Munich Airport would be 75 years old today ... - the former tower and the coat of arms hall celebrate their 75th birthday!

The Munich-Riem Airport was actually supposed to open on September 1, 1939, but the opening of the new and modern airport was delayed by the outbreak of World War II.

Thus, after almost 2 years of construction, the Riem airport could only be put into operation on Wednesday, October 25, 1939. The first plane at Munich-Riem Airport was a civil Junkers Ju 52 / 3m from Lufthansa, which came from Berlin and headed for the airport in the Bavarian capital.
