Airport Tours

Do you know which building at Frankfurt Airport could easily accommodate the Eifel Tower, or what happens to mangos before they wind up on supermarket shelves? You can learn all this and much more by going on one of our airport tours with live narration.

You sit comfortably in an air-conditioned or heated bus (depending on the weather) without the need to get out at any at any point.

Our tour guides are looking  forward to sharing their insider information with you!

Frankfurt Airport is an integral part of Frankfurt, just like the city's skyline, the Römer, and apple wine. Over the years it has become one of Frankfurt's most prominent hallmarks. Well-connected by all modes of transportation, it’s an excellent destination for excursions of all kinds, regardless of the weather. Whether you’re looking for ideas for a pleasant outing or a venue for work-related meetings, Frankfurt Airport is ideal. And our airport tours are the perfect complement to a visit
to the city of Frankfurt.  Frankfurt Airport isn’t just a major transportation hub; it’s also a place to have memorable experiences and learn many interesting facts about aviation and flying. How does tropical fruit wind up on your table for breakfast? Where else could you experience the laws of physics “close enough to touch” than during a tour of Frankfurt Airport?
