Munich airport Q&A

Where are the car hire desks?

Car hire desks can be found in both terminal buildings and vehicles are collected from a multi-storey car park next to the main airport buildings.

What should I buy at duty free?

There are all the usual international designer brands, from Burberry to MaxMara, while for home-grown gifts and souvenirs head to Herrmann Geschenke, where you'll find a range of über-German beer mugs, festive nutcrackers and traditional Bavarian attire. Football fans should check out the recently opened FC Bayern store.

Are there any cashpoints?

A number of ATMs are located throughout the two terminals. There are also banks on level three of the Airport Centre and Terminal 2 arrivals and departures halls.

Where's the best place to eat?

Grab a snack with a view at Horizont, located off the Skywalk rooftop viewing platform (which costs €2 to access). Tuck into a smoked paprika and pepper pork Bockwurst or a Berlin-style Currywurst and gaze out over the runways. For something a little more exotic, make for Mangostin (also in Terminal 2). Decorated with wooden elephants this excellent Asian restaurant serves sushi, noodles and curries.

The secret tip

For a behind-the-scenes airport experience, check in early and board a coach for a tour of the runways, hangars and engine testing facility - it takes 50 minutes to complete the eight-mile route. Or why not enjoy the last few hours of your holiday with a spot of pampering? Stop for a pedicure at Be Relax in Terminal 1 before visiting the hairdressers in Terminal 2 for a trim.

The big draw: Munich airport

Distance: 24 miles

The buzzing capital of Bavaria has something for everyone. Science geeks can get their fill of gadgets and gizmos at the Deutsches Museum, while culture vultures should make for the Residenz - a stunning testament to the wealth of the Wittelsbach dynasty. But if you prefer simple pleasures, give up driving duties for the afternoon and head to one of the city's many beer gardens.
