Munich is the very heart of Bavaria – an ancient and independent region of Germany that has its own unique identity. Today, it is one of the most important commercial and industrial centres in Europe. If you’re flying with us to Munich for pleasure, there is plenty to see and do all year round, making Munich a fascinating and entertaining destination that’s a little off the beaten track.
Surrounded by dramatic sand dunes and the vast open spaces of the Arabian Desert, Dammam Airport (known as King Fahd International Airport) is truly vast with six levels housing a huge selection of facilities, check-in desks, lounges and porter services.
Transportation and parking
The airport has a multi-storey car park attached to it. On the roof of this car park, you can find a mosque, which can be accessed from the passenger terminal through two enclosed, air-conditioned bridges and an additional open bridge.
The airport is around 50 kilometres from Dammam city centre, but is well served by frequent bus links and taxis. Carrier SAPTCO runs shuttle buses between the airport and the bus station every hour. The trip takes around 45 minutes. Taxis are available and are located in the rank outside the main entrance. A limousine service is also available.
Arriving at King Fahd International Airport
There is only one terminal at the airport, but it is vast. Departure check-in is located on Level 6, while boarding gates are on Level 4.
Facilities and amenities
King Fahd International Airport was the first in Saudi Arabia to open duty-free shops within its airport. There is a separate area dedicated to shops selling goods that passengers might find useful during their travels, and in the arrivals area you will also find plenty of cafés, restaurants and banks.
ATMs and currency exchange points are available in the departure and arrival areas. For a light meal with a view, head to the fourth floor (above check-in), where you'll find an observation deck and a café serving a buffet selection of food.

Bavaria’s greatest asset has to be its stunning countryside, and the towering Alps create a magnificent backdrop to this stunning city. The main attraction in the city has to be the Residenzmuseum, home to Bavaria's Wittelsbach rulers from 1508 until 1914.
Tours start in the Grottenhof or Grotto Court with its spectacular Perseus Fountain, and take you through a guided tour of 90 rooms filled with some of Germany’s treasures.
Munich was home to Germany’s great architecture for centuries, and as such has become a city of palaces. The most popular is Schloss Nymphenburg, a wonderful Baroque palace set in acres of fabulously manicured gardens.
Once the home of the Bavarian kings, it is now open to the public and houses several museums including the Marstallmuseum, the Museum Mensch und Natur, the Erwin von Kreibig-Museum, and the Porzellanmuseum München.
