In 2022, business travel to Munich came in 8th position in our Your Travel Corporate Most Booked Destinations. Why might Munich be attractive to business travellers? There is a strong and diverse economy, with a focus on technology, finance, automotive and manufacturing sectors. The city is home to numerous multinational corporations as well as a host to several major trade fairs and conferences including BAUMA (construction machinery), EXPO REAL (real estate) and ISPO (sports). Munich is well connected internationally, positioned within the heart of Europe. These combined factors make Munich of high appeal to business travellers looking to showcase their products, network, partner or expand.
With such a wealth of experience of booking business travel to Munich, our business travel experts here at Your Travel Corporate have put together a crème-de-la-crème round up of the city. Read on to explore the best means of travel to Munich, our most booked hotels and suggestions for your downtime.
The Eurostar is not easily connected to Munich so our advice is to fly for all business travel to Munich. A simple, direct flight from London can get you there in just under two hours. Business travellers can fly direct from London, Edinburgh or Birmingham. We most commonly book British Airways or Lufthansa our clients. Both airlines offer at least one daily flight (if not more) from London Heathrow. Lufthansa, the largest German and European airline provide business travellers with the most choice.
Lufthansa and British Airways each do well in terms of service. We have never had an unhappy client after flying with either. That being said, neither airline trump rankings for business class seats. British Airways have updated their business class product with the Club Suite which has rolled out across much of the fleet since this 2019 overview. Lufthansa business class is perfect for travelling in pairs. However, as a solo flyer the lack of privacy is outdated and doesn’t compete with other airline business class cabins. You can directly compare British Airways and Lufthansa over in our Airline Hub.
