You can spot your first snow-dusted peaks on your descent into Munich Airport. Bavaria's capital is nestled on the Northern ridge of the Austrian Alps, just a few hours from Tirol's most sought-after winter resorts. This makes Munich Airport Lufthansa's "Mountain Hub" - and indeed there is a whiff of Alpine luxury in the air (it's Europe's only 5-star airport).
The nonstop connection between Miami and Munich brings Floridians especially close to Tirol's winter paradise. Lufthansa takes you from Miami International Airport to Munich Airport in approximately 10 hours and lets you arrive well-rested thanks to their excellent service. Fall asleep in the Florida heat and wake up in the legendary powder-dusted Alps! Lufthansa offers daily service from November 4th to January 21st and six flights per week (except Tuesdays) from January 23rd.
Getting from the arrivals hall to the slopes of Tirol is quick and convenient, with ground transportation options for all budgets. Shuttle buses take you directly from either one of Munich's two terminals to various ski resorts and drop you off at your hotel for ultimate comfort.
Before you speed off to Austria, refuel at the airport at Airbräu, a cozy restaurant with its own brewery. Complimentary WiFi and Recreation Areas with reclining seats make waiting for your return flight and entertaining.
If you fly from the Star Alliance Terminal 2 head to the satellite with the central marketplace and the Bubbles Bar with views of the tarmac - they're both worth a visit!
