Lounge Review: Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Satellite
The Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Satellite might be one of the best lounges in whole Europe. In this extensive lounge review, I’ll explain what you can expect of visiting this lounge, including à la carte dining, the various seating options and more.
When flying Lufthansa First Class from Frankfurt to Dubai, I had access to the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Satellite prior to my connecting flight to Frankfurt. When I visited, the lounge in the main terminal was closed for renovations and thus, I was offered a complimentary limousine transfer to the beautiful new lounge in the satellite.
This lounge is just a few years old and offers several incredible features. It all starts with an easy and friendly check-in. After that, you’re on your own to explore the different areas of the luxurious lounge.
Seating in the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Satellite
The Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Satellite (K & L Gates) is L-shaped. Starting from the reception, there are a couple of seating arrangements on the way to the main area of the lounge. You can find very comfortable loungers in a modern style combined with a cozy atmosphere and great views.
Further into the lounge, you’ll find yourself in the “corner”, where there’s some more seating with several couches and further loungers. This area of the Lufthansa First Class Lounge feels a little more open. Here, you can also find two big flat-screen televisions showing news channels.
Another feature of this area are small working rooms with a working desk, a comfortable chair and a door. Here, you can have some privacy to work or do a phone call.
The main area of the lounge continues with some more seating of the same style and ends with the spacious restaurant, which offers a la carte dining on a couple of tables set for two people each.
Next to the restaurant, you can find the bar and even a smoking room, which offers an extensive selection of cigars and whiskeys.
Overall, I find the design of the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Satellite to be totally stunning. Everything is very modern, but feels cozy at the same time. Additionally, there are floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the lounge, allowing incredible views and making the lounge feel bright and airy. What a beautiful lounge!
Speaking of beautiful, it’s worth noting that the Lufthansa First Class Lounge in Munich also comes with a beautiful outdoor terrace with some seating. As it was a beautiful morning, I spent some time there to enjoy the views. While it’s a little loud, the terrace is a great place nevertheless.
During the day, there’s even a bar set-up here, so you can enjoy a drink of your choice while lounging on the terrace. If you are having trouble finding the lounge terrace: It’s located right next to the reception!
Dining in the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Satellite
Usually, I’m calling this section of my lounge reviews “buffet”, but when it comes to the Lufthansa First Class Lounge, “dining” fits the narrative better. You may either sit down in the restaurant or at any other spot in the lounge and the servers roaming around will approach you, asking whether you want to eat or drink something. There’s an extensive menu available for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
As I’ve been there for lunch, I went with freshly squeezed orange juice, a cappuccino and egg’s benedict. The quality of everything was immaculate and the taste was great, too.
Speaking about the service, I found it even better than in all Lufthansa First Class lounges in Frankfurt. It’s also worth saying that the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Satellite offers an extensive buffet, which had dozens of different breakfast options when I visited.
It’s not that you would need that additional buffet, but the options looked great and the choice reminded me very much of real luxury hotels like the Adlon Kempinski Berlin. Throughout the lounge, you can also find a selection of various snacks.
Last but not least, it’s worth noting that there’s a wide selection of premium drinks available in the lounge, ranging from champagne to tons of different spirits.
Entertainment in the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Satellite
I’m sure that you won’t get bored in the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Satellite. That’s not only because of the great restaurant, the amazing drink selection and the stunning views, but also because of other entertainment options. First and foremost, there’s a wide selection of newspapers and magazines in different languages.
The offerings are even better than in the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Munich, which already has an amazing amount of different magazines available. If you’re not into reading, you may want to watch TV on one of the flat-screen televisions (channels can be changed if it’s not crowded and you’d like to watch something different) or browse the internet.
The WiFi connection was very quick and worked well during my whole visit. Some of the work cubicles come with a computer as well if you didn’t bring your laptop.
Amenities in the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Satellite
It’s worth noting that the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Satellite is one of those lounges, which is more than just a “normal” lounge. For example, there are proper shower suites available, which are cleaned after each use.
Those showers are bigger than everything I’ve ever seen at an airport before and offer a great water pressure, comfy towels and good toiletries. You may even request a rubber duck with a Lufthansa First Class writing on it. You may also get any amenities like a toothbrush, just ask! There’s even a small kid’s corner in case you are travelling with little ones.
There are a couple of more features like books etc. available throughout the lounge. Just ask if there’s anything you are looking for!
Overall impressions of the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Satellite
The Lufthansa First Class Lounge Munich Satellite is one of the best lounges in the world, in my opinion. It’s better than the Lufthansa First Class Lounge Frankfurt A, more comfortable than the Qantas First Class Lounge Los Angeles and less crowded than the Qantas First Class Lounge Sydney. At the same time, the lounge offers a better dining experience than the Japan Airlines First Class Lounge Tokyo and offers an all-around incredible experience. In case you have the chance to fly the incredible Lufthansa First Class, I’d definitely recommend connecting in Munich (or in both, Frankfurt and Munich) to experience the incredible Lufthansa First Class Lounge in the new terminal!
