Berlin Airlift Monument
The viewing point at the Berlin Airlift Monument
The viewing point at the Berlin Airlift Monument is probably the most popular gathering place for aviation fans in Germany.
Conditions are best in the morning when the sun is behind you. From here you can watch all of the action at Frankfurt Airport. Especially when the wind blows from the west, which it usually does, you can enjoy a lovely view of aircraft of all sizes landing on the South Runway.
In the early morning you can also observe long-haul jets, which had arrived earlier and temporarily parked in the south of the airport, being pulled by tugs to the terminals to be prepared for their return flights.
The best way to reach this viewing point is to walk across the pedestrian bridge over the A5 motorway from Zeppelinheim.
