You wouldn’t expect an airport hotel bar to be trendy or interesting enough to actually be glad for the layover…and yet ! You clearly haven’t stepped into the Nightflight Bar in Munich.

In the large atrium that houses huge – we’re talking several stories high – palm trees, you will find plush red sofas, intimate nooks and, most importantly, a well-stocked bar. Sure, it isn’t the most ideal setting for a date, but when it comes to a quick drink alone or with your travel companions between flights? It does the job, and it does it well.

The staff is friendly and well trained, and you might even be able to push for a signature cocktail. We recommend that you stay on the safe side and order a classic Negroni, an ice-cold gin and tonic or even just a simple yet effective scotch. Why not indulge a little during your travels? An 18-year-old Balvenie would do just the trick. While you’re at it, peruse the menu and order a juicy burger or a fancy salad to soak it all up. No reason to rush, the eclectic mix of guests and travelers from all over the world that passes through will be there most of the night. We never really expected such a place to actually be lively enough to make us enjoy our evening thoroughly, and yet… After a drink or two you will completely forget that you are in an airport hotel. And wait until you see the impressive glass windows and ceilings turn bright pink come nightfall!

To really top it off, come back for breakfast the next morning, and enjoy this particularly interesting skyline in the early hours.
