Visitors' Terrace

Terrace with a View

Dear Guests,

Thank you for your interest in Frankfurt Airport! We're sorry that the Visitors' Terrace and the  Fraport Visitor Center still have to remain closed and we are currently unable to offer you any tours.

However, we are working hard to get ready for a reopening and hope to welcome you again soon. It will be announced beforehand here on this website, so check in often to get the latest news. We’re already looking forward to greeting the airport’s many fans!

The Visitors’ Terrace in Terminal 2 at Frankfurt Airport is an enjoyable place to spend some time. It features attractive seating, partly beneath pavilions to protect you from the sun or rain. From here you can enjoy a fascinating view of the bustling activity on the apron and aircraft taking off and landing on the airfield. Thanks to a protective wire mesh fence with small gaps for taking pictures of the action out on the airfield, it will no longer be necessary for visitors to clear a security check.

The Visitors' Terrace is located in Terminal 2 at the Food Plaza (Level 4) next to McDonald's. Please follow the signs to the Shopping Plaza in Terminal 2, and from there to the Food Plaza/Visitors' Terrace.

An ideal way to supplement a visit to the terrace is to go on an airport tour (Starter Tour, bookable on site). You will find more information here.
