Munich is a picture-perfect German city of soaring Gothic architecture, gabled roofs and cobbled streets, with a buzzing Mediterranean-style café culture and some of the best museums and galleries in the country. One of its suburbs is an Olympic legacy, and from most parts of the city you attain good views of the surrounding Alps. Fly to Munich with Qatar Airways and enjoy a truly fairytale city in the snow-capped mountains.
Dominated, not by its terminals but by the magnificent mosque that lies at the very heart of the complex, Riyadh’s King Khalid International Airport is a rapidly expanding air transport hub that is becoming increasingly important to the region.
Qatar Airways flights from Riyadh connect this busy business hub to Doha with regular daily flights. The airport itself is modern with interesting architectural focal points that draw on traditional Islamic design.
Parking and transportation
The airport’s parking facilities are excellent, and situated very close to the main terminals. Two very large multi-storey garages are located directly in front of the passenger terminals, on either side of the mosque. With a capacity to hold up to 11,600 vehicles, there is plenty of space in both long and short-term parking areas.
The car parks are connected to the terminals and the mosque by pedestrian walkways under the arrivals level roadway. While there is no public transport to the airport, there are shuttle services from some of the more popular hotels, and a fleet of taxis transport passengers to, and from, the airport. Please note that women are not allowed to drive on public roads in Saudi Arabia.
Arriving in Riyadh
Qatar Airways flights from Riyadh depart from Terminal 1. Moving walkways connect the main terminals (including Terminal 1) and are located in the three link buildings between the terminals.
Airbridges connect passengers to their flights from the departures area, removing the need for bus journeys out to the aircraft.
Facilities and amenities
The focus of the airport is the main mosque, a beautiful building that can house up to 5,000 worshippers inside and a further 5,000 in the plaza outside. Within Terminal 1, there are a range of retail outlets selling luxury goods, travel essentials, books and magazines.
Other facilities include a bank, ATM machines, and a range of cafés and restaurants serving quality international cuisine, snacks and beverages.
Munich is not usually known as a tourist destination, but with so much to offer adventurous travellers it certainly should be. Fly to Munich with Qatar Airways and discover a traditional Bavarian city that has culture, great food, attractions and a warm welcome to offer visitors.
Munich’s classically Gothic architecture is juxtaposed with an ultra-modern commercial sector. But these two completely different styles actually work well together, creating a city that’s eclectic and individualistic. Fly to Munich with Qatar Airways and discover its unique personality for yourself.
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.
