Lounge Review: Lufthansa Senator Lounge Schengen II Munich

Lufthansa Senator Lounge II Munich

The Lufthansa Senator Lounge II Munich (G24) is one of three Senator Lounges at the secondary hub of Lufthansa. The Senator Café is also the smallest of the three lounges on the airport. Located opposite to the gates where most inner-German flights depart, the Senator Lounge Schengen II may be the best choice if you just want to be at your gate quickly. Apart from that, there’s especially one thing to criticize.

Check out our rating of the Lufthansa Senator Lounge II Munich (G24)!

The process of entering the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Schengen II Munich is very easy. The lounge is located on the ground floor, just a few steps away from all the gates and just two or three minutes away from security control.

There’s a little shop next to the entrance of the lounge

The attendants at the entry of the lounge were friendly and let my mother, who was my guest on this journey and had never been to a Lufthansa lounge before, and me in.

What we instantly noticed is the fact that there are no windows at the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Schengen II Munich (G24) which I found kind of sad as the sun was rising at this time of the day.

Seating in the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Schengen II Munich

The artificial light in the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Schengen II Munich is doing a good job making the lounge feel comfortable. The missing windows were a little issue for me nevertheless.

That said, the seating in the lounge was rather nice besides that issue. Next to the buffet, in the middle of the lounge, there’s a setup with dining tables, benches and some chairs.

To the left is the coffee bar with some high-top seating and further left also some more dining style seating and a little business corner. To the right of the lounge, there are some leather armchairs which looked very comfortable.

There’s also a little working area to the back of the lounge

Moreover, there’s a little area with some other lounging chairs which looked just fine for reading a newspaper. The seating itself was mostly modern and the design was appealing, but the lack of daylight is an issue at the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Schengen II Munich.

Buffet in the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Schengen II Munich

Something I truly love about Lufthansa lounges are the breakfast buffets. While I find the offering in the afternoon or evening to be okay, I’m a real sucker for the breakfast at especially the Lufthansa Senator Lounges.

Breakfast at the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Schengen II Munich

I’m not really a big breakfast person, but as I’m usually awake for some time when I enter a lounge, I’m getting a little hungry. That said, the choice in the Lufthansa Senator Longe II Munich was exactly as good as expected.

As hot options, there were some plain scrambled eggs and some bacon. The other choices included fresh grapefruits, different yoghurts and mueslis, fruit salad as well as a choice of rolls, croissants and pretzels. As usual for a German breakfast buffet, there were also plenty of whole fruits, cold cuts and cheeses available.

The coffee bar is truly perfect in the morning

The great buffet in the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Schengen II Munich (H24) combined with very attentive and friendly service made the minutes spend in the lounge very enjoyable. The breakfast definitely is something that makes Lufthansa lounges outstanding!

Entertainment in the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Schengen II Munich

When writing about the Lufthansa Business Lounge Athens, I said that the entertainment in Lufthansa lounges is truly amazing. After my visit to the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Schengen II Munich, I have to admit that I may not have been truly right with this impression.

Lufthansa Senator Café Munich Newspapers

The choice of newspapers was a little limited

It may have been due to the fact that my flight was on the 27th of December which also happened to be a Sunday, but the number of newspapers available was quite limited. Magazines were not openly available and when asking I was just offered an old edition of the magazine I requested.

The working area is equipped with modern computers

The Wi-Fi was once again very good thanks to the services of Deutsche Telekom, which provides very good internet in all Lufthansa lounges. There are also some flat-screen televisions showing news channels at the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Schengen II Munich. Overall, the entertainment options are definitely good at the Lufthansa Senator Café, but I was a little disappointed by the limited selection of newspapers and magazines on this particular date.

Bottom line Lufthansa Senator Lounge Schengen II Munich

The Lufthansa Senator Lounge Schengen II Munich is a little smaller than the other Senator Lounges at Munich Airport, which makes it feel a little more intimate. If there wasn’t the issue with missing daylight in the lounge, I’d be very happy with the seating. The buffet is, as always when it comes to breakfast in Lufthansa lounges, very good.

Entertainment was a little limited this particular time, but the choice of newspapers, magazines in addition to televisions and Wi-Fi is among the best in European lounges nevertheless. There’s no doubt that I’d return to the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Schengen II Munich, but for the next time I’m at the airport I’ll definitely try a different Senator Lounge and be it just for another review!

 

Curious what the world of lounges has to offer in comparison?

  1. Isn’t this the other senator lounge? The Senator Cafe is opposite the old business/senator lounge and really tiny. Btw: none of the 3 has any windows.

    • Hey Navid, you are raising an interesting question. I had this impressions as well, but as this is the only of the three with a coffee bar with barista (that’s how it is advertised on the LH website as well) I was pretty sure it must be the Café. Yet, LH doesn’t make it easy to identify which lounge is where 😀
