The Lufthansa Senator Lounge near gate G28 in the Schengen area of Munich Airport’s Terminal 2 is older than the G24 Senator Lounge. While a bit updated, the G28 Senator Lounge is still in older condition with slightly less space than the G24 lounge. Both lounges have equal access policies, and are meant for use by Star Alliance Gold passengers as well as those travelling in Star Alliance First Class.
The entrance to the Senator Lounge near G28 is shared with the neighbouring Business Lounge (accessible to Star Alliance Business Class passengers and Miles & More Frequent Travellers). Lufthansa and SWISS First Class passengers can use the Lufthansa First Class Lounge.
This Lufthansa Senator Lounge features the same amenities as the other Senator Lounge by gate G24.
- Non smoking lounge
- Office units
- Copy machine

- Credit card phone
- Free local phone calls
- Wireless network

The Lufthansa staff are actually located outside of the lounge and are shared with the only Business Lounge in the Schengen area of Munich’s Terminal 2. Near the entrance to this Senator Lounge are the bathrooms and shower suites; the food/snacks and drinks are located towards the back of the lounge, along with a business centre and some comfortable lounge chairs.
A seating area with slightly older furniture is available right next to the entrance, though I would highly suggest the comfortable lounge chairs located in the back of the lounge.
Next to the food and beverage area, is a “restaurant-style” seating area with plenty of chairs and tables, meant for food consumption.
The back area of the lounge features very comfortable lounge chairs and a business centre with plenty of seating.
A sleeping room is hidden near the back of the lounge, the entrance is next to the area with the lounge chairs – this may be the best part of the lounge!
The food and beverage bar is quite extensive and features mainly the same kind of food as the G24 Senator Lounge. There are warm food items such as soups, and plenty of cold food items such as salads, cold cuts, appetisers, bread, etc. Light snacks are also available near the alcohol selection. The drinks consist of juices, soda, water, alcohol, tea, and a great coffee machine.
There are two areas to the food – a larger area with food and drinks, and then a smaller area that exclusively has food, including the heated options. I decided to try some salads and soup and they were equally tasty; fresh fruit is available alongside of the main choices.
Since it was still Christmas season during my visit, plenty of decorations filled the lounge.
The bathrooms are located near the entrance of the lounge and while a bit old, they’re very clean. Shower suites are also available.
All in all, while a bit old, the Lufthansa Senator Lounge near gate G28 still functions as a comfortable lounge with plenty of great food options and comfortable seating areas. This lounge tends to be more crowded than the newer (and modern) G24 Senator Lounge. Both lounges feature virtually the same amenities and food/drinks.
Considering this is a Schengen lounge, it is great to be able to shower, eat a nice meal, and relax before a slightly shorter flight. Perhaps one of the main disadvantages of the lounge is the lack of natural light – leading to no views of the concourse as the lounge is located away from the gates. With Lufthansa’s new Terminal 2 Satellite opening soon, passengers will also be able to utilise the new lounges in that area of the concourse.
