0 / 0

Touch down in Munich and hop over to Austria's mountainside! With 10 daily nonstop flights on Lufthansa from the US, Munich Airport is your perfect gateway to Innsbruck.

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 - like the ski paradise surrounding Innsbruck. Fly Lufthansa to Munich Airport, the premium connection to the mountains. Indeed there is a whiff of Alpine luxury in the air – as it's Europe's only 5-star airport - and 5-star airline.

USA to Munich to Innsbruck's Mountains

The nonstop connections Lufthansa provides between USA and Munich bring you especially close to the "Capital of the Alps." Innsbruck's unique combination of Habsburg culture and ski resort credentials make it an ideal getaway for travelers who want more from their winter vacation! With the award-winning services onboard Lufthansa, you will enjoy a direct flight to the mountains from 10 gateways in the US. Lufthansa lets you arrive relaxed and ready to enjoy the rest of your journey. Fall asleep in the USA and wake up in the legendary powder-dusted Alps!

5-Star Airport Experience

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 comfortable and entertaining.
If you fly from the Star Alliance Terminal 2 head to the satellite (Gates K + L) with the central marketplace and the Bubbles Bar with views of the tarmac - they're both worth a visit!

What's on the agenda when you arrive in Innsbruck? Begin your exploration in the old town at the Golden Roof, the city's most recognizable landmark. Walk the Medieval streets to the Imperial Palace, where over 500 years of Habsburg history come together in a flurry of opulent state rooms and the Giant Hall - a ballroom with 16 full-length portraits of Maria Theresa's offspring.

Just around the corner is the Hungerburg cable car, which takes you to one of Innsbruck's 13 surrounding ski resorts! Locals and visitors board with their ski gear right in the city center and find themselves in Alpine terrain within 20 minutes.
