- Lufthansa First Class Lounge in Munich
After finally arriving at the Munich airport, it was time to find the lounge. I was sleep deprived, hungry, and sure I smelled a little bit. The Munich airport was a ghost town, so I had no issues going through security and finding my way to the Lufthansa First Class lounge, which was on level 5 near gate H21. There was also an entrance on level 4 near gate G21. The lower level had the limousine service which I didn’t get to partake in. Rough life.
Once we figured out that I was privileged enough to enter the lounge, the service was top notch. They instantly asked if I wanted a sleeping room (was my delirium that obvious?), which I told them to hold for me. I wanted to shower and grab a quick bite to eat first.
The lounge was very nice and open, offering multiple seating options. I couldn’t wait to get cleaned up so I could enjoy myself a little. So I made my way to the back of the lounge where the showers were located.
I was very pleased to find a full bathroom with walk-in shower. I love me a good walk-in shower. The design reminded me of the Andaz 5th Avenue. Good memories.
After sprucing up and feeling a little bit better about my hygiene, I was off to grab a quick bite to eat. The First Class lounge had a self serve buffet and full service gourmet restaurant. Since I was tired, I opted to do a little self serving first.
There were plenty of options, including meats, cheeses, breads, salads, soups, and more. I decided on some sushi and lamb chops, complimented with some random strawberries. It was a cluster, but all very scrumptulescent.
I found some secluded seating to enjoy my snack.
Best seats in the lounge, in my opinion. Even stayed warm by the fireplace.
My next move in the lounge was to grab a nap, so I went to the front where I was led to my reserved sleeping room. I had a few hours before my flight, so I set my alarm on my iPhone and told the rep to come get me if I didn’t make it out of my room in 4 hours.
The sleeping room was very nice, but it was located near the entrance so I heard noises. I’m pretty sure I heard a dog barking, but I could’ve been dreaming. Overall though, it was a pretty sweet spot to sleep for a couple hours. The amenities weren’t bad, either.
I ended up sleeping a little over 2 hours. I felt recharged after my nap, so I answered a few emails and then even thought about hitting up the “cigar lounge.” Yeah, they have one of those. With top notch alcohol to pair with the cigars, too.
I opted to not hit up the cigar lounge, but instead go straight to the full service gourmet restaurant. I wasn’t necessarily hungry, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
I was served their standard bread and ordered a glass of red wine to get the party going.
For my main entree, I selected Wiener Schnitzel.
I thought I would go local, but it wasn’t very good. Maybe my palate just doesn’t have a taste for wiener schnitzel, but I thought it was average (not that I know my wiener schnitzel).
The wine, bread, and potato salad were very tasty, though.
I really enjoyed the few hours I had to kill at the Lufthansa First Class lounge. It was a great place to clean up, rest, and eat. The service was outstanding and accommodating.
Also, the lounge wasn’t overly crowded, so that helped in creating a relaxing environment. I left the lounge on a full stomach, rested, and with a tiny buzz.
Noob it up.
