Lufthansa Senator Lounge Munich T2 gates H: very decent but small and lacking a little natural light

Like all the airline’s lounges, the Lufthansa Senator lounge at Munich’s T2 offers a very solid but unadorned service.

With just over two hours to kill between my arrival from Gothenburg and my departure for Tokyo, I’ll be heading for the Senator lounge in terminal 2 (non-Schengen) to pass the time, one of the few lounges the German airline has in its hubs that we haven’t yet tested, if memory serves me correctly.

You’ll find a summary of the articles about this trip to Australia at the bottom of the page.

Location of the lounge

Once through immigration control, the lounge is located on your left, after a short walk, at gate H24.

Not really in the middle of the terminal, but given its size and layout, everything is within reasonable walking distance, which makes Munich a very pleasant airport for connections, whatever the terminal.

Lounge layout and design

Just beyond the entrance is the buffet, which we’ll talk about later…

Then there’s an area rather dedicated to dining.

On the side, a less populated area.

Then a very pretty bar with tables opposite.

At the far end of the lounge is a lounging area where I’ll be settling in with some difficulty, as this is where all the passengers in search of peace and quiet sit.

There are also workspaces.

And last but not least, rest areas for sleeping more comfortably than on a seat.

In terms of design, we’re back to the classic Lufthansa lounge style – not fancy, but tasteful and reassuring.

Two complaints, however. First of all, it’s not that big, or rather, there’s not much room to sit compared to its size. Apart from a bay window in one part of the lounge, there’s very little natural light, especially in the last part. An impression certainly accentuated by the lack of sunshine on this December morning.

Catering

As is often the case with Lufthansa, the offer is varied and solid.

First, cereals, fruit salads, jams and yoghurts.

Then cold vegetables, cheese and charcuterie.

The usual pretzels – this is Germany, right?

The hot offer (given the time of day it’s the breakfast offer that’s in place) with the great classics: tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, mushrooms, sausages, potatoes

And finally, a hallmark of Lufthansa lounges: cookies and sweets.

Let’s move on to drinks.

Draft beer, as always with our German friends.

Soft drinks and bottled beers.

Water and soft drinks…with the fountain out of order.

The tea and coffee machine.

What about alcohol? An extensive range available at the bar.

Even if I prefer daytime buffets to breakfast, there’s nothing to complain about here, with its rich variety and good quality.

Facilities

The lounge has toilets, showers and lockers for storing your belongings.

Atmosphere

Not really noisy, but very crowded and not really relaxing, but that’s the time of day, in the middle of the connecting flight times.

Bottom line

As always with Lufthansa, a very solid performance, if not very sexy, even if I would have preferred fewer people. If you’re looking for something a little more dreamy, we recommend the First Class Lounge in the same terminal and, even better, the First Class Lounge in the T2 annex.
