WHAT TO DO
Make the most of your time at the airport by seeking out Airbrau, a typical Bavarian beer garden handily located between Terminals 1 and 2. Enjoy a pint of home-brewed beer or if you’re running low on cash “the Hangman’s Lunch”, which is a glass of tap water, a bread roll and one cigarette. Munich-airport.de
WHERE TO STAY
Situated right in the centre of town, Anna Hotel is known for its designer furnishings by Donghia and its popular cocktail bar. The suite on the 11th floor also has floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic penthouse views over the city. From £116 per night, annahotel.de
WHERE TO GO
Petrolheads should book a guided tour of the BMW Museum, which is home to around 125 of the brand’s cars, motorbikes and engines. The tours take you through the history of the company in an hour and a half in either German or English. From €13, bmew-welt.com.
WHERE TO EAT
Find schnitzel and wurst unappealing? Then head to Chopan, a caravanserai-style restaurant that’s a reflection of Munich’s huge Afghan community, serving lamb, lentils, rice, spinach and flat breads by the light of coloured glass lanterns. Chopan.de
