Hilton Munich Airport

The Hilton Munich Airport (until 31 December 2014 Kempinski Hotel Airport Munich)[1] is a hotel located on the grounds of Munich Airport, next to Terminal 2 and the Munich Airport Center business facility.

Following a construction period of 20 months, the hotel opened on 17 May 1994, two years after the airport went into operation. The architect of the hotel is German-born Helmut Jahn of the Chicago-based Murphy/Jahn Architectural Group. The hotel's grand plaza is a 24- metre high and 1400 square metre large atrium hall with a glass roof and decorated with palm trees (18 metres tall) from Florida. Green cubes and grown-over pyramid shapes continue the outer landscape surrounding the airport.

On 1 January 2015, the hotel has been taken over by Hilton Hotels & Resorts and will receive an extension building in the near future.
