Flights to Munich

Oktoberfest, BMW... Not many cities combine tradition with modernity like Munich. The most direct flights to Munich from Australia will always include a stop in Asia or the Middle East, with a total flying time of around 23 hours.

What to know before you fly to Munich?

Munich is one of Germany’s largest cities and while German is the official language, you’ll find plenty of people who also speak fluent English. Oktoberfest and the spectacular Christmas Markets are two of the highlights on the local calendar, with flights to Munich in higher demand at these times of year.

Munich operates on the euro (€) and Australians citizens travelling to Germany for less than 90 days are not required to apply for a German visa. The food in Munich is one of the highlights, with traditional favourites such as weisswurst (veal and pork sausage) and schweinsbraten (roast pork) delicious with a Hacker-Pschorr Märzen or other Bavarian beer.
