Especially popular: the central marketplace surrounding the apron tower, with a wide range of Bavarian and international specialties on offer. In its first year of operation, the "Hans im Glück" outlet served 55,000 gourmet burgers. The approximately 590,000 guests using the Lufthansa first class lounge and the airline's Senator and Business Lounges (two of each in the satellite terminal) in the first 12 months have shown their appreciation for Bavarian specialties, consuming more than 251,000 bread pretzels, 22,000 kilograms of leberkäse and 1,600 kilograms of the creamy cheese specialty known as obazda.
The shopping options are equally appealing, with a unique mix of modern international brands and traditional German retailers, ranging from Victoria's Secret, Lufthansa World Shop and Picard to Van Laack, Hallhuber and Steiff. Just in the eight shops operated by eurotrade, a subsidiary of Munich Airport, travellers have made 640,000 purchases since opening day, representing a total of around 1.5 million items.
