“I had an absolutely brilliant time in Munich Airport. I was in transit there for around 10 hours but there was plenty to do as you can sleep, shop and pretty much any other social activities are provided. However what I particularly loved about this airport is that fact that they have a Prayer room for each main religion. This is brilliant as many other airports just have a multi-faith which isn’t too good sometimes.”
