Apart from the Riem town centre, the Galopprennbahn Riem (horse race course), the Reitstadion Riem (riding stadium) and the industrial area of Ascheim-Dornach are within a few minutes walking distance.

Riem was the nearest station to the former Munich-Riem Airport.

As part of the Erding Ring Link (Erdinger Ringschluss) there would be a connection to the Munich Trade Fair (Messe München) ground east of the station and a new station would be built there.

Container terminal

The Deutsche Umschlaggesellschaft Schiene-Straße (German rail-road transshipment company) opened a container terminal about a kilometre away to the east of the station and south of the main line in 1992. This consists of three sets of tracks with the latest gantry cranes spanning five 700 m long tracks. The capacity of this plant is 250,000 TEUs. The third sets of tracks was opened in 2012. The reconstruction costs were € 16 million, producing an increase in throughput from 350,000 to 400,000 TEUs.
