Bottle filling stations and warm water dispensers

Locations of drinking fountains, bottle filling stations and warm water dispensers in Terminal 1 and 2 at Frankfurt Airport

Right after passing the security check you realize you’re thirsty, but you’ve had to throw away or empty your water bottle: most air travelers are familiar with this scenario. Containers are not allowed to be taken into the security zone if they hold more than 100 milliliters of liquid (3.4 ounces). Fortunately, Frankfurt Airport has taken steps to ensure that passengers stay hydrated: either free or for a very small fee.

Buy bottled water for only 1.50 Euro
The prices charged for bottled water in airports can be very high – but Frankfurt Airport is an exception, because you can buy half a liter of still water for only 1.50 euro in the Duty Free and Travel Value shops. And if you’ve brought an empty bottle with you, you can take advantage of one of several free services.


Drinking fountains and bottle filling stations
Free drinking water is available at a total of 30 drinking fountains in Terminals 1 and 2. In addition, conveniently located “bottle filling stations” are being installed where you can very easily fill empty bottles.
There are also free warm water dispensers in case you need warm water to make tea or prepare baby food.
