the documents that you needed to obtain the visa, such as your ticket or boarding pass for your onward flight (proof of onward travel). ...

There is probably only one airport in the world where you can do a 30 minute international -> international transfer - and that's Munich! The airport has a "minimum connection time" (MCT) of 30 minutes for certain cases, and has a number of things in place to make such a connection possible. However as is always the case with minimum connection times, that ...

If you booked this connection at once, there is no reason to be concerned, Lufthansa will take care of you in any case and wouldn't sell it if they did not think it was doable. An earlier question on this site confirm it should be OK in Munich even if 45 min is obviously cutting it close. Luggage, check-in and, most likely, security inspection will be taken ...

Munich airport allows International to International transfers without having to pass through passport control. There are however a small number of countries that may require a visa to pass through the airport, even if you are not going through passport control - and that includes Turkish citizens.

According to the Schengen Visa Code: Nationals of the third countries listed in Annex IV shall be required to hold an airport transit visa when passing through the international transit areas of airports situated on the territory of the Member States. According to the German Embassy in India, Indian citizens also need to obtain an airport transit ...

Immigration happens in Munich (i.e. where you are first arriving in the Schengen area). Two hours should be enough time to pass through immigration and change planes. If both of your flights are on one booking in fact Lufthansa will get you on a later flight to Dusseldorf in case of delays and deems that time enough since they were willing to sell you this ...

I would like to know if there is a way for me to check in my luggage after collecting them within the secured area. Or do I need to go out of the secured area and check in the luggage separately? If you have to recheck your bags, there's no way to avoid leaving the secure area of the airport. You have to go through customs, recheck your bag, and then go ...


4

To be precise: Luggage pickup is already outside the secured area, so if you have to recheck your luggage, you have to leave the secured area before you collect it. Even if your luggage can be checked through, I would consider leaving the secured area if you have almost 5 hours in transit. At Munich airport, everything (eateries, shops) within the secured ...

When an airline sells you (or a re-seller) tickets for a multi-stop flight, they imply that it is reasonably possible to change planes. Brussels Airport is not very large (in comparison to, say, Atlanta), so walking distances are reasonably short. Nevertheless, for any connecting flight, it's usually a good idea to go straight through all security controls ...

If the booking system offered the connection, it is doable. Also, if I remember correctly, LH is using the same terminal for all their flights, so you would not have to change terminal. The connection is tight, and there are chances that you won't make it. You will then be automatically booked on the next available flight. If the baggage makes it but you ...

I have changed planes at Munich coming from nonSchengen - eg Canada - headed for Schengen and while I had to line up and clear customs I did not have to claim my baggage. It added only 5 or 10 minutes to the transfer.

You will arrive and depart in Terminal 2 which was specifically designed for short transfer times down to 30 min. There are even extra cars which take you directly from plane to plane (via security) if needed, see: http://www.munich-airport.de/en/consumer/aufenthalt_trans/airportstop/minconntime/hcc/index.jsp Most likely you will arrive in Terminal 2, ...

As Henning Makholm says, there is a transfer bus between the terminals. One half of the bus is for passengers in the Schengen sector, the other half for passengers in the non-Schengen sector. The halves are blocked off from each other by a glass wall, and at each stop (which is located either in the Schengen or non-Schengen sector), only the doors in the "...
