Experience History

The monument to the Berlin Airlift at Frankfurt Airport recalls how aircrews of the Western Allies supplied West Berlin when it was blockaded by the Soviets after the end of World War II. It consists of an historic Douglas C-3 aircraft, popularly known as a “candy bomber”. Accompanied by a longtime employee of Lufthansa Technik who is thoroughly familiar with the plane’s details, you explore its cabin and cockpit on the trail of legendary pilot Gail Halvorsen.

Have you ever dreamed of being a commercial pilot and controlling a passenger jet while it takes off, cruises and lands? If so, you’ll love taking a seat in the cockpit of a realistic replica of a Boeing 737-800.

Our recommendation: take public transportation

Frankfurt Airport tends to be very busy on weekends, holidays, and during school vacations. The availability of parking spaces can therefore be limited. We advise visitors to use public transportation for getting to and from the airport. There are excellent bus and train connections from downtown Frankfurt and the surrounding region. If you have a Frankfurt Card or RheinMainCard, you’re entitled to discounts.

Pedal Your Way

Alternatively, you can cycle and get exercise while enjoying the countryside. Frankfurt Airport is integrated in the region’s dense network of scenic bike paths. Useful information and tips for getting there by bicycle are available in the Hesse Cycling Route Planner and this map (both only available in German). Along the way, you can stop at points close to the runways for a unique view of planes taxiing, landing and taking off.
