We had a 55 minute connection in Munich on Lufthansa in June and made it even with our incoming flight being 25 minutes late. Other people had tight connection as well, and Lufthansa seemed really organized. Our luggage even made the flight.

Still, when I booked our connection I was prepared to spend the night in Munich or not have our luggage make the flight.

Both airlines use Terminal 2 at MUC. Minimum connecting time is 30 minutes.

It's an extremely efficient airport. You do need to go through Passport Control before reaching the gates United use.

As long as the first flight is not too late you are ok. Munich is a very easy airport to transfer. But you don't have much room for a flight delay so hope for good weather.

I had a 45-minute connection time and made it with enough spare time to stop by a store. As others have said, Munich is a very efficient airport - but it's still always a good idea to pack a change of clothes in your carry-on, just in case,

Munich is the best airport to transfer in. we did nue-muc-phl-ind last summer and I never knew this gem of a hub existed. We always went through fra whenever we went to Europe. Goodbye Frankfurt, flying into Munich from now on
