There are now 266 destinations from MUC.

Frequently Asked Questions

Duty free shopping is when you can purchase goods that have had the duty/tax (usually taxes like import, VAT, and sales tax) waivered by the government, therefore reducing the prices that you would normally expect to pay in a standard shop or website. Duty free shops are usually found at airports or sea terminals, but you can also sometimes purchase duty free goods during international flights or on cruises.

Anyone travelling internationally (between two different countries) is eligible to purchase duty free items.

The term 'duty' refers to the tax that you pay if you bring a product from one country to another. i.e. if you bought some perfume in the United Kingdom, and then flew to Germany you might have to pay tax in both countries. Most governments do not charge the duty on products bought when you are leaving that country, which means that the customer doesn't have to pay the tax twice. This usually only applies when you are leaving the country, i.e. it is for export purposes only.

As the price for items bought in duty free shops often have the duty taken off the RRP, it can make them a lot cheaper than if you bought the goods in a normal shop. However, there are usually limits on how much you can buy on your trip, and these limits will vary from country to country, and also vary from item to item (i.e. there will be different limits on alcohol and cigarettes).

The most popular items in duty free shops are usually the products that are most heavily taxed, i.e. alcohol, perfumes, and tobacco. Duty free inventories will vary from country to country, and also from airport to airport. In larger airports, you may even find different prices in the numerous shops - remember it's always best to shop around! Make sure you check our database to see all the shops at each airport, and then you can invesigate the prices at each one.

Sadly, you can't just turn up at a duty free shop with several empty suitcases and fill them up with goodies! Restrictions will be in place, and these can vary from country to country. You will only be allowed to buy certain amounts of different types of products. Tobacco, alcohol, and perfumes are usually the products that are most likely to be subject to the stricter allowances. Make sure you check whilst purchasing, or else you run the risk of your items being confiscated upon arrival at your destination's customs.

No. Duty free is only available to travellers who are flying from one country to another country.

Yes. Many duty free shops will allow you to pre-order any purchases online before your journey. You will need your boarding pass and passport when you pick the items up from the airport shop.

Munich Airport Reviews

It was my first transfer flight, it was a pleasure on this airport :) Very helpful crew and grat signs on the airport.
- Mateusz Bednarski

There were only two queues to passport control for passengers from 2 simultaneous flights! I've spent about 1h 30min waiting for my turn.
- shelbalart

Most overrated Airport in the World , been here couple times , on transit and also flew to and From MUC . and on both Terminals waiting areas are just too small, had to wait in an Korridor Food in Transit Areas is just very expensive . Direction signs are sometimes very rare also Flight / Gate Infos which just can be found on very small screens... not my Airport
- Oliver Peitzmann



TERE IS A BIG DIFERENCE BETWEEN T2 and T1 facilities T1 is not at a five star airport level dirty ,old and unconfortable it.s a shame this discrimination
- Yves

The quality of Terminal 1 one is very low , dirty , lounges old and access to bathrooms in boarding lounge very bad . Refund taxe open at 6 when your departure are at 7 it,s short . Custom on time but global office never open on time
- Yves

WIFi registration too complicated. Why do I have to give all my personal details? Only one duty free and a snack bar T1. How to spend 3 hrs only with that?
- Pietro Alfe

Terminal 1 ist für A380 nicht ausgebaut, nur 4 passkontrollen un 2 stunden wartezeit auf das gepäck.
- Prassnigger walter

It's really the first 5 stars airport in Europe. Very good for transfer. Good services best beer:) free wifi without time limits.
