Lufthansa’s “old” first class lounge in Munich is still a great place to spend time in before or after your flight.
I first visited this lounge in December 2010, located in Terminal 2 near gates G21 and H21, and it hasn’t changed a bit. And that’s a good thing. While the new “Satellite” lounge is larger and and has extra amenities like a beautiful terrace, the two lounges are very similar.
As you walk in, proceed upstairs to the check-in counter, always decorated nicely with flowers.
Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Seating
Inside the lounge, you’ll find plenty of seating and rarely a crowd. Access is limited to Lufthansa or SWISS first class travelers and HON Circle members of Miles & More.
If you need a private place to make a phone call or work, there are also desks available:
Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Beverages
I usually start my visit to a Lufthansa First Class lounge with a cappuccino, and the coffee does not disappoint here. A beautiful coffee machine at the bar means just about any coffee drink you desire is available.
Speaking of the bar, I did not sample any alcoholic beverages during my last visit, but there was a nice selection available. You can also see the wine list on the menu below.
Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Smoking
A smoking room in the back of the lounge offers a separately-ventilated area to smoke. Free cigarettes and cigars are no longer provided.
Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Restrooms + Showers
Also in the rear of the lounge are restrooms and showers. No ducks were available! The shower attendant said she had just run out. Too bad…these were special edition World Cup ducks.
Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Dining
The lounge features both a buffet and a la carte dining. The buffet looked very nice–I loved the tapas available.
Here’s the a la carte menu, including a special daily menu:
But, as is always true in a Lufthansa First Class lounge, I ordered filet.

And always freshly-squeezed orange juice with it…
If your flight is departing from a remote stand, you will be driven to your gate. Otherwise, you’re on your own.
I love spending time in this lounge and deliberately schedule long layovers just to be able to spend more time here. If you have the pleasure of flying Lufthansa First Class, be sure to leave time to check out this lounge. The lounge is open daily from 5:00AM to 10:00PM.
