The Lufthansa Munich Senator lounge by Gate 28 is the best of the four Senator lounges at Munich, but it often gets overlooked when passengers are hunting for the Munich Star Gold lounge, because the entrance to the other lounges are more obvious. However make no mistake, this is the lounge you should be heading for - because it has the big cocktail bar.

The Lufthansa Senator Lounge Munich G28 is and it is the main inter-Europe Schengen area lounge, and the central Munich Star Alliance lounge, and is often very busy with inter-Europe passengers. By contrast the non-Schengen lounge upstairs is much quieter. If itís too busy, there is also the smaller Senator Lounge G24, and the Senator Café nearby. There is a good Munich Lounge location map.

To find the Lufthansa Munich Senator lounge Terminal 2 by Gate 28, once through security turn left at the plaza, and left again as if you are going to exit Munich Terminal 2, and the Senator Lounge is the small glass door under the escalator. There is a security guard outside the door who will stop you if you donít have the right frequent flyer card, and then another desk where your boarding card is checked.

Once inside there is small corridor - with a Miles&More statement machine - and then you enter the main lounge itself, which is a large square. To the right is a ífieldí of swivel chairs, which always seems to be deserted, and then a larger area with squashy black arm chairs. These are very comfortable, and have power sockets (euro only) between the seats.

Straight ahead is a large wooden worktop, which is designed for using a laptop, with plenty of power sockets in the middle steel bar. Ahead is a small dining area, newspapers on the left, and then ahead a food servery, with the cocktail bar on the left. The bathrooms - such as they are - are on the right.

There isnít much natural light, however beside the cocktail bar on the left is a small light well, with a small glimpse of the real world outside.

The Lufthansa Senator Lounge Munich is quite a hike from the gates, and they don't always announce departures, so you do need to watch the monitor beside the bar and give yourself a little extra time to make your boarding.

Food

Food is OK in the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Munich G28, but itís no great shakes, as you might expect from a lounge where the longest flight is a couple of hours.

There is a hot section, with rice, curry, and generally a chicken dish in the evenings.

The salad bar is excellent, with various lard type dips, coleslaw, gherkins, cheese and ham.

The bread basket is particularly good, and the Gerkins are some of the best in Lufthansa lounges around the world.

Other than that there are nuts, packets of biscuits, and a bowl of fruit.

Bar

The main feature of the Lufthansa Munich Senator lounge is the large cocktail bar, which gets very busy in the evenings. It is fully staffed with a barman from early in the morning, and this is actually a bit of a drawback.

If you want anything, you have to ask the barman for it, except for sparkling wine: there is a wine cooler with three bottles of sparkling at the corner of the bar, but you have to ask the barman for a glass to start with.

Beer however is better, with two beer taps beside the food bar. There is Lowenbraw and Fransikamer beer (a German Wheat Beer)on draft, in logoed glasses.

Spirits and cocktails are handled by the barman himself, and there is a long list. If the cocktail you want isnít on here, the barman will happily make up something to your instructions.

Bathrooms

In lounge, with showers.
