It’s quite right that the Olympia Einkaufszentrum counts as one of the largest shopping establishments in Munich. More than 130 stores, department stores, coffee shops and restaurants make for perfect browsing and shopping. These days, our international visitors enjoy tax-free shopping in many countries, thereby saving on sales tax. Find out how that works here. You can find further information on tax-free shopping here.

Saving on sales tax – this is how:

Have your form stamped at the airport

Important: The purchased goods must be new and unused. Do not pack them in your check-in luggage, so that you can show them to the customs officer.  Here again, remember: No refund of sales tax without a customs stamp.

Collect your refund

Once the Tax Free Form has been duly stamped by customs, you can collect your refund. Go to one of the refund counters displaying the Global Blue logo. Present your completed and stamped Tax Free Form to receive your refund in cash or to your credit card.

If time is running out

If you are in a rush and won’t manage to collect your refund at the counter, just send the Tax Free Form by mail: place the completed and stamped form in a Global Blue envelope and mail it. The refund will then be credited to your credit card. Provide your email address on the Tax Free Form to ensure expedited and efficient communication between you and Global Blue Customer Service.
Please note that at some airports a handling fee per Tax Free Form will be charged if you require a refund in cash.

We wish you a pleasant stay and successful shopping at the Olympia Einkaufszentrum, Munich.
